If Intamin is coming in to fix the river rapids anyway.. I’m sure families would like a 400 foot drop tower ;)

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Seems like they won't rebuild Piraten then, to expensive maybe? It will have big shoes to fill the void. They really are working through a check list, They really seem to just shake it off and go further forward which is only greath for the park that they can have that mindset.

It will be fine, they know what they are doing :)

Oh I'm sure they are, I just expected it took some time to get an official statement. I thought they might first look at the damage but it's good to see them keeping it positive.

The Teacups will open later this week according to Facebook.

This doesn't surprise me at all. It wasn't damaged so all they have to do is move some fences and it's good to go again.

On twitter, Roland Mack, co-creator of EP, leaves us a message of hope and thanks rescues services, fans communities, visitors...for their support.

I don't know if there's also english subtitles but this message is enough important to be shared ;)

Cause of fire in Europa-Park is known

060618hou1.jpg


The cause of the big fire in Europa-Park is known. According to the police, the fire could be caused by a technical defect at the Rapids ride Fjord Rafting. "The technical research has not yet been completed, but at the moment we are not assuming a human error", the authorities say.

A part of the German theme park was destroyed by the fire. The themed area Scandinavia, darkride Piraten in Batavia and a data center have largely been destroyed. Visitors and employees were all unharmed. However, seven firefighters were slightly injured, by inhaling smoke.

Research is still being conducted into the exact extent of the damage. Except for Piraten in Batavia and Fjord Rafting, all attractions in the affected area have since been reopened. Europa-Park wants to open the Rapids ride as soon as possible.

^Thanks for the update. Glad to read they're assuming it wasn't human error, etc.

According to Michael Mack on twitter, Piraten is coming back in some form.

So whatever’s replacing it is going to at least carry the same theme.

^To add to that, according to the park's Facebook page, it will be an indoor dark ride!

UPDATE: We can confirm that the 'PIRATEN' are returning!

We are still with great care tthinking about a concept for a large family attraction in the Dutch themed area. We are sorry that we can not name any further plans now. However, it is certain that it will be an indoor dark ride.
