“Super !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We visited already many parks in Europe (mainly in Belgium, but also Phantasialand and Euro Disney) and we have to admit that Europa Park is one of the most beautiful parks we visited.
During Christmas time ...it's amazing with all the lights !
Of course not all attractions were open, but even during these 2 days we never felt bored.
Attractions for every age.
Food for everyone (from shnitzel to pizza,....)
Our hotel Al Cazar: very good hotel !

It's really worth to visit: try to book for 2-3 days if you really want to visit every attractions and shows.

“Great family outing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Decided to go before our tickets were expired for the season and we were not disappointed! Europa Park was beautifully decorated with holiday decor and lights. Although Christmas has passed, you could still enjoy the cheerful mood. The website is very user friendly and it stated which rides were not in use during winter park dates. I should have looked up height restrictions too for my daughter, who waited almost 30 mins in line for a roller coaster and was denied for being 2 cms shy. That was our only sad face of the day...the rest was laughter and awe. Recommend if going..definitely eat the fire roasted maroons, hang out by the camp fires if cold, take a tram to see the entire park first and decide from there which area to start your trip. This park reminded me of the US theme parks I've visited minus the large crowds (low season and during the week)

“We had a whale of a time - you will as well!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

My 10 year old son & I had a looong day at Europa parl earlier this year and we enjoyed every minute of it. We stayed overnight nearby so that we could be one of the first visitors to the Park when it opened. And we stayed until the last minute. We particularly enjoyed the wild and varied roller coasters ( there are currently 11 on the Park). Even though the weather was changeable it didn't dampen our spirits - we just went on the wet rides when it started to rain... There's enough variety for eating and drinking, not that we did much of that. We were too busy hurtling around on the rides all day :-)
We will definitely come again and next time maybe I'll pluck up courage to ride the Silver Star.

“Lovely at Christmas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

We visited in December to look at the lights and decorations and was not disappointed - they have pulled out all the stops to make it look festive and magical which it does.

If you visit at this time of year, note that the big rides are not open and it's half price entry after 4pm which makes it a good value afternoon out
