Came here in July, it was 37 degrees but luckily there are a lot of water attractions and coasters.
Parking was not to expensive but spots are quite small. From the parking it was not far to the entrance. The parks looks amazing and most EU countries have their own region with attractions, coasters and food joints. The decoration of the regions and attractions are phenomenal!
Due to COVID only maximum amount of people were allowed in the park. Still enough people but manageable. A lot of employees check if measures are followed up especially in waiting lines where, also outside, mouth mask, were obligated. Even in the attractions self, no problem at all!
Park is large but because there was a maximum of people allowed the queues were very doable. Max waiting time for us was 30 minutes and the virtual waiting lines also worked perfect (through the app). In the app you also see the realtime waiting times.
Lot of fun coasters and water attractions. There are enough food locations and prices are good.
We had a perfect day, even better than expected!

WOW…where do I start? You could visit this park, not go on a single ride and still leave having experienced a real feast for the senses, the attention to detail is just stunning. The whole park is full of little touches that they really could have got away without doing…for example, every single toilet in the park is themed to the area it is in, the highlight being the weeing gnome in Grimms Enchanted Forest! We posted a photo on social media of us in the Greece area and people genuinely thought we were in Greece! When it comes to the rides they are varied and plentiful, whatever your age there are lots of them to keep you happy. CanCan coaster was a particular favourite of ours and a perfect example of a rollercoaster that without theming wouldn’t be anything special…but the queue line, lighting and onride audio ensures you leave with a huge grin on your face! We spent three whole days there and felt that this was the perfect length…queue times were very reasonable and we managed to do pretty much all of the rides and shows. The park is spotlessly clean with immaculately tended gardens and was simply magical! Probably the best non Disney theme park in the world?

It was a very pleasant place to be at. At the beginning when the park literally just opened, queues were short but as the day progressed especially into the afternoon the crowd began to flood in (even whilst covid) and waiting time for rides increased. Although we were pretty sure it would have been much worse without covid.

However, the experience was amazing, definitely worth the entrance fees. The shows were great, rides; both thrilling and chill were enjoyable. Food there was pricey, but which theme park doesn't charge premium prices for food?

Definitely recommended and a place to visit when you're in the area, or make a trip there just for it.

How does a day with the familly at Europapark look like?

You pay the parking place 8euro for 1 car: after 40minutes of car drive and 20minutes to reach the parking (too much cars at entry), 20 minutes to reach the europapark by foot.
You arrive at 11h30 and you are happy.

First attraction: you wait 1h for a 5minute attraction, you realize that it is worse on other attractions (90min+).
You install the app "virtual line": impossible to have 1 quick wait time.

At 13h20 after 1 attraction, you found a "restaurant" you wait again 20minute to eat a hotdog drink and donut 10Euros.
You restart the queue at 14H till 19H, you are lucky if you can do 4 attractions.

The streets are so crowdy that it is even difficult to walk.

Conclusion: 333euros for 5 attraction
wait time: 9H
Play time: 50min
5 persons: 55EuroX5 = 275euro
Parking: 8Euros
Food: 50

Our family of 5 (3 teens-2 adults) decided to visit Europa Park, during Pfingsten, and it was a blast. Our teens enjoyed all roller coasters, but we didn’t realize the park closed so early, so we recommend going to the end of the park, and work your way forward, if possible. The park didn’t have any rooms available for us 5, so we stayed at Titisee; perfect for families, and less than an hour drive from Titisee to Europa Park. Although we loved our Europa Park vacation, we were disappointed that the Portuguese section did not offer “pastel de nada,” at coffee stands. Other than that, “Enjoy!”

Horrible experience! Came here with kids on May 27th. Queued for 30 minutes to enter the park. 90 min waiting for every ride. No place to eat, or even buy water! What was the best value for mine in Europe has turned to crap, as the park owners let too many people in, how sick is that? And Pegasus broken dow, people stranded mid ride!

Horrible experience! Hygiene concept due to COVID-19 sounds good on paper but is not enforced at all. We really didn‘t feel safe and eventually left early.

Too many people, no distancing observed (1.5m marks on the ground are just for decoration I guess), hardly anyone is wearing masks, even indoors and the worst: when you ask staff (if you are lucky getting a hold of anyone!) they basically tell you that they can‘t do anything about people not adhering to rules…

Rollercoasters etc are fun but definitely not worth catching the virus!

Definitely not recommended if you care about your health!!!

The worst day every!
This used to be a good and solid park. One of the best in Germany in based in my opinion.

But with time passing by and my recent visit, they won‘t see me again.
Anyone truely interested in a themepark, here is my advice: Go to Disney and forget this cheap copy!

Corona still being very present in Germany but in the Europapark? Well leave all your social obstacles at the entrace gate and don‘t worry they barely have enough staff to clean the toilet!

- smoke Weed everywhere: no problem
- drink as much as you can, scream shoot : don’t worry they don’t care
- wear no masks, keep no distance and let us just all pretend there is no Corona? That’s great come in!

While the rest of the staff is doing a poor and ignorant job, the PR department is the true star of the park: in every newspaper you can read EP has a great concept!

Ridiculous they should lock this place down!!

Everything is outdated the queues are ridiculous, the food is cheap fried stuff (quality level of a bad gas station) and the prices are well above the quality they offer.

They do have a few good rides but this park lives in the past. The new pirate attraction is in every aspect centuries behind what Disney is doing while they brazenly copy the true Pirates ride.

The people in the park all seem to have adapted on this new management focus because money and profit is the only motivation. Very sad, the health and well being of people should be a major concern as well.

Mallorca Style Tourists and the same behavior!

Do yourself and your family something good and stay away!

Awfull experience! Even though one had to buy tickets in advance, the whole park was crowded. Waiting times for rides were at least one hour. Waiting times for food or beverages alway exceeded 30 minutes. All in all most of the time people were waiting. Virtual lines were booked out throughout the day all the time.
The crowds were steadily packed together, people rarely wearing masks and only sometimes reminded to wear them.

All in all very poor experience for 60€ per person. Would not recommend.

The park itself is very well built and beautiful to see. Although, the indications are poor and you can't notice clearly when you're passing through each zone. The app works very bad too, so you really can't rely on it to guide you through the park. Overall, I didn't like the park. Very confusing to know how to get to the attractions, at one point we decided just to walk forward in hope that we found what we wanted.
Also i'm more into thrill rides than familiar ones and shows and that's not what europa park is best at. Only 1 good roller-coaster. The good thing about this park was the shows that were really nice. If you have kid, it's for you. If you're alone and want to have fun, probably not for you.
