Europa Park was the best park of the trip. Best food and best hotel, too. I loved the place and would go there again in a heartbeat.

As for spontaneous "emo" pictures, hmm, I seem to recall having some from years' past . . .

I loved Europa.

Poseidon was a suprise hit for me. I absolutely loved that ride. The level of theming in the queue and the first part was completely unexpected.

While the park does not have anything completely stellar in the coaster department (except for Euromir which is so unique nothing can come close to it). They are all good. Combine with the level of detail they theme each and every ride. This park is a winner in my book.


Where were they clearing land?

Can I park my donkey here?

I think the land we saw being cleared was a road being re-routed to make room for the new coaster (rather than land being cleared for the coaster itself). But you could see this from the top of Atlantica Supersplash, if you looked off to the side before going down the drop.

So perhaps the new coaster will go in Scandinavia land?

Thanks for the teaser poster! Looks great (looks like Intamin track... mmm, I'm drooling already...) Iceland would definitely be a great theme for a new area of the park.

^ It does look like Intamin track, but the new coaster will be a prototype Mack ride. Looking forward to it!

^^If it is like that picture it must be a Vekoma smashing you face first into ice like that!!! ;) ;)

But on regular note Europa looks awesome and that coaster teaser looks pretty sexy!
