Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

At the german homepage Europa park writes that you can directly enter the park with the printed tickets.
The printed tickets have a barcode that is scanned at the entrance, so it is not necessary to change the tickets into cards.

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

When you buy the tickets online you don't have to wait at the cash desk.
Europa park does not offer a fast pass.

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

In Germany people with disabilities get a handicapped ID from the german health care system.

I would assume that this is similar to the card you have from the council but i don't know it for sure.
I would write EP an other email and explain what kind of card you have and ask if this is sufficient.

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

@gforcejoe The best way to find out what EP can offer in your case is to write EP an email. EP has no exit pass, but guests with disabilities can use the exit when they are allowed to use the attraction. They don't have to wait in the normal queue. The normal height and age restrictions are also val...

Re: Europa-Park: Trip Planning, Questions and Advice!

When you want to travel by train to Europa-Park then you should also look at the site of the german railway

http://www.bahn.de/i/view/GBR/en/index.shtml

Type your starting station e.g. Strasbourg and the ending station Europa-Park.
There you get all connections and all the details.

Is this throughput number correct ?
If it is correct it is very disappointing.

Re: Europa-Park 2013: Family Rollercoaster

Before the announcement of Wodan EP planed for 2012 a second extension to the enchanted forest. This extension will not be build in 2012, so my guess is that they will build it in 2013. I have also heard a rumour that EP ist not satisfied with the first extension to the enchanted forest. So maybe th...

Re: Europa-Park 2013: Family Rollercoaster

This project seems to be delayed to 2014.

There was an article in the local newspaper ("badische zeitung") where Roland Mack told that this ride will open 2014. He also said, that they want to build a second Park with a water theme (waterpark?) in the 2016/2017 period.

Re: Europa-Park 2012: "Wodan" GCI Woodie + General Discussion

When i look at that video then the train leaves the lifthill at second 22 and stopps in the break at second 56. So the runtime is 34 seconds which is FASTER than in other videos (42-45 seconds).

Re: Holiday Park 2014: Major new coaster

I don't think that they will build a wodden rollercoaster.
The nearest two Parks ( Europa and Tripsdrill ) have one.

Re: Europa-Park 2012: "Wodan" GCI Woodie + General Discussion

It is rumoured that Wodan's top speed at the moment is 115 km/h.  :D
When the weather will get better in Rust it will go even faster ( 5 to 10 percent).  :shock:

So Wodan might be faster than Colossus at HeidePark.

Re: Klotten 2012: ABC log flume

That's going to look awful if it stays as it is. They really do need to install the theming, otherwise it's going to look like it's themed to a great big slap of concrete. A theme park needs theming! It is a small park and theming costs a lot of money. For example even the log flume at Europa-Park ...
