Yes, it is cool to see the animals how they really eat. I must say that would really add to the experience. They don't sit down to a dinner of boneless chicken breast with a side of Foie Gras. I found that fascinating.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

Wildfire looks just as great as expected! I am more impressed with the rest of the park since it has not been seen as much. They really have a TON of potential here to make it a world class zoo/amusement park. This is a huge step in the right direction and I can't wait to see what else they have in store in the coming years.
If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year

And this... This is amazing! I've never seen animals in any American parks/zoos eating real animal flesh like this in such a natural form--it would always be processed meat or they would be fed backstage. Just awesome to see the cultural differences when it comes to visibility to certain things in these parks versus the US ones. Thanks for sharing!


It would be way too awesome to see and hear American people's reactions when they round a bend of a safari and the tour guide says, "Now over here we have our African lion family making a sustainable meal out of a horse." :lol:

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Wildfire looks amazing and the Sky Ride Safari looks great too. Kolmarden is definitely on my list if I go to Sweden.

Really enjoyed reading through this! Thanks for all the posts. I would love to take a trip like that some day. Wildfire looks insane, I really need to get to Europa, and I have to experience the goodness that is Expedition GeForce!

What a great trip report, thank you! It's great to see what other parks look like overseas. It's obvious the pride the parks take in keeping everything clean and looking great. Maybe some of the Six Flags parks should look at these trip reports and take some notes... lol

Thanks so much for the trip report! I have never been, but this is definitely my favorite park, out of all the reports I've seen for the other parks. Well, maybe Tivoli is a tie with Europa Park. The landscaping and attention to details is just unreal. They have a real gem of a park for sure!
