Yeah, I think so as well. It's not really the same style.

 

But another funny coincidence is how Disneyland Paris is dropping out the Jules Verne aspect of its Discoveryland, like as if it is an outdated theme, and at the same time, Europa Park is stepping right into it.

 

Don't forget Jardin d'Acclamation is revamping the whole park into a Steampunk theme complete with new rides including some more thrilling for older folks.

There's also Phantasialand a few hours away embracing steampunk with Rookburgh next year.

And from across the pond, Megapark in Quebec is also doing a steampunk overall.

Nice! Two great places, loved them both. Puy du Fou has a bunch of amazing shows- I felt 2 days are requiered, as well as seeing La Cinéscénie, but you'd have to book like 6 months prior.

Also, try to ride the mecanical elephant at Les Machines...

Hey guys, I'm currently studying in the north of Italy and was thinking of going to Europa Park. I have other parks to visit and not much time as some close in the end of October. I saw EP is open also in November and December but my question is if it is common for the park to close some rides in that time of the year because if it is perhaps I'll try to go there sooner.

Thanks

^ You can see the opened attractions during winter on the official park homepage: http://www.europapark.de/en/attractions/all-attractions

Attractions that are closed during winter have a small text "closed during winter" below them. You can also select to only display attractions that are opened during winter at the top, though I guess you are probably interested in what is closed. Although Blue Fire is also mentioned to stay closed during winter I think it will open on some days if temperatures are high enough. Don't quote me on that though

Eurosat is closing on November 5th for the renovation so if you want to ride it you should get there this month.

 

If you're willing to travel a few extra hours north Phantasialand has pretty much all rides except River Quest and Wakobato open during the winter season (Chiapas only closes if temperatures drop below zero degrees Celsius).

I am looking forward to Phantasialand in the Winter as they have great seasonal food and the park is all decorated and so beautiful. You really do not want to leave . To stay on topic, Europa does a great job too. The water rides are down, but I think I did Blue Fire in December, so it is not down for the Christmas season .

Hey guys, thank you for the previous advice. Does anyone know how their rain policy is? Because I don’t have many options to got there and the weather forecast might not me too good. Do they usually close rides (specifically the coasters)?

It rained one time I was there and everything remained open, they did however close Euro-Mir for about 15 minutes because it started to absolutely pour down! But other than that everything was open

I emailed them directly about this before I went last year. All rides are apparently open during rain but taller rides like Silver Star and Euro Tower close during thunderstorms.

It is definitely strange to see them pulling apart Eurosat. I'm curious to see how they work the rebuilt structure into the redesigned area where it will live. No matter what, Europa Park continues to appear to be one of the most beautiful European parks and it remains among the top of my list of places in Europe I need to get around to visiting at some point.

I think Europa actually is one of the most beautiful parks world wide, only to be topped by some Disney Parks(not Disney Paris, Europa beats that one) and maybe Busch Gardens. The beauty about Europa is that you want to chill there. The coaster line up is not really stunning, but you want to stay there and not leave, enjoy the food and the beauty.

^ Well for VR, that will certainly be different, heh.

 

Oooooooooo Le Can-Can! C'est Magnifique!

 

Actually, there's a "Moulin Rouge" Musical opening on

Broadway very soon, so the timing for both is pretty awesome!

Ummm...

 

I'm willing to give Europa the benefit of the doubt and I hope this turns out to be one truly wacky ride that makes me giggle like a dope, but first thoughts are definitely of a more "wtf" nature.
