Don't forget Jardin d'Acclamation is revamping the whole park into a Steampunk theme complete with new rides including some more thrilling for older folks.

There's also Phantasialand a few hours away embracing steampunk with Rookburgh next year.

And from across the pond, Megapark in Quebec is also doing a steampunk overall. :b

Nice! Two great places, loved them both. Puy du Fou has a bunch of amazing shows- I felt 2 days are requiered, as well as seeing La Cinéscénie, but you'd have to book like 6 months prior.
Also, try to ride the mecanical elephant at Les Machines... ;)

Don't forget, they're also enhancing their Universe of Energy knock off just after Disney got rid of the original.

Hey guys, I'm currently studying in the north of Italy and was thinking of going to Europa Park. I have other parks to visit and not much time as some close in the end of October. I saw EP is open also in November and December but my question is if it is common for the park to close some rides in that time of the year because if it is perhaps I'll try to go there sooner.
Thanks

^ You can see the opened attractions during winter on the official park homepage: http://www.europapark.de/en/attractions/all-attractions
Attractions that are closed during winter have a small text "closed during winter" below them. You can also select to only display attractions that are opened during winter at the top, though I guess you are probably interested in what is closed. Although Blue Fire is also mentioned to stay closed during winter I think it will open on some days if temperatures are high enough. Don't quote me on that though :P

Eurosat is closing on November 5th for the renovation so if you want to ride it you should get there this month.

If you're willing to travel a few extra hours north Phantasialand has pretty much all rides except River Quest and Wakobato open during the winter season (Chiapas only closes if temperatures drop below zero degrees Celsius).

I am looking forward to Phantasialand in the Winter as they have great seasonal food and the park is all decorated and so beautiful. You really do not want to leave . To stay on topic, Europa does a great job too. The water rides are down, but I think I did Blue Fire in December, so it is not down for the Christmas season .
