My husband and I recently visited Europa Park. We seek out amusement parks and I can not tell you enough how awesome we thought this park was. And even more awesome was the staff! The park is laid out a lot like Disney's Epcot with different countries to go through. Each having their own personal flare of personality and adventures. The park also had a few other Disney similarities in there such as some of the rides and attractions. And how ironic is their mascot...A Mouse! But Europa Park also has it's own magic with a lot of German twists and fun. You can not come to Germany and miss out on a day or two of this park. So here are my thoughts on this review of the park...
First the park: I have one word to describe it...WOW! So many different displays, rides, attractions and restaurants. Our favorite restaurant was the Food Loop and our favorite ride (really hard to pick) Voletarium. We love to seek out amusement parks. This was so clean and well maintained. They have the lines going steadily too. I recommend going 2 days to see everything but we only had 1 day. So here are a few tips if you can only go 1 day. Download the app before hand!!! Get familiarized with the park layout and read reviews so you have an idea of what is there. Pick out the top things you want to do and map them out on the app. All the rest will be bonus things. This way you won't feel disappointed you missed out on anything. The app will also give you wait times and directions when you get there to adjust your schedule. Secondly, use the single rider lines when possible. It will save you a lot of time if you don't have a fast pass. Take time to enjoy the scenery. There is so many details!
Secondly the staff: We were left in a sticky situation without international phone service (which we had paid for) in a country we'd never been to before, trying to enjoy our stay. We missed our check in time for our next hotel by accident and had no way to contact anyone or look for another hotel. We honestly didn't know what to do! So at the mercy of their employees we told them what had happened and they stayed late to help us to find another hotel after hours so we wouldn't have to sleep in the car. I will forever be so grateful to them for this kindness!!! Also the staff throughout the park was willing to help when asked. There are members walking around just to help direct their customers and information booths set up throughout the park. They have it down!
If we ever make it back to Germany, this will again be a stop on our list of things to do. We have put this park up to the top of our favorites list and can't wait to come back and play at Europa Park!
