Cool, since all rides come from Mack(with the exception of Silver Star), would this be the company's first dark ride?

It looks like it has an Atlantis theme, so maybe it will have a water feature some how worked into it.

Abenteuer Atlantis (Atlantis Adventure)

Postby Gregor » Sat Jun 02, 2007 6:18 am

Abenteuer Atlantis (Atlantis Adventure) is the new interactive dark ride at Europa-Park where visitors can dive down into the deep sea since the 2007 season. It is located at the Greece area of the park and it was built by MACK Rides.

You can find a english review of the attraction at lifthill.net with some technical details, construction pics and an interview with Michel den Dulk, the designer of Europa-Park.

Looks great and I like how it appears to have a continous cycle of cars compared to most non Disney dark rides where each car is loaded seperate and has horrible capacity. I wish all dark rides were like that.

I saw, went and conquered Steel Dragon 2000. It's still crap!

This looks like fun. But I'm not a fan of the continous cycle of cars. It takes away the suspense of being alone. Then again, this ride looks more 'funny' than scary so it might be better.

I love the fact that dark rides are making a comeback, the quality on this one looks great! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

It isn't very often i slate Europa, but this ride is a waste of time.

I found it VERY short, uninspired and frankly bland.

Tomb Blaster at Chessington, Buzz at Disneyland Paris - even Duel at Alton Towers is probably better.

Atlantis Adventure needs a lot more until it matches Europa's usual high standards.

I though it was a let down.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Yeah for "Oversized Lava-Vomiting Crab" !!!!! :lolr:

*Imagines a grandpa telling his grandchildren about how he met the Oversized Lava-Vomiting Crab in Europa Park's Abenteuer Atlantis when he was young and how it was the funniest/creepiest thing he'd ever seen in his life!*

I want to ride that. It might not be Maverick, but it's still worth a few laughs. It reminds me of the buzz lightyear ride at WDW.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This ride looks fun, but it looks like something you might find at Morey's Piers.(see Photo TR from Robb and Elissa's trip in '04) Europa Park looks like a really nice park, but from the photos, this ride seemed really rushed.
