Maybe I was just unlucky and visited Europa Park in a very crowded day. Both times I visited Phantasialand and Efteling (and I can even add Hansa Park to that list of awesome parks as well) all lines were a walk on or had a 15min wait, everthing was easy to find on the park map and even when I didn't have a map with me I could easily figure out how to get to where I intended to go. At Europa Park I tried to get all the credits in one day and couldn't since it took me over one hour to get each one of the bigger credits. Even the smaller ones had a 45+ min wait. Also, even with the park map on my hands I still had a hard time figuring out the fastest route to point A to point B due to the overwhelming abundance of themeing, paths, gardens and walkways.

Maybe if I had more time at the park or if my visit was split into 2 or more days I would have liked the park better, but then again the quality of the park can't be defined but how many days you need to visit it in order to fully appreciate it specially when It only took me half day to fall in love with Efteling, Phantasialand and even Hansa Park

Every time you go to Holiday Park, I get the impression that it's a real hidden gem, I great park that perhaps deserves more recognition than it gets. And, surely, being the home of your favorite coaster helps! That Sky Fly looks insane! I don't think I could take 24 consecutive flips without feeling nauseous! I'm looking forward to seeing your visit to Europa Park, always my favorite park to see in your trips.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Our morning @europa_park starts with an insane breakfast at the amazing Hotel Bell Rock with characters!

Image
Image
Image
I could easily live off the bread selection alone at Hotel Bell Rock!

Image
Hotel Bell Rock is ridiculous! It's like the Yacht Club/Beach Club of Europe, but even nicer!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Upon entering @europa_park you are immediately reminded you're in one of the world's best theme parks!

Image
Image
Euro-Mir! My faveodte ride @europa_park and quite possibly one of the best rides on the planet!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Poseidon is quite possibly the best water coaster in the world!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Even with a line that long for Euro-Mir the wait is only 20 minutes and worth it!

Image
Image
Image
Image
I don't get what the big deal about @europa_park is. I mean don't ALL parks in America look JUST LIKE THIS??? ;)

Image
Image
Sarah RAN to go get a picture of the geese as soon as she saw them!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Silver Star is the tallest coaster @europa_park! 35 min posted wait was only 20ish. Love their operations here!

Image
Image
Image
Image
The best attraction @europa_park isn't a ride, it's our own personal Raclette Hut! Best theme park food EVER!!!

Image
Best part about sitting in our Raclette Hut? You get an awesome view of the bobsled!

Image
Was awesome running into these guys from @EPFANS_CH here at @europa_park! Be sure to follow them!

Image
Image
Image
I love the random characters you meet around @europa_park!



Image
Image
Image
Efteling had the pooping donkey but @europa_park has the puking donkey!


Image
Image
Image
Image
Just more amazing theming around @Europa_Park! I never get sick of posing more photos of this place!

Image
Image
Image
Image
And in case you weren't aware, the many dark rides @europa_park are amazing! Disney level quality!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Arthur was a super-cool themed attraction with a amazing ride system!

Image

Waiting in the well-themed queue for the bobsled ride @europa_park

Some views of @europa_park from the observation tower.

Image

Image
Yes, it's a Pirates knock-off, but it's really the best one!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Soooo... Time to remove the UK section from @europa_park? :)

Image
Image
Image
Image
The much better version of "Small World!" ;)

Image
Image
Image
Image
You know you are in a great park when even the toilets are heavily themed!

Image
Image
Image
Image
We rode the REAL "Frozen Ride" today!

Image
Image
Image
Image
We had some extra ride time on Wodan tonight after the park closed!

Image
Image
Back at Hotel Bell Rock. Seriously amazing deluxe resort!

Image
Image
Image
Image
We walked to Hotel Colosseo to hang out in the "jail cell bar." Things may have gotten a little weird!

Showing some German support for #EURO2016

Am I the only who thinks it looks like Garbles is trying to eat this woman's arm???

Image
Good night @europa_park! What a fantastic first day at the resort!

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Not a single part of this TR has changed my "I want to be Robb Alvey in my next life" opinion...what an awesome trip, pics, and overviews for those of us stuck in the US for the Summer...keep them coming...I think I just spent an hour of my Sunday enthralled by these parks that I've seen countless TRs on in the past and yet it was like the first time seeing them.

What sort of food did you guys have in the Raclette Hut? Looks like it involved cheese!

Ahhhh... I should have searched 'Raclette' rather than 'Raclette Hut', yields a lot more valuable information!
