Day three @europa_park has begun!
Great advice from @europa_park!
It is a fresh crepe kind of morning here @europa_park!
Time for the ice skating show!
Wow!!! The @europa_park ice show was just FANTASTIC! No spoilers, but DON'T MISS IT!!!
Day three of @europa_park means day three of Raclette!
Who can guess what park we are at now?
Just a few more Poffertjies before we have to leave @europa_park!
The station for Blue Fire @europa_park! Talk about some seriously fast operations!
Europa Park sure does love their giant balls!
Blue Fire @europa_park really is a kick-ass amazing ride! Had to ride it a few more times today!
The Haunted House @europa_park includes some creepy and funny characters! Very Disney-like in its style.
Always really liked the look of this airplane ride!
There is a shout out to @quassyamusement in the lobby of @europa_park Hotel Bell Rock!
You can almost see Garbles & Sarah in the front seat!
Ending our 3-day visit to @europa_park with a last ride on Euro-Mir!
Had a great 3-day visit to one of my top 3 parks in the world! @europa_park! See you again in about 15 months!
EDIT: So Europa asked us "Is there anything we an do better?" and even the most perfect resort probably has a few things that you may think "I wonder why they do this?" or "I'm a little surprised by...." and while there really are not many things I can think of, these are a couple of questions/comments since they asked:
1. No "Virtual Queue" option. I get that Europa Park prides themselves on capacity and their queues are some of the fastest I've ever stood in with some of the best operations, but having said that, just about everyone in our group would have been willing to spend 50EUR each to not have to wait 35 minutes for Blue Fire or Silver Star every time they wanted to ride. And the reality is they probably would be out spending money on some of the amazing food while they wait!
2. Speaking of food - The park has some of the best food items we have ever had at the park: Raclette, fresh Crepes, Poffertjies, Gelato, Burrata, Waffles on a Stick, the list goes on and on... and as much as we loved the food, we felt the wait times at many of the food stands took quite a while. Now would we rather wait for freshly made crepes, Raclette right off the grill over pre-made warmed up items? Absolutely! But there were a few times where it seems a bit long.
3. Beverages at more food stands - There were quite a few times we were looking for a "Bottle of soda or water" and found many snack stands that did not sell any drinks at all. A fridge stocked with water, coke, coke zero, sprite, even just a small handful of options would have been nice.
None of these things detracted from our visit at all, and we had to really stop and *think* about things we would say needed improvement or we would question, so that speaks volumes for the park. I hate writing anything even remotely negative about one of my favorite places in the world because I understand that it's impossible to be "perfect" in every way possible, but when someone asks, I'll at least respond with a couple of things, because saying "Oh, no, there is nothing at all you can do to improve" also wouldn't be totally honest.
