Hey guys, thank you for the previous advice. Does anyone know how their rain policy is? Because I don’t have many options to got there and the weather forecast might not me too good. Do they usually close rides (specifically the coasters)?
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

It rained one time I was there and everything remained open, they did however close Euro-Mir for about 15 minutes because it started to absolutely pour down! But other than that everything was open :)

I emailed them directly about this before I went last year. All rides are apparently open during rain but taller rides like Silver Star and Euro Tower close during thunderstorms.

Thanks for the information. We’ll see how things go and hopefully the weather isn’t too bad.

I can't wait to see how it turns out! Europa Park always does an amazing job with theming.

It is definitely strange to see them pulling apart Eurosat. I'm curious to see how they work the rebuilt structure into the redesigned area where it will live. No matter what, Europa Park continues to appear to be one of the most beautiful European parks and it remains among the top of my list of places in Europe I need to get around to visiting at some point.

I think Europa actually is one of the most beautiful parks world wide, only to be topped by some Disney Parks(not Disney Paris, Europa beats that one) and maybe Busch Gardens. The beauty about Europa is that you want to chill there. The coaster line up is not really stunning, but you want to stay there and not leave, enjoy the food and the beauty.
