Well, some things are necessary, while others aren`t... ;)

Besides...there`ll be a huge roll-over-Europa-Park this Saturday plus some barbecue later at the tipi dorf AND having a huge and cold Weizen at the Mille Miglia (Colosseo-Bar) in the night-time.

Anybody else from TPR gonna join us ? And what about you, Kooky ?

Europa Park has sent us a press release about their two latest additions to the park.

Europa-Park – Germany’s splashiest theme park

Ship ahoy! In 2010, it’s getting wet at Europa-Park! The new family attraction “Whale Adventures – Splash Tours” invites young and old to go on an exciting expedition towards Iceland. But those who prefer staying on the mainland will also have plenty of things to discover in Germany’s biggest theme park: on an area of 85 hectares, more than 100 attractions and international shows as well as 13 European themed areas with their typical architecture, vegetation and food specialities await all adventurous Europa-Park visitors.

Ship ahoy!

An exciting trip through the seas around the volcanic island Iceland awaits Europa-Park visitors from 27 March 2010. With the new family attraction „Whale Adventures – Splash Tours“, young and old will encounter some splashy fun! From a distance already, a colourful lighthouse indicates the way to the volcanic island Iceland, where seagulls announce the forthcoming appearance of the sea giants. Now, just recruit your crew and sail away! In colourful fishing boats, the adventurous expedition begins and the sailors get ready for action. Each boat is equipped with eight water cannons which invite them to start a splashy water battle with the other sea adventurers. But caution is advised, because the audience ashore can join in the splashy action!

GAZPROM theme world – the wonder of energy

Another highlight of the new season is the cooperation of Europa-Park with the worldwide energy group GAZPROM and, consequently, the new GAZPROM theme world. This brand new construction is located next to “blue fire Megacoaster" and takes the visitors on an intrepid voyage of adventure from Russia to Germany – going through Siberia and the Baltic sea. The queue leading to “blue fire Meagcoaster” goes through the “GAZPROM theme world - the wonder of energy”. With all senses, the guests can experience how energy is generated, transported and used. The offer is attractive for young and old and leads the guests through the fascinating world of energy with plenty of games and fun. For example, the visitors will discover an interactive photo-station with Russian motifs, a giant table football and a video game with an exciting race through a pipeline.

To reach this world of fun and adventure as fast as possible, the visitors also need the adequate conveyance. That’s why guests of Europa-Park will be able to head directly for the Icelandic themed area with the new “Monorail”. On their way to the island of fire and ice, the passengers will travel above the rapids of the “Fjord Rafting”, through the Portuguese themed area and next to the new water attraction “Whale Adventures – Splash Tours”, before reaching the beautifully themed station in Iceland.

From Italy to Iceland & from Spain to Scandinavia

But the rest of Europa(-Park) is also full of surprises! Adventurous visitors can discover 13 European themed areas with their typical architecture, vegetation and food specialities. In Greece for example, a racy ride between sky and see awaits the guests in the water attraction “Poseidon”, while the youngest visitors may go for their first experience on a roller coaster in the YoungSTAR Coaster “Pegasus”. In Russia, audacious passengers will go for a trip to the stars with “Euro-Mir” and France proposes a high-speed ride reaching 130 km/h and a very special adrenalin kick on “Silver Star”. Some refreshing and splashy fun awaits the visitors in the “Fjord Rafting" in Scandinavia or in the setting of the water attraction “Atlantica SuperSplash” with its impressive Portuguese sailing ship.

All those who would like to take things at a slower pace should watch the brand new show programme: in the Spanish Arena, a fearless fight rages on for "King Arthur's Sword", while the ice-show in Greece stays true to its new motto “Pure Ice”. And the youngest visitors are invited to a special birthday party in Italy with Euromaus & friends!

For all hungry adventurers, each one of the 13 countries proposes plenty of delicacies to please the visitors’ palates. Typical Greek gyros, Scandinavian fish specialities or Spanish tapas - Europa-Park has everything a gourmet could dream of! This year in the Italian themed area, the Pizzeria “Venezia” has been entirely renovated and shines in new splendour. The restaurant can now host up to 600 pizza & pasta lovers in a typical Italian ambience. Hungry guests will also find relief in Portugal thanks to the new "Casa Atlantica” which will be opened by the start of season 2010.

35 years Europa-Park – let’s celebrate!

Happy Birthday Europa-Park! In the season 2010, Germany's biggest theme park celebrates its 35th birthday. This is one more good reason to propose numerous extraordinary and breathtaking events to the visitors. More than 300 events and specials are organised this year. For example, typical themed festivals will take the guests, among other countries, to Russia, Iceland and Italy. During the South African Weeks, culinary delights from the Cape of Good Hope await all gourmets from 31 July to 15 August. This year's party-highlights will be the SWR3 Party-Night on 10 April, the big Birthday Week from 12 to 18 July as well as the Birthday Party with midnight-opening on 31 July.

Moreover, each season proposes varied offers and decorations throughout the year in Europa-Park. Spring is the time of novelties, while summer proposes some adventurous refreshment with numerous splashy attractions and summer highlights. In autumn, Germany’s biggest theme park becomes a privileged meeting point for all scary figures and offers numerous Halloween-specials like the Halloween Festival with the spectacular show “DJ BoBo´s Fantasy goes Halloween” or the Terenzi Horror Nights. In winter, the time of the magic moments begins and Europa-Park turns into a magnificent winter wonder world with thousands of decorated Christmas trees, scintillating Christmas lights, a charming Christmas market and plenty of exclusive winter attractions.
Dreamy moments

As the ultimate ending to an exciting day, the Europa-Park Hotel Resort promises blissful moments in a Mediterranean atmosphere. In the 4-star superior hotels “Colosseo” and “Santa Isabel” as well as the 4-star themed hotels “Castillo Alcazar” and “El Andaluz”, guests will not only appreciate the inviting beds, but also Italian dolce vita, Spanish temperament or monastic Portuguese charm. And outdoor types will love the Camp Resort with its Native American tents, log cabins and chuck wagons along with a camp site right next to the main entrance.

Does the wonder of energy include Ellen or Jamie Lee Curtis? If not then it's an epic fail.

Joking aside Europa Park seems to always put in great looking additions so this should be nice.

New Trim`s on Silver Star !

Europa`s B&M Hyper "Silver Star" got electrical ("eddy current") brakes/trims instead of those mechanical one`s during the off season. Rumors say that this might make the operation during the winter-time possible...

While I didn`t test it myself yet, some reports from the german forums say that the ride just got smoother while others said that Silver Star has increased airtime now...but all the reports were positive !!!

I think this is some good news...
