The largest theme park in Germany


Europa-Park is the largest theme park in Germany, and the second most popular theme park in Europe, after Disneyland Paris. The park is home to 13 roller coasters, the oldest, which opened in 1984, is the Alpenexpress Enzian, which is a powered coaster that speeds through a diamond mine. Europa-Park has very high capacity roller coasters and attractions, meaning the park can accommodate approximately 60,000 guests per day.

Europa-Park is run by the Mack family, which has produced vehicles since 1780, circus wagons since 1880, and roller coasters since 1921. It was named "Europa-Park" after Breisach's nearby Europaweiher, a small artificial lake which commemorates a historical pilot poll held in Breisach in 1950. It offers about a dozen different shows, including figure skating, variety shows, and Flamenco, as well as a puppet theater and junior club studios. The theme park offers a mixture of rides, themed areas and parks. One of the main attractions is the roller coaster ‘Silver Star’ constructed in cooperation with Mercedes-Benz. ‘Silver Star’ was the fastest roller coaster until the beginning of 2006 and, until 2012, it was also the highest one in Europe. The roller coaster ‘Euro-Mir’ has rotatable gondolas, so the ride is temporarily backwards. The ride in ‘Eurosat’ takes place in a big sphere which is designed with special effects that create a space-like atmosphere.

Visit this famous theme park and have a lifetime memories.
