    Amazing Theme Park
    I’ve been visiting Europa Park for over ten years now and it does just get better and better every visit. The theme park is immaculate, it’s got endless amounts of rides and attractions and so many different food and drink options. It’s also worth watching a show or two whilst on park and definitely visiting some of the smaller older rides as well as the new rides. Also if you get chance try and have a walk around the hotels and a drink in the bars as they really are amazing.

    Wonderful experience in maybe the best Park in Europe. A full visit all over Europe with a lots of options to get in countries life's such as eat. Well, for fun and animation, everybody can get a day due on, in average, 30 minutes waiting to get in.

    Excellent time at europa park!
    We purchased 2 day ticket and had 2 full days in the park from 9-6.30pm we went on every ride we wanted to, some 3x over. Despite being easter hols we only queued maximum 20mins for blue fire, woodan, euro mir and silver star. Amazingly clean, well kept landscape, great layout, friendly professional staff. Such a great selection of restaurants, fabulous rides of varying degrees of thrills for all ages and brilliant shows. Definitely recommend the secret show in Italy, funny library show in England (it's not English but that's what makes it even funnier!) And the Spanish horse show. Wet rides a must - just do them all in one go at the end of your visit or wear water proof clothing. Having been to Disneyland Paris I wouldn't go there again now I've been to europa park - I would definitely cone back here. Cheaper, better, less queues, better rides, great location.

    The best park in Europe!
    The best amusement park in Europe! Beautiful with all the different areas. So much to see and do. Clean and tidy, lots of benches, toilets and restaurant options and not crazy expensive. Rides and attractions for everyone and all ages. Reasonable waiting times even though the park was crowded and fully booked the day we went there. We will absolutely come back soon!!! The only downside is that all shows are in german or french not anything in english even though this is supposed to be a euoropean park.

    Good but not my favourite theme park
    We enjoyed our time at Europa Park but the queue times were very long. We only managed around 7 rides from opening to closing (and we didn't stop for food - ate out lunch in the queues). A big issue was teenagers queue jumping. It happened on almost every ride and there were no staff anywhere to keep an eye on this. Another thing we found was people smoking in queue rides - small spaces which had clear no smoking signs which were ignored. The rides were really good but would have liked to have gotten on more.

    Beats expectations!
    We visited a number of parks and from experience we are under the impression that Europe lags behind. With this mindset we visited the Europa park. Oh boy, how wrong we were! The park has a distinctive European flavor which gives a meaning to the various zones. Attractions are really top notch. The obvious issue of multilingualism is not a showstopper. We had fun aplenty, and walked away genuinely impressed. The whole thing is extremely well kept and still expanding - we will be back to try the new rollercoaster being built on the Croatian corner. The only suggestions for improvements is the food (remarkably homogeneous across the country islands) and the total lack of phone recharge facilities - we missed some great photo opportunities because of low battery ;)

    The best park of Europe
    Europa-Park is the best amusement park in Europe. The park is dedicated to all ages, so you can go there with your family and in addition you can bring your drinks and your bowls or your sandwiches without any problem. Games with different sensations are at your disposal. The car park is large and paid for with a single rate of €8 per day. I advise you to pay for parking at the barrier because there are too many people at the payment terminals at the exit of the park. The two payment terminals take coins or credit cards.

    I’m not a theme park enthusiast but…
    My 2 teenagers and husband love theme parks. I tag along and usually “hold the bags” but I must say Europa Park is the best we’ve visited. They did the 3 big coasters and I found plenty to do in between. The layout is beautifully kept and I love the very authentic country zones. We all enjoyed the water rides, Can can coaster, Swiss toboggan and Pegasus. The app is great for waiting times, none of which were excessive. I think I managed 11 attractions to my family’s 14 during the day. Not bad for someone who doesn’t like theme parks!

    school visit
    came here with a coach full of children on our school visit, loved the idea of countries and the train to each one as it made it much easier to find things and people! however my one criticism is that i did not see any water fountains for people to have a drink, it was 36 deg the day we went and it was spend spend spend.....people will still spend their money, but to offer free water to customers like they do in the towns locally would be amazing and a kind gesture considering how much you spend on a day there. Our poor pupils spent all their money on drinks as it was so hot on the day and nothing hardly on trying the foods of the world. great that theirs lockers for a Euro each but another problem is if you open it to get your lunch then you have to pay another euro to lock it again! money for nothing...... simple things but they are the important things

    A hidden gem! What a fantastic theme park!
    Best theme park we’ve been to (and we’ve done Disney in Florida!) very clean and a great range of rides to suit all tastes. The theming is good with different country areas. The longest queue we waited in was 40 mins which compared to Disney (1-2 hours for most) was fantastic! It never felt too busy in the park. The food was really well priced and good quality, again a breath of fresh air after Disney. I love that Europa park have the virtual queue system free and available for all, this works so well (how Disney used to be until they got too greedy and monetised it) We loved it and would recommend it!!

My favorite theme park ever, and I'm from California! So much love in the details, which complements the wide variety of rides. You have these megacoasters, lile Blue Fire and Silver Star, classic roller coasters lile Wodan, and lots of options for younger guests. Even if you don't like rides, there are a lot of shows that are fun to watch.

I always go during Halloween and winter season. Halloween is probably better for teenagers, because the "big" rides are open, and the haunted Geisterbahn & other events may be a little scary for little kids.

Winter is more family friendly, with beautiful lights and a Ferris wheel that lets you see the entire park light up. There are more shows for kids too, and the shows are less scary. Christmas musicals and songs.

My favorite ride is Blue Fire (sit in the front!), and at night in the winter is the absolute best! You can see the park and lights while you're plummeting to your doom, lol

Hotels are a bit pricy, but made in loving detail and the staff is always friendly. I like Kronasar, but Bell Rock and Andaluz are great as well. The breakfasts (and coffee) are fantastic!

I was really impressed. I haven't had one disappointing trip yet!

For anyone who has ever been to a Disney park, you will get a kick out of the blatant copying: a pirate ride, haunted mansion, even an Epcot ball!

We visited in late October, and the Halloween theming and fall decor were superb. That alone would have made a worthwhile day for me. But in addition to that, there were also many fun rides. I really enjoyed some of the more old fashioned family rides, such as the princess boat ride. The fairy tale section was also a wonderful surprise.

Fantastic ice show!
The Halloween ice show was simply out of this world! So much going on we had to watch it twice. Each character was so much fun. The funny clown who literally jumped off the stage and the very scary but fun vampire with the big hat who whipped everyone.
Engaging, fun and talented!

We had never heard of Europa Park, but a friend of ours is a big fan and goes often. We didn’t know what to expect but thought that we would give it a shot. So glad that we did! Very charming and a lot of fun! Several of the rides are similar to what you would find at Disney but were still quite enjoyable. We stayed at their Spain property nearby. It was a great hotel and allowed for easy access to the park. Lots of great dining options at the park and in the hotel. All in all, a lovely place to visit - definitely recommend a day or two there!
