Europa Park Discussion Thread

Postby Ultracoasters » Fri Mar 18, 2005 3:20 am

Hey everybody!

Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

So, is it a coaster, or a boat ride?? :D When will the debate start? We just got our reservation confirmation for Hotel El Anduluz so I'm excited!

IMO, it's a boat ride...probably the BEST damn looking splashdown boat ride I've ever seen! But there's nothing about it that makes me say "That's a coaster." I mean, Splash Mountain also has all those elements, and it's not a coaster....

I have seen these pictures a few days before. It is a "Mack" water coaster. I think it looks a little bit like a lower version of the Journey to Atlantis attraction! However, I think that attraction makes a lot of fun. I will ride Atlantica SuperSplash this summer.
