That's too bad to hear that the day didn't go as well as planned. I can understand the single-rider frustration. I'm used to US parks where the single rider lines move quickly, however I think the reason they don't at Europa Park (same goes for Phantasialand) is the fact that a lot of the rides you are assigned seating and the crew is very good at filling empty seats that way. It's definitely more of a crap-shoot, especially on 2-per row rides.

I saw on social media that Wodan's lift chain tore yesterday.

In typical Europa fashion, they fixed it overnight.

^Of course they did! This isn't Six Flags we're talking about!

I'd like to buy a vowel!

I mean, it helps that they have a huge machine shop literally down the road from the park to build (most of) their rides. But yeah, definitely not the Six Flags method of "we don't need spares, just order a new one when this one breaks."
