Racing on the slides: ‘Vikingløp’ opens in the Rulantica water world

Since 8th February 2023, it’s all about ‘On your mats, get set, splash’! Chief Juror of Miss Germany Bruce Darnell, alongside the candidates for this year's competition, ceremoniously opened the ‘Vikingløp’ racing slide in the Rulantica water world. Eight guests at a time can now slide down a total of 1,500 metres of slides on mats, making ‘Vikingløp’ the largest slide of this type in Europe.

The new highlight in the new ‘Nordiskturn’ area is the ‘Vikingløp’ racing slide, built on a sparkling gemstone mine. After climbing the 30-metre-high ‘Nordiskturn’, a total of eight tube slides are available for visitors looking for the chance to race against each other. As they go down headfirst on mats, every second counts, as only one will be first over the finish line, where they can be cheered on by spectators in the grandstand. Visitors are also able to see their competition during the slide itself.

 “With ‘Nordiskturn’ and ‘Vikingløp’, we are very proud to now be opening the third slide tower, as well as the largest and most complex expansion of the indoor area of the Rulantica water world to date. We have thus been able to expand our year-round offering in a very attractive way," says Roland Mack, owner of Europa-Park. At 7,700 square metres, the slide tower not only offers plenty of water fun for guests aged ten and over, but also gives visitors the opportunity to stay and relax, with over 400 loungers and two F&B facilities.
