I agree with your opinions on all of the rides, especially Silver Star. I didn't like it quite as much as you did, but it was far, far better than I had been led to expect. Only one I differ on is Wodan, though you're right in that it has an odd lack of airtime. It's very different than other GCIs in that you have to appreciate it for its sprawl and visuals.
Hotel Kronasar looks better with every picture I see. It will be tough deciding between it and Colosseo when I go back.
I think I lucked out on the crowds (it was a Wednesday) and the app really helped pick lines when they were short. I pretty much power-walked everywhere and if I wasn't on a ride, I was in a line. That said, if I had 2 days, I would have taken at least an hour out of the day for food/snacks/beer, but I was on a mission to get to Switzerland!!!
I shouldn't go overboard about Silver Star, it's still not an Intamin Mega
, but it was far better than what I was expecting and really enjoyable.
I'm definitely being harsh on Wodan. It was pretty out-of-control fun, I just am obsessed with airtime.
As for Kronasar, as mentioned above, I loved it, but Colosseo was really impressive to. If you have already stayed in Colosseo, definitely book the Kronasar. If you haven't, flip a coin or go with the cheaper option. You can't go wrong either way.

I am surprised by the tepid rides on Wodan. To me, that was the dark horse secret surprise when I visited Europa Park.
It felt wildly out of control, and although there were only a couple air pops, they were intense (particularly the one as they take the photo). The park is amazing.
I NEED to get to GE Force - your photos were mouthwatering.
Wodan was wild, I shouldn't say it wasn't intense. It's just the lack of air is all.
Yes, Expedition GeForce is out of this world.
