Hey everyone- We got a screaming deal to Amsterdam and Europa Park is on our list. We were going to go next year, but its too good to pass up. Am I reading the website right? They close at 6 pm in the summer?

^&^^ Many European parks don't stay open super late. There may be days in July and August that they stay open later, but if you're looking outside of that time chances are the 6pm close is correctly listed.

^, ^^, ^^^
The times listed for Europa Park can bee seen as "minimum opening times". Usually they are open longer, up until 9 pm, depending on the crowds, weather, ...
Around noon you will see sings at every ride listing the right time schedule for that day, saying "today open until XX pm". Usually, if you are in line before that, you may ride even later.

In Phantasialand, the times are pretty strict, especially on weekdays. That's because of the residents around.

For Heide Park, I can't say.

You can find the operating hours for Europa here:

https://www.europapark.de/sites/default/files/parkoeffnungszeiten_sommer_2019_europa-park.pdf

And like it says on the top right, they extend hours if it’s busier than expected.

Europa Park's opening day is tomorrow and they have released their annual video about all the new things happening this year.
Some of the new stuff is:

- The Scandinavia themed area will reopen in the end of May.
- There will be a darkride in the cellar of the Scandinavian area called Snorri Touren (Named after the mascot for the new waterpark) this will open in the fall.
- Eurosat Can Can Coaster have been updated with new and improved theming, a new scene after the brakerun, and the trimbrakes have been reduced so that the ride is now running as fast as it was before the refurb.
- Madame Freudenreich Curiosités have also received additional theming.
- The new waterpark Rulantica will open in November and the new hotel Krønasår will open in may.
- They have also released concept art for the new Piraten in Batavia that will open in 2020, as well as an exhibition in what was previously the Mack Bank with concept art and a animatronic from the new ride.



New animatronic:


I think this looks absolutely fantastic! And it is impressive how quickly they are recovering from the fire :)

Everything looks great. And the concept art for the Pirate ride... :lover:

Also, the ride vehicle for the dark ride "looks like" it could be a trackless one.
So, is it a trackless ride, or not? Just curious, thanks. :smile:

^They have not said anything about it, but it certainly looks like it is trackless :) And if they are limited on space I would think you could fit in "more" ride if it is trackless.
