Thanks - I will definitely go for the rapidus pass. Its equivalents at CF & SF parks were invaluable during my mid-west theme park tour - that was also during school holidays (actually it might have been school field trip season or something - the whole month of June!!!). I will come back with more questions once I've read up on the thread.
Ok guys - I'm way behind with the planning so I'll just have to ask for help from you guys. I will be there in a week and a half and preparation (for parc asterix but the rest of france) is very under done. 1. Is Pass Rapidus EUR25 for each ride that is eligible? Do they have unlimited Pass Rapidus - or is Premium Ticket the combo deal of entry + unlimited rapidus? It's quite pricey at EUR149, (I'm sure worth it) Is there any other option? 2. Is there any order I should take on the rides (I'm after mainly roller coaster type maximum thrill rides)? You know, to avoid queues as much as possible and so on - I think I've read some strategies on other park threads. 3. Any other general advice?
They had an unlimited Rapidus option available in April separate from the VIP package, but the one included with the VIP package is all I see now. Even on an April weekday with showers forecasted, the park was slammed. All major coasters had 30-60 minute waits.
Since the Rapidus gets you onto the next train of all coasters (including choice seating on Oziris and Pegasus, and usually the back on Zeus), it was well worth it. The VIP package also includes parking, a full meal with alcohol at their really good restaurant, and admission.
If you go with the Rapidus pass, you should knockout Vol D'Icare and Discobelix out early as they're the two longest waits for non Rapidus rides. At rope drop, half the park runs to Zeus and the other half runs to OzIris.

There does not appear to be a version of Pass Rapidus that offers unlimited.
The Premium Ticket includes entry, lunch, and UNLIMITED skip the line on the same 8 attractions. I believe that's what we got for our group on our last visit, it was great.
Can't help you as much on 2 and 3 as it's been a few years since our last visit.
Wait - so Pass Rapidus let you skip the line at each of those 8 rides, as opposed to one of the 8 rides? I really should pay more attention Anyway - do rides have separate lines for first rows like usual? As you had unlimited rapidus with the premium ticket, how many rides did you manage to squeeze in all up? Cheers
Oziris was the best by far - Zeus was ok and so was Goudurix. I rode Oz and Zeus a few time before decided to call it quits. operation was pretty loose yet efficient - cell phone selfies and glasses etc no problems - Europa park I visited a bit later was far more strict - unnecessarily so, I mean Blue Fire is ok but nothing to write home about and Wodan is good but not a great woodie. As for La Trace du Hourra, is it on track or free running like Flying Turns at Knoebels? Thanks all for your help. Cheers.
