“One of the best parks you'll ever visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2014

Having visited well over 20 different parks in the world and knowing the business quite good, I had high expectations for Europa-Park. The park is owned by the Mack family, the same people who run Mack Rides, one of the best ride manufacturers in the world!

And I must say, you will NEVER regret a visit to this park! The whole place is packed with attractions ranging from the biggest thrills, to the calmest tours. But not only do they serve you a great plate of attractions, but it's all in the most beautiful settings and theming! The details of the park is amazing (on a Disney-level), and they have really put some effort in making this a great looking experience! Even the hotels are themed!

So just pack your suitcase for one of the best parks in the world!

“Wondeful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Me and my family spent a whole day in Europa Park and it was, indeed, wonderful.
In my oppinion is better than Disneyland Paris, which we also visited several years ago.
Europa Park is a bit more expensive (for 3 persons, about 100 eur) but it worth the money!
The good part is that, after you pay the initial fee at the entrance, you can try any attraction for free and enjoy the day.
I strongly recommend you to reserve a whole day for this park, to be sure you have enough time to try as many attraction as possible. At least this is what we did.
There are several hotels and guest rooms nearby, so you can spend the night close to the park and start the day early :).
Enjoy your time in Europa Park!

“The Best Theme Park in Europe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We have been regularly coming to Europa-Park for over 10 years now!

However it was the first time in years for me the last June when i came back to refresh my children memories.

Once entering the park I instantly forgot about my age and once again felt like a 10-year old!
The park will never stop surprising me!
It is absolutely brilliant, fun, exciting, beautiful (yes I really mean visually beautiful) and you just wish you can stay here forever!

What is amazing that the park is for age groups as well as for people who love adrenaline and those who rather sit down a slow ride on a theme boat. There are so many rides that you really don´t know which one to go to first.

My personal favorite is Blue Fire or Poseidon :-)

The park is divided into countries that have thematic restaurants as well as shops and rides. Since the park is huge I recommend you to take a weekend off and stay 2 full days trully exploring and enjoying the park.

“Europeanized Disneyland!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Well basically the concept is same. A lot of rides and fun for every age group. However here all the theme areas of Disneyland are replaced with different countries of Europe. In each of them you will find the food, art etc. in that particular country's style. Only Disneyland characters are missing however they are replaced with few local characters like some fairies and other characters.
It's one of the biggest theme park in Europe and has a lot to offer. The best way to reach here is with your personal vehicle as it's quite far from the main city. There are number of apartments and hotels at walkable distance from here. I will recommend atleast 2-3 days here.
