Holy crap! I was there a few weeks ago and my friends/family weren't too excited to ride Batavia and Fjord Rafting. Now I'm really glad I convinced them at the time.

Such a shame this happened, but I'm sure they will recover and come up with a great replacement ride.

Oh, good. I'm glad they've made that decision.

Thanks for the updates everyone. Just saw the news come through in my twitter feed and looking it up online I was only turning up UK tabloids reporting. While useful, I don't 100% trust them for accuracy...

I was stunned to see Pirates burning down on my Facebook feed. It was a really well done "ripoff" of Pirates of the Caribbean (and I don't even know if ripoff is the right word since it was really well done).

Fortunately no one got hurt.

It's a shame to lose a classic ride, but thankfully no one was hurt. I have no doubt they will replace it with something even better.

I am also keen to see how they move forward from this. I know they're not a place that would give up or cheap out, but I'm interested to see exactly what decisions they make. I hope (and am confident) they'll bounce back quickly and fully.

On the silver lining point, I have to agree that while it will disappoint fans of Pirates, this will be an opportunity to replace a dated, derivative attraction with something hopefully more original and better. Of all the areas that Europa could have been lost, I think this is honestly one of the lesser ones. Considering the extent of the damage it's fortunate no one was apparently hurt.

Three firefighters suffered 'minor smoke related injuries' though.

I'm really glad nobody got seriously hurt.

But even if I wasn't going to the park in just a few weeks that is just devastating to see. Especially since I really enjoyed Batavia (yeah it was a blatant Pirates rip-off but it's a guilty pleasure) and really wanted to ride it again.
