Europa Park Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Is there something going on at the park that weekend? Are there other times in July that I should stay away from? Any general tips for visiting Europa Park? I don't know if any locals or regulars are in the group, but any help planning this exciting visit would be greatly appreciated.

Bastille day is that week. Looking at the event calendar EP is planning quite a lot of French-related events that weekend and since the French kids are out of school for all of July there should be crowds.

Thank you so much, now the lack of available hotel rooms in the area makes sense. The trip is happening sometime in July based on my family's schedule, (unfortunately that much is certain,) but now at least we know what we're up against.

I'm speculating on a Ghost Train kinda dark ride, maybe even little Wilde mouse like coaster section added to it (Mack E-Motion coaster probably).

 

Im pretty sure that Mack will never build another E-Motion coaster! I think that has to be regarded as one of their biggest failures.

They're still selling it on their website so if a park wants it they'll build it.

^ & ^^ Was Linnanmaki Park in Helsinki the only park that bought one of these coasters?

 

Just curious. It was 'okay'. I thought the tilting would be more intense than it actually was.

There was a second one in the Amsterdam Dungeon, it closed in 2014 and was only 80m short.

 

And well yes, they still sell those things. For the ghost train/coaster I'd expect more banking than from the one in Helsinki.

^ I totally forgot that one! I rode it in it's first season, back in Oct.2005. And David and I

rode it in 2007 as well. It was fun for what it was. Actually, I think it better served that

attraction (The Dungeon) than the one at Linnanmaki.

I'm very curious about that "V" as that could mean "vliegen" What is Dutch for Flying not in German that is "fliegen". So also filming in Dutch could that mean this ride will be Dutch themed? Just a thought. I could however have the complete wrong impression and it could be for "vogel" wich is German for Bird (But that also counts for the Dutch ).

The park had to close it's gates at 1.30pm on thursday (fathersday) as over 50000 people already entered the park and they reached capacity. The park stayed open until 9.30pm with all all the mayor rides running(I think normal closing time this time of the year is 6pm)

Looks like a good season for Europa

This is not true, the park did not close its gates... Not sure where this false information is coming from?

Hmmm, I was there and yes, it is true, why else would I post it?

Because this has never happened in the history of the park and the parks communications director confirmed on facebook that this is not true.

Looks like they've done a really nice job on the train, but i really don't get the coaster itself, i understand that it's aimed for small kids but it really could have been a little longer. Not that it'll matter too much though because the area is going to look great overall!
