That's a great photo--thanks! I wonder how the "Can Can" theme is going to work on this ride--maybe VR? Projections?

What an imaginative concept for a dark ride! The illustrations remind me of great old fables in classic children's books.

I give Europa Park credit for reworking "Universum der Energie" with such a cute theme in a way that I'd imagine will cost little to accomplish while making it more interesting and approachable for the younger guests.

Europa-Park renews attraction from 1977

020318knap1.jpg


A 41 year old attraction in Europa-Park will be refurbished this winter. The German amusement park renews the Old 99 Circus Parade tour, which opened in 1977. The ride will get a new theme which is based on the popular German children's book Jim Knopf und Lukas der Lokomotivführer.

At the end of March, a cinema film of the same name will be premiered in Germany. The children's attraction with locomotives will be named Jim Knopf - Reise durch Lummerland. The ride, built by Mack Rides, is being modernized. In addition, there will be multiple interactive elements during the ride.

This year, more attractions in the French themed area will be renovated. The indoor rollercoaster Eurosat and the darkride Universe der Energie will get a make-over. Europa-Park will open its doors on Saturday 24 March.

^Sounds like a good idea. The Circus Parade was a bit, well, creepy.
