Thanks, KarlaKoaster and Murfie! I'd heard the name, but never knew exactly what they were. They sound a bit like "sweet blinis." :Pr I've been to Amsterdam before, but I never got to enjoy these delicacies. Although every corner seemed to have a raw herring stand. (Not bad, actually! Altho poffertjes sound VERY tasty! :)

^ In a few of the Japanese parks, they offer the same sort of pastry
(and made the same way), but in the form of little bears. :smile:

In Europa park, though....those are Dee-lish > doughy little bears. ;)

Just now catching up with this. Thank goodness no one was seriously hurt. Attractions can be replaced, people can't be.

It'll take a few years, but I'd also bet that the area will be back to normal, if not better than it was, soon.

From the park's Twitter:

We are working day and night so that Fjord Rafting can be in operation again as soon as possible. We expect this to happen in the coming weeks.

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

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

300518dise.jpg

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.
