Europa-Park is the largest theme park in Germany, and the second most popular theme park resort in Europe, following Disneyland Paris.
Europa-Park is located in Rust, in south-western Germany, between Freiburg and Strasbourg, France.
The park is home to 13 roller coasters, the oldest being Alpenexpress Enzian, a powered coaster that speeds through a diamond mine, and the newest coaster being the Ba-a-a Express, a small kiddie roller coaster. Europa-Park has very high capacity roller coasters and attractions meaning the park can accommodate up approximately 60,000 guests per day. It counted 5.7 million visitors in 2017.
It is also the location of the Euro Dance Festival.
In November 2019, Europa-Park’s Rulantica water park will open, in addition to a new themed hotel “Krønasår” in May 2019. There will be 25 water attractions, including 17 water slides. Other attractions include a wave pool, a surf simulator (probably on a static wave) and a wild river. There is an indoor part of 32 600 sqm and an outdoor part of 8 000 sqm.
