A couple of weeks ago, I visited Europa Park for this season's winter event: "Winterzauber 2017/2018". Stayed in the Bell Rock Hotel and had an absolutely fantastic time, with all rides and attractions being open bar the log flume, Poseidon, Atlantica super splash, fjord river rafting, eurosat and Universe of Energy. It was great to see the park decorated for Winter and it looked absolutely beautiful at night, although it was also lovely to experience the park during the day time and enjoy the theming of each of the lands, particularly Ireland which I set foot into for the first time. We also got to enjoy the many special additions for the park's winter season such as Big wheel Bellevue(which looks stunning at night), magic ice, snow tobogganing, luna magica, winter starlight parade and the globe theatre Christmas musical as well as many more. We had an absolutely amazing time and I would highly recommend a trip to this park during winter(and also a stay in the bell rock hotel!).

Wow. Europa Park is how you run a park! Extended openings till 7 when the longest queue is like 20 minutes, throughputs meaning your queue barely stops moving, rides hidden all over the place and so m

Did someone say epic interaction?

Europa-Park is a multi day resort with absolutely LOADS to do. I would suggest starting with Matterhorn Blitz, as it's the lowest throughput coaster on park (about 960pph). However, if it's not school

EP have officially announced the transformation of Old 99 into...

 

‘Jim Button - Journey Through Morrowland’

 

The retheme was already known but it’s nice to receive a logo and an overhead plan of the attraction. EP are surely the best at rejuvenating old attractions when it’s not really necessary - Old 99 did look a bit tatty however.

 

(Also +100 for choosing an IP promoting inclusivity and racial equality!)

I thought this news (or just the acquisition of the IP)  was known for quite some time but it was clearly just rumours until now. 

 

Also worth noting that a Jim Knopf film will be released this year - increasing the relevance of this retheme. 

 

Anyhow, 3 rethemes in the France area is very impressive, it’s just a shame they didn’t put this investment into the awful English area.

Absolutely love the new additions and attentive care the Macks put into Europa each year, whether that’s a cute update to one of their family rides or tweaking shops or eateries.

 

Europa definitely have a can can do attitude.

 

Speaking of which, the art work looks great, although I will very much miss the original space theme too.

I love how the park do little things like this to keep the park looking good even in some of the more meh areas.

Can Can Eurosat worries me a little bit- but I'm gonna keep faith as this is Europa. I'm expecting good theming and overall a more modern and smoother version of the ride.

The Jim Button ride looks lovely with some decent theming.

 

It looks completely unrecognisable from the Old Circus theme, which was perhaps becoming dated. 

 

Great to see Europa injecting do much love there. I just hope Can Can Coaster gives justice to what Eurosat once was.

I hope it doesn't damage the Scandinavia area too badly as it easily one of the more beautiful looking areas.

I guess if it in Pirates in Batavia/The Netherlands then not too much was lost.. Easily the most expendable area..

Might help it get a refurb sooner rather......

Lets hope another fire breaks out in Universe of Energy...
