I'm guessing the new version will be much more lit up for otherwise the red color scheme would be extranous.

An old attraction in Europa-Park gets a second life. The German theme park will replace the dino darkride Universum der Energie, located in the French themed area. A new background story and another name were created: Madame Freudenreich Curiosités. The dinosaur theme remains the same.

Universum der Energie opened back in 1994. Guests took a five-minute trip through a dark jungle with moving dinosaurs. The darkride was based on Universe of Energy in the Disney park Epcot, Florida, USA.

From this summer visitors will be welcomed in the world of the French Madame Freudenreich. According to the accompanying story, she has a shop with souvenirs and curiosities in the French region of Alsace. Through a former wine cellar guests enter a dense dinosaur breeding farm with prehistoric monsters, fed by the old lady with cake.

The entrance to the darkride is next to the indoor coaster Eurosat. This attraction will also receive a renovation this winter. The iconic rollercoaster is being demolished and rebuilt, with a Moulin Rouge theme. It will be named Eurosat - CanCan Coaster.

I like that they're making the French rides more French. I adore Europa Park but some of the ride themes/locations are a little random :lol:

Yeah, I never understood what made the old Eurosat "French." The plan to freshen up the old dino ride sounds good, too.

Europa really took a lot from Disney when they first opend. But now they have the staff and creative minds to do there own things. With 5.5Million visitors, the money is obviousely there.
I like that they update the little rides, including this one. It will not bring more visitors, so other parks would just let it rod or close, here they take some money in hand to update it. Shows that the park is actually caring.

So there’s a good chance I’ll be returning to Europa in June. Wonder if Eurosat 2.0 could be ready by then.

That's definitely on the creative side for a dark ride story and theme; sounds like a great update!
