Which rides have maximum height requirements? I'm going with a friend who is very tall (202 cm), and I was wondering if there were restrictions on any of the rides. I checked the website, which doesn't specify any, but it says some rides may have it. Does anyone know? Thanks in advance.
There's not a single ride with shoulder restraints, so that's good. But I would advice you to keep your hands inside the ride vehicle, as clearance envelopes at Europa-Park aren't that big, especially on Euro-MIR you can easily touch the nets in the tunnels.

edit: Europa-Park's website only mentions a maximum height (of 1,95m) for one ride... Euro-MIR:

Awesome! I look forward to going... With the new wooden coaster opening this year, I think it is fair to say that EP has one of the finest and most exclusive roller coaster collections in the world!

New pictures appeared who show two details that I`m VERRRRY happy about :p
Airtimehill 1.JPG
Something unexpected (at least unexpected for me) happened here : On top of the first airtime hill the ride will be "twisteeee"...yesss

Airtimehill 2.JPG
See ? It topples to the left on top of that hill...and this could be quite intense regarding the fact that this hill has a total height of 15 meters...while the drop before will have a height og about 35 meters...so the train will "fly" over that hill at some speed !!!

Einfahrt 2. Tunnel.JPG
There`s the other "surprise . STRONG (!) banking before diving into the second tunnel. From the model it looked quite like straight strack there...but I guess the layout will be more "complex" that the model showed !

^^Unexpected intensity! This is going to kick some serious A$$ :b .
You're right, the model appears to be much lamer than the actual track...

GCI's latest pictures on their facebook page show the aforementioned, super intense second dive from another interesting angle.

The more I see of this ride the more excited I get about visiting the park again! This has to be one of the sexiest woodies there is!

Wow, very exciting pictures. According to the article, Wodan won't be open to public before the 30th of April. This seems to be a delay, since the park previously announced March 31st as opening date, no?
