It's not a bar. There'll be a light in there aswell. As Sam said, suite comes to mind. There is a restaurant located somewhere in the lighthouse, although I am not sure where.

Some eye-watering nightly prices for the new suites. Bell Rock Suite - €500 plus standard room charge per night.

Quite normal for Europa's top suites. There are very few at this price, but you'd be suprised. There's a market for them - and having been on a tour of the hotels, the top end suites are absolutely palatial.

I should hope so. The top of that lighthouse looks to be incredible. Everything does to be honest, from the columns of the large white block to the sheer size of the whole project. I'm still in awe at how they manage to fund this and Wodan.

I guess the answer lies with the fact that

- No corporation is telling them what they can and cannot do.
- They have no shareholders.
- They re-invest massively into the park, because money isn't siphened off for some bank.
- They care about the park and are constantly willing to tweak and improve even minor details.

It's been slow going with photo updates lately, Europa-Park clearly avoiding giving too much away at the moment, so that the finished look is more impactful. However, Chris-Space have taken a few, showing the lift hill chain in place, amongst others:

Without sounding too negative, I really hope they are going to dirt wash or 'oldiefy' the red of the station as currently it looks like an american barn!

I wish Europa would build an indoor pool at some point, good as the weather gets in the region.

^ Yes please. I'd love it if the interior looked like that. Has a lovely Steampunk feel to it.

Also I don't recall seeing that ship on any of the plans before. That'll be a lovely addition if it's still going to be there.

I reckon that interior shot could be the lighthouse.

As for the ship, that is news to me, aswell! Would be awesome if it's included!

I don't see why they will make it look old. They don't tend to do that sort of thing, although I would assume that in time it will age anyway. Mind you when anything starts ageing they tend to repaint.

At least have something good to say about this project :P

:D

Glad to know the train(s) have safely made their way across the High Seas.

Cannot wait to see a shot of the train on the tracks, in full!

I wonder if that's the final colour scheme.

That car looks purple to me!

It looks like the top of the lift 'firewolves' are making an appearance!

Excellent news.

I promised myself not to look to much in this thread....

and know I have, I'm now to damn excited... these next few weeks are going to crawl by...

Also Astro, why is your reply title relating to the "I feel happy" thread? Just out of interest... I can't think how that could happen unless you intended it to
