Europa-Park – Germany´s biggest theme park
A round trip through Europe
On an area of 85 hectars, visitors of Europa-Park can discover 13 European themed areas with their typical architecture, vegetation and food specialities. Whether a trip through Greek mythology in the water roller coaster “Poseidon”, twisting through tight curves on “Matterhorn-Blitz”, a trip to the stars in the dark coaster “Eurosat” or upside-down through Iceland on “blue fire Megacoaster” – Europa-Park offers plenty of fun and entertainment for young and old alike. All those who prefer to take things at a slower pace can look forward to the superb show programme with ice-skating show, variety performances, knights´ contests and a host of unforgettable moments.
New 2010: Splashy family fun
Ship ahoy - in 2010, it´s getting wet at Europa-Park! The new family attraction “Whale Adventures – Splash Tours” in the Icelandic themed area invites young and old to go on an exciting expedition. In boats that offer space for up to eight persons, the guests cruise the waters around the volcanic island Iceland and encounter whales and other sea dwellers. But caution is advised, when their boat gets too close to the other marine researchers´ ships, because each passenger has his own water cannon! And once the splashy water battle has started, also the audience ashore can join in… All those who prefer to observe the wet adventure from above, should climb the colourful lighthouse, which will point out the way to Iceland in the 2010 season.
Also new: The new Gazprom theme world, located next to the “blue fire Megacoaster”, which takes the visitors on an intrepid voyage of adventure through the world of energy. With all senses, the guests can experience how energy is generated, transported and used. Moreover, they can discover how Gazprom, one of the leading companies worldwide, has been delivering Russian natural gas to Germany reliably for almost 40 years.
As the ultimate ending to an exciting day, the Europa-Park Hotel Resort promises blissful moments in a Mediterranean atmosphere: in the 4-star superior hotels “Colosseo” and “Santa Isabel” as well as the 4-star themed hotels “Castillo Alcazar” and “El Andaluz”, guests will not only appreciate the inviting beds, but also Italian dolce vita, Spanish temperament or monastic Portuguese charm. And outdoor types will love the Camp Resort with its Native American tents, log cabins and chuck wagons along with a camp site right next to the main entrance.
