We are back @europa_park for day two of our visit!

Image
Image
Image
This morning we are trying out the VR coasters @europa_park! The system works surprisingly well and is lots of fun!

Image
Image
Image
Attention to detail @europa_park is incredible. These statues at Wodan that move their heads when the train arrives!

Image
Wodan @europa_park is one of only a few wooden roller coasters in Germany!



Image
Blue Fire is a huge fan favorite roller coaster @europa_park! Who loves this ride?



Image
Image
Image
Image
Adding a giant ball to bumper cars to create "football bumper cars" is a GREAT idea!

Image
From the top of Silver Star @europa_park you can see almost the entire layout!



Image
I love this. I'm not sure why. But I love it! lol

Image
Image
Image
Image
The group hung out with Arthur today @europa_park! Such a fun ride!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Love Poseidon! Got a group of us to ride it today!

Image
Image
Image
Image
This 1900s Carousel is open only for private events @europa_park! It's a piece of amusement history!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Lunch today was some great Italian at Hotel Colosseo!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Taking a few rides on Euro-Mir tonight! Love this funky ride!

Image
Image
Image
Image
Dinner tonight is over at the Saloon in the @europa_park campground! This area is super cute & awesome!

Image
Image
Image
Seriously great ribs, steaks, & burgers! A hidden gem @europa_park resort!

Image
Our "anti-social social networking" table! lol

Image
Super huge thanks to Jakob, Denise, and everyone @europa_park for a FANTASTIC day!

How are the operations on their vr ride? Do the headsets feel any different then the six flags ones if you have been on any of them? That park looks beautiful

At the campground, was that Elissa's first baked potato of the trip?

Great trip report! From the coasters to the food, this TR is pushing Europa Park to the top of my bucket list.

I added this video to our Holiday Park report:

PS. and yes, I know that 24 flips is not a huge amount especially for those who are obsessed with rides, go all the time, and know how to flip this thing 50-70 times (as we've been told many times by people who feel the need to brag about their count) but for a *NORMAL HUMAN* - one that doesn't go to parks every day, constantly obsess over rides, and don't know the inner-workings of every theme park attraction, going upside down 24 times on *ANYTHING* is a huge deal and not something that most people will ever do.

This video was created for "fun" not for some weird competition for other people to be all "WELL...I can do this SOOOO MUCH better than YOU!"

I just wanted to put that disclaimer out there because the internet full of ride nerds have already told me how much I suck at doing this ride...and I frankly don't really care.

Looks like an awesome day indeed, what a beautiful park.

^I'll have you know that I actually managed to get almost 1 flip on such a ride at some point! So there.

Can I park my donkey here?

All of these parks look just amazing. Remind me of BGW. Really, really wish we had more parks in the US with this level of theming, landscaping, attention to detail, etc. I love thrills rides as much as the next guy, but I'm a sucker for theming and attention to detail. Even just a little bit can make a good ride/park/restaurant great.
