The whole Scandinavian town appears to be wiped out. All that destruction :(

Edit: A new update from EP's official twitter says Vindjammer is still running but the monorail, Panorama Train and Dschungel-Floßfahrt are closed.

The German tv show "Immer wieder sonntags" that is live aired from the park also continues. You can even follow it live here.

Glad to hear that no one has been injured.

Here you can see just HOW INSANELY FAST the fire started and spread.
Beginning with a bit of grey smoke at 0:25, it literally took a SINGLE 180° SPIN OF THE OBSERVATION TOWER till all was completely engulfed in flames and lost forever:

Please do not post things on our forum unless you actually know what you are talking about. Last time I checked, the coaster at Margate in the UK looks NOTHING like Wodan. Don't be like Trump and spread Fake News. We are better than that.


Sorry, I should check that before posting, you are right. I life in a city close to the park and had a barbecue when all of our towns firefighters drive by in direction to the park. A friend just said that there are pictures of Wodan burning too. I already wondered how this could happen because Wodan is a good amount away of the pirates ride. I should have taken a good look at the picture than would have seen it is not Wodan. So sorry for that overhasty post. Just sad to see a part of my childhood in my home park burning down. But glad no one got serious injuries.

They never stood a chance. I'm surprised to hear they opened today but maybe it's for the best. The faster they can leave this behind them the faster they can work on filling the hole left by the fire.

The devastating fire in Europa-Park has caused a lot of damage. Of the indoor dark ride Piraten in Batavia, only the entrance is left. The Scandinavian themed area was also largely destroyed. Particularly from the Monorail, the damage can be clearly seen. Although the fire has been under control since last night, it is still being damped down. The Norwegian church in the Scandinavian area was spared. Europa-Park opened as planned this morning. With the help of information boards visitors are informed that the themed areas Netherlands and Scandinavia are closed. In addition to Piraten in Batavia being closed, Fjord Rafting, Koffiekopjes and Dschungel-Floßfahrt are also out of use.

In the time it took that one train on Silver Star to make it up the lift hill there was already a huge flame on that roof. Yikes.

That building housed a really nice restaurant, with a great view of the Fjord Rafting. You could open those windows in the summer and look at the rapids below. Loved that place.

Downstream there even was a balcony.
