My giddy god. I just noticed that! I think somebody (not EP) has shopped that because on the EP site, the image is correct.

The version in this thread is probably an earlier version of the same image, if you look at this pic of dragon khan from RCDB:

...you can see the same trees (though they have been flipped left to right). They've obviously been lazy and just rotated the colours rather than recolour the ride. They're still present in the final image, and have been left pink.

The annual pass allows now a free visit of Phantasialand. And the Phantasialand annual pass for Europa too. :D

In addition, owners of Europa-Park's annual ticket can also visit the leisure parks Phantasialand (D), Efteling (NL), Liseberg (S), Port Aventura (ES) and Isla Magica (ES) once for free in 2010. Annual tickets are available in the Information Office next to the main entrance.
Greetings!

Phantasialand!? I thought Phantasialand hated Europa-Park! This is GREAT news and will definitely make me buy it in October 2010.

EDIT----

You can now view the preliminary 2010 teaser for EP here. Sticking to the same format as 2008 and 2009, it adds on a bit of promo stuff for 2010 at the start and also some new clips of Blue Fire nearer the end together with the rest of the park in classic Dein Moment fashion!

I'm thinking that this is a promotional move from PL to get more people into their park, especially with all the changes they're making.

Whale Adventures: Splash Tours
Monorail Bahn
GazProm Adventure Hall
Construction Update 24.1.10


The station building for the new attraction is now clearly visible in the Icelandic area of the park. In addition, the new Monorail station in the area is also visible and is awaiting its roof. The GazProm Adventure Hall - from where Blue Fire will now be accessible - is also having the top floor completed. Further images of all construction is expected tomorrow, but here's what we have today:

Some of the building work looks quite considerable - large scale buildings are going to make the area very different come March 27th!

:D

Its also confirmed, that there will be a suprise attraction somewhere in the middle of the park, probably at the pyramid where the monorail starts or somewhere there...

It will be contain something about the park and the history of it.

The Macks said this on the winter fanday 2009/2010.

You can see a major update from EP on EPFans.

The buildings they are putting up for the Splash Battle and Monorail are pretty damn huge!

Well this is all looking rather good, thanks for the updates Dan. :D

I'm sure like most recent additions to Europa Park, this will be amazing and will 'out stand' in its category of ride. The concept images look really good and knowing Europa, the real thing will be pretty much bang on what we expect if not better!

As for the happenigs out side of the actual theme park make we even more hungry to go back for some more Mack whoring. :D The addition to the hotel/resort area looks fantastic although I can't imagine how they could improve on the current available facilities and hotels. Should be great. I love seeing a theme park do so well. I hope they keep up the massive amount of additions they do each year. Well done Europa Park!
:D

2010 Park Map available in Interactive format on the EP Website.

No major changes, but the changes for 2010 are all there together with what looks like a nice water feature outside the GazProm Adventure Hall in Iceland.

Wow i would love to go to Europa!

I love the way they are really investing in the park not on just big attraction but on the infrastructure as well if only Thorpe would spend some money on their infrastructure.
Wishing i was back in the Caribbean

Some News: Now it is clear, that surprise attraction will be in the pyramid. The Freiburger Newspaper said: "The pyramid will inspire the guests with new ideas."

And the Science house, that is located next to the Europapark will probably close after this season - so this season is the last chance to visit it (for inhabitants of the annual pass: free entry ;-) )

Thats it ;-)

That Science House always seemed pointless.

Was it always meant to be temporary?

It was not meant to be tempoary. The Science House is operated by an association, that has a cooperation contract with Europa-Park.

Unfortunately there where much fewer visitors than expected. In my opinion there are several reasons:
- The competition to Europa-Park is very strong. A visitor has usually a one day ticket for Europa-Park. If he wants to visit the science house too, he must buy a separate ticket, walk out of the park and looses some of the already payed park time. That's not very attractive.
- It would be much better if there where an direct entrance to the park. The Science House would seem more than a park attraction then (of course with extra entry fee). But then you get all the walk-in customers (the "wahhhhh, daddy I want to go there" customers). :D

And last but not least. The science house is not very big. There is a much better and bigger kind of such a museum not far away where I live: Technorama, Winterthur (Switzerland). There you can spent hours with more interesting experiments and there are no roller coasters in the neighborhood.

So maybe we will get a brand new park attraction at this place in a few years. :D

After reading this thread I've been inspired to visit Europa Park in late March - can't wait! It's good to see, despite the economic situation, a park that is clearly spending substantial sums on infrastructure. And all for only a couple of quid more than what Drayton Manor now ching for a day!
