I've been reading the TPR-forum for a while now but never posted a topic, so here it is . This is my first report in English, but I'll do my best . Last month we finally visited Europe's biggest theme park; Europa-Park. To fully enjoy the park we decided to stay there for 4 days, and they were worth it!
Where should I begin? Roller coasters off course! Europa-Park has 11 of them, wich makes it the park with the most roller coasters in Europe. Silver Star was the first one on the list. I never rode a roller coaster that was this high, but according to me the ride does not take fully advantage of it's heigth. I prefer Intamin Mega Coaster's as Expedition GeForce (Holiday Park) and Goliath (Walibi Holand). Blue Fire is a lot of fun, but has a weak launch I think.
However the ride is just odd, I really loved Eurosat. Matterhorn-Blitz is an original wild mouse with nice theming and Alpenexpress is a standard powered coaster but rides through a beautiful cave.
Pegasus, Euromir, Schweizer Bobbahn en Wodan were just disappointing. Pegasus is a fun junior coaster but has almost no theming (compared to the rest of the park). Euromir is just painful and the big space station is really ugly ! Schweizer Bobbahn is a ride I'll never like, Mack Bobsled's give me a headache. Also Wodan, Europa-Park's newest roller coaster, disappointed me. The queue line and station are really beautiful but the ride is too short, I think.
Europa-Park also has some water rides. I know Europa-Park is kinda a catalogue from Mack Rides but Poseidon and Atlantica are almost the same rides. I like Poseidon more because of a nicer station and the extra coaster track.
Europa-Park also has some strange dark rides. Piraten in Batavia is the most beautiful dark ride, I think. There is so much to see, one of my favorites for sure! I also liked Abenteuer Atlantis, a nice shooter that every park should have . Geisterschloss kinda reminded me off Disneyland Paris's Phantom Manor. Ok, Phantom Manor is way better but Geisterschloss is not a punishment . Schlittenfahrt and Universum der Energie weren't that much fun, they were just boring!
We did not see all of Europa-Park's shows. The iceshow was very nice and did not bored us at all! The Spannish Arena-show wasn't that intresting, it just takes too long. Carnevale a Venezia is very very odd! I still don't know what to think of this old animatronic bird show . Not really a show but the new 4D film is really nice!
I don't feel like discuss every flat ride but overall they where all nice. Knowing Europa-Park only costs € 37.50/day (about $ 47), it is really great! They don't thematize everything into detail and the park has almost no thrill ride... but I don't care, it's great! Some parts of the park are a little bit outdated, but I'm sure they will work on that in the future . Just one more thing; Europa-Park's enchanted forest is nothing compares to the one in Efteling .
See you soon Europa-Park!
I also made a video (in HD);
