Sound very fast. I know it's mostly concrete but still it can be damaged by fire and when it needs to contain water that can be a problem. Theming can be fixed anytime later.

It will be fine, they know what they are doing

 

I also heard that they want to reopen the teacups in the Netherlands section as soon as possible.

The Teacups will open later this week according to Facebook.

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

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

Which means they really want to get the park operating as normal as soon as they can. Really curious if they want to get the foot stands that are okay back open again.

Good on Europa Park, trying to get the attractions back up and running right away. There's something to be said about a park that is willing to take the hit so that their guests will continue to have good experiences, even after the fire.

All the work the park has done really shows how much they care about the emotions of their guests. Kudos to you, Mack!

 

Beyond that, I'm excited to see what takes the place of Scandinavia.

^ Actually, I'm hoping they replace Scandinavia with.... Scandinavia.

Rebuild it, with new features/design, etc. That'd be nice of them to do.

Europa-Park makes plans for a new attraction after devastating fire

Less than four days after the devastating fire in Europa-Park, plans are being made for a new attraction. In the fire of last weekend, the dark ride Piraten in Batavia was completely wiped out. "We can confirm that an attraction for the whole family will once again arise in the future," says a spokesperson.

 

It is not yet clear what type of attraction will be built there. "After the loss of Piraten in Batavia, the Mack family thinks intensively about a new concept." Europa-Park is owned by the Mack family. The daily management is in the hands of directors Michael and Thomas Mack.

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.

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.

 

I also heard that they want to reopen the teacups in the Netherlands section as soon as possible.

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.

I’m sure families would like a 400 foot drop tower

...no they wouldn't. (I'm pretty sure you're just joking, but still)

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

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.

^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.
