A journey of adventure across Europe
Whether it’s Scandinavia, Spain, or Switzerland – as of early 2016, visitors to Europa-Park will be able to discover 14 European countries in a single day. The various themed areas will entice you with their detailed architecture, authentic vegetation, and customary cuisine. Whilst numerous attractions will get rollercoaster fans’ pulses racing. Brave visitors who like it fast and furious should try out the wooden rollercoaster, WODAN – Timburcoaster in Iceland, or be shot through the air at 100km/h on the catapult rollercoaster, blue fire Megacoaster powered by GAZPROM. Reach for the skies in France, too – the Eurosat rollercoaster takes visitors on a trip through the dark expanses of space, whilst the Silver Star rollercoaster takes a steep dive from over 70 metres with speeds of up to 130km/h.
The new Ireland themed area is sure to make a visit to Europe´s most popular theme park even more impressive, unforgettable – and green!
The latest MackMedia movie adventure ‘Happy Family’ will play at the 4D Magic Cinema and from the start of the season visitors can whizz through an eerily funny animation wearing a Samsung Gear VR headset on the YoungStar rollercoaster Pegasus Coastiality. This rollercoaster is the second such attraction in Germany’s largest theme park to embrace VR technology.
In addition to the many attractions, entertainment will be provided by 250 international artists who will perform magic, juggle and dance and sing themselves into the hearts of the Europa-Park visitors.
Fun and events for every season
The seasonal concept of the Europa-Park has proven popular for more than ten years. Spring is the time of novelties, the summer season promises splashy water attractions and adventurous cooling off activities.
The time of sleepless nights is about to begin in autumn. Zombies, killer clowns and vampires have awoken and are hungry for new. Several specials during the Halloween season from 24th Sep to 6th Nov 2016 like the Halloween Festival ‘Mysteria’ or ‘Spook Me! The Europa-Park Musical’ will entertain the visitors. The biggest pumpkin in the world will invite brave visitors to take a ride on the Pumpkin Coaster at breakneck speeds.
The internationally multi-award-winning Halloween event at Europa-Park has taken place since 2007. True-to-the-original horror film sets with impressively realistic monsters leave thousands of visitors shuddering, screaming, running, crying and fearing for their lives every year.
For the opening of the winter season, Europe’s favorite theme park transforms into a giant winter wonderland with thousands of Christmas trees, fairy lights, winter attractions and a festive show program.
