Funny story. I once bought a book called "Just enough Scandinavian" which was basically a travel language book for Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish. The intro to the book stated "Most people in these co

^^Come with us first, I make it easier.

Don't worry about it seeming rude to not know the language, nobody in Europe thinks that. We have so many different languages here in Europe so nobody can expect everyone to know all of them  I for ex

Hey regular Europa Park visitors! Me and my friend are going to visit Europa Park next week from Sweden.

 

As coaster enthusiasts we are wondering if there are any special seats on the coasters that we should check out? We generally ride everything in the back! Any other cool general tips, food, etc are much welcome! (:

^ I would say you try Silver Star at least once in the front row! It is really cool! The rest of the coasters, sit where you want!

About the food, Europapark is generally serving good food. But go at least once during your visit to Food Loop! But often there is a long queue outside of Food Loop!

If you stay at a Europapark Hotel, then use the early entrance! Go and ride Wodan and Blue Fire first! Depending on how many people are there it can get a long line! Arthur has also a longer line than others. But try to ride Matterhorn Blitz as early in the morning as possible, because this coaster has the worst capacity!

Worst of all the hypers I have heard. No airtime except for the first drop when me and a friend rode it in the morning. It warmed up later in the day though so maybe a little bit air time on the hills. Arthor was amazing for a family ride !

Arthur is so weird, but in a good way.

 

How does Silver Star deliver in terms of airtime?

 

Personally I have had mixed rides on it. I have had some really poor forceless rides, but I also had some pretty decent airtime rides. It did seem too be very temperature dependant. If you want airtime I would suggest taking the drive down to Holiday Park and riding Expedition GeForce!

I think it's not bad but the trim brakes are always on at full power. Now they are also magnetic so there is no way to escape them! I like the back seats better even if it vibrates a lot after the first drop. I will let you know how it is this year after my visit next week!

^Thats strange I dont ever remember any vibrations from the back of the train when I rode before. Why are so many B&Ms now getting weird rattles and vibrations!!!
The "Rattle" happens due to Worn Wheels that have Nicks, Cuts, Flat Spots, etc., and or the Wear of the Rubber Shock Absorbers in the Bogies. All Coasters get Worn Wheels; this is nothing new.

^I didn't say it was a new thing. I have been on many coasters that have aged terribly or due to various factors but I was just stating the fact that its strange how many B&Ms that were so good and so smooth for many years are now getting rattles and vibrations. Daemon at Tivoli Gardens is a prime example of this! The rattle was so bad in the loop you could see the training moving side to side yet in 2009 it was smooth as glass and a really kick arse ride.

Did B&M switch to a new company for wheels supply? Rattle seems to be a worldwide issue on a lot of their installations.
Uremet seemed to be the Company most Parks got new Wheels for their B&Ms from, but Sunray and Maclan do a lot of business as well.

Quick question: is there any way to save money on Europa Park tickets for 2 days?

I have a discount from the European Coaster Club which gives me the entrance at group rates but I need another one for a friend. Any idea?

I live in Switzerland and I thought maybe Coop or Migros have something.

As far I know, Europa-Park is one of the only parks in Europe who hasn't discounts on it's parktickets. Someone correct me if I'm wrong!

I don't know, maybe Migros and Coop just sell Tickets in advance for CHF instead of €, but I don't really know it. I always paid there. But if you have Clup TPR Membership then you get discounts!

The park are currently making major alterations to their Splash Battle. The ride will be called 'Whale Adventures: Northern Lights' from July 2015 and EP are adding 2 dark ride sections and new thematic elements, along with a new ride entrance and bridge. I believe the aim is to reduce the 'soaking' aspect of the ride and instead make it into more of a scenic indoor/outdoor boat ride in a bid to attract more riders.

 

English-language EP facebook page EuropaStreet has updated with some images from today of the development as it is ongoing:
