This is fantastic - completely did not see this coming. It's so comprehensive, bits of the ride voiceovers are there and all sorts :) Imagine if they release the majority of the audio for most of their rides this way? :)

Do they really need that lighthouse for the hotel? Can't they use it as housing for enthusiasts? :P

Hey guys... :D

I think this OFFICIAL (!) onride of Wodan shows very good the speed Wodan is currently travellig at !

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5wvbx8p ... ture=g-u-u

Those of you who rode it in the beginning of April will probably see how much faster it alreay got. My impression is that it`s STILL getting faster...

Don`t want to hype...it just that Wodan got somehow "wild" and more and more people are now REALLY happy with it, including me.

I am still not expecting anything near as crazy as Troy, but at least it is improving.

I still think it is perfect for Europa, though.

Hey guys...

Believe me when I say that EVERYONE of my buddies says that it improved a lot...the difference is huge, believe me.

But no...not as wild as Troy (...which has become extremely rough AFAIK).

It was indeed far better when I rode it 1 month ago, and it looks like it's getting even better. :-)

From EP-Fans.

The park seem to be building a new, grander park entrance in Spain for Bell Rock guests, and presumably Colosseo guests as well:

Image

The Atlantica diving board for summer has been installed:

Image

Image

New WODAN photopoint:

Image

Beautiful old Mack wagon, restored and put on park:

Image

Image

Image

And I don't know what this is, something to do with lane control?

Yes,  the water was only off at the start of the season due to that temporary bar inside the Wodan ride area.

I'm surprised that nobody mentionned this here :

Rustis.de wrote:
We are the „Rusits“!

We, which are Helena, Antje, Eric and Carlos, are living together in the little city of Rust in the south of Germany. We met at work and quickly found out that we share the same love for music. As we have been spending every free minute together writing songs, we decided to move in together in a very hip, shared flat.

On one of our parties we started playing music together and the guests were thrilled. After that evening it was clear to us that we had to start a band! The same as with every other band we had to look for a name first. In our case we wanted to make sure we added in the coincidence of all of us meeting in Rust after being from so many different places in the world. This is how the „Rustis“ were born.

Recently we have made great progress. The hard work and ongoing rehearsals have paid off. We got the very unique opportunity to sing some parts of the new summer hit „Bienvenido“ from Marquess. We were even allowed to participate in the new video clip, which was extremely exciting! Through the performance we now hope get further opportunities to play at concerts and that we maybe even can record our own album very soon.


More info on http://www.rustis.de/index_en.html

It reminds me something, but I can hardly say what! It looks like a big joke, and I'm sure it is :D

EPFans uploaded this video yesterday of Europa Park in tilt shift mode. It doesn't show the entire park unfortunately but lovely nonetheless.

An interesting and informative article has appeared in regional newspaper, Badishe Zeitung, about the gardens and landscaping around the new hotel, which opens in just over a month:

Indian Summer under the Bell Rock Lighthouse

Flaming Autumn: The North American Indian Summer is the inspiration for the grounds of the new Europa-Park Hotel Bell Rock. For gardening master Jürgen Kappel Sedler, it is a challenge.

Does anyone have an idea of the current state of Wodan's queueline? Last i'd heard (via Pedro in this thread) was that it'd gone downhill somewhat pretty quickly :(

It's fine.

I watched a queueline video walkthrough taken two or three weeks ago.


This is Europa-Park. Have some faith!
