Photo TR: Europa Park WINTER AWESOMENESS

Postby FreeFaller » Sat Dec 21, 2013 3:56 pm

Welcome to my Europa Park WINTER AWESOMENESS trip report!

Since I have finished my semester, I had some free time to get over my coaster withdrawals and go ride some coasters! There is no better place where I could have gone BUT EUROPA PARK! Yup, you're right…Europa Park is opened during winter and offers some great X-MAS atmosphere PLUS season pass holders got a cup of FREE ''Glühwein'', hot wine with special xmas spices, so I had one more reason to go there :D

The park was not as crowded as during summer, but there were still plenty of people, especially because winter holidays started in Germany yesterday! However, there were literally no q's longer than 5-10 minutes. People just walked around and enjoyed the atmosphere and all the good food booths (xmas bakery, crêpes, waffles etc.). It was pretty cold (max. 8 degrees celcius), so it was definitely freezing! During the winter season, Europa Park has a ferris wheel which is usually on fairs and it always scares the crud out of me, because it makes some really strange noises, just like the whole wheel was breaking down. Nevertheless, it looks pretty impressive when it's dark, so that saves its spot in the park I think :D

I really like the park during winter, because the park puts so much effort in decorating everything and put lights on the attractions, just to put the park into a magical winter paradise! It looks beautiful and even if you're not riding anything, it's definitely worth going there, because you can walk around and just enjoy life and have a good time! There are even kind of pipes where you can toboggan with tires! Fun to look at all the people!

With that being said, get ready for some magical winter moments at Europe's best theme park and have a wonderful X-MAs and a happy new year!

I always love seeing Europa in the winter. Thanks for posting.

Wow, the park looks stunning, and how amazing that they have some of the coasters open.

I'm jealous! Hoping to get to Europe and Europa Park in the next couple of years.

Very nice photos! I love Europa and no doubt I would love this event! I like how they bring in the giant wheel.

I love donkeys more than me.

EP looking greatz for winter season.

Also like how they bring in the Bellevue ferris wheel - a 56 meter Nauta-Bussink wheel - owned by showmen Oscar Bruch. Nice to see how many coasters they have running while I guess Blue Fire is thanks to the warmer weather we have right now.

Yep, that's it. I'm moving to Germany.

I maintain that Euro-MIR is the greatest ride ever created.

Speaking of this - does Europa still change the soundtrack to Jingle-MIR during the Christmas holidays?
