So just to give everyone an idea, here is the park map:

It is the "Netherlands" and "Scandinavia" section that has been lost according to Michael Mack in his Tweet above.

And here is the list of rides in each of those areas:

It would seem from the photos that the Pirates attraction was a total loss, but it's hard to tell what other attractions may have also been completely lost. I have not yet heard any other confirmed details.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Wow. I’m not really sure what to say that hasn’t already been said. I’m not too familiar with Europa Park, so I’m going to be honest, I had no idea what these rides were or what the areas were like. But since it’s Europa Park I imagine they were incredible. What a loss. Sad say indeed.

I think it will be tomorrow afternoon before the first real confirmation comes. So far I've heard that firemen from more than an hour away have been called to the park, its huge. If my memory serves me right the Norwegian Village is gone. This is a huge loss for Europa Park, I really hope that the damage will not increase further.

Piraten in Batavia was part of the classic rides in EP.

This was an "old school" dark boat ride but really cool ;) (1987)

This attraction is in the memories of all the people who started their "park career" in EP.
There's lot of psscchhhii animatronics and it always give you nostalgia.

Hope that no one is hurt.

Did my donkey title just change???
