Attractions
Since the park serves as a showcase for Mack, the vast majority of the rides, especially the major ones, are manufactured by Mack. There is so much to do at the park you really need two days to cover it all. Blue Fire, Mack's first launched coaster, brings a thrill factor to the park that had been missing. Wodan is a woodie that provides the typical fun GCI ride. Silver Star can run hot or cold, depending in the intensity of the trims. EuroMir and EuroSat are two additional one-of-a-kind coasters.

There are many dark rides throughout the park, including GeisterSchloss (Haunted Mansion), Abenteuer Atlantis (a shooting dark ride), Fluch der Kassandra (Mack Mad House), and Universuum der Energie. Try to hit up as many coasters as you can early in the day before the lines build.
Food
Practically every "country" within Europa offers at least one place to experience food that is native to that country. So it should be easy for you to find someplace you enjoy. However, you may find yourself stopping quite often to sample new fare.
Operating Season
The park's main season generally runs from early April to early November.
Established Seasonal events
Magic Moments runs from late November to early January with limited ride openings.
Access & Location
Directions by car, bus, or train can be found on the EuropaPark website:
http://www.europapark.de/lang-en/Home/Directions-Parking/c337.html
Nearby Lodging
Europa Park offers four top-notch, immersive hotels on-site (Hotel Colosseo, Hotal El Andaluz, Castillo Alcazar, and Santa Isabel Hoteel), as well as a camping resort. Hotel Colosseo has been voted one of the Top 10 hotels in all of Germany.
Virtual Queue Options
Not Available. Blue Fire does have a single-rider line, but it can sometimes be longer than the regular line. Please note that the park sometimes decides in the afternoon to extend the park's closing hours, so don't leave early without checking first.
Shows
Beyond the typical musical shows at the parks, try to catch the live Russian artisans as they work with wood, glass, and other materials.
