Before the end of 2019, Rulantica – the new Europa-Park Water World – will be built outside the gates of the world’s best theme park. The sixth themed hotel, ‘Krønasår’, will form a crucial part of the resort extension. This hotel is a special kind of natural history museum and can accommodate up to 1,300 overnight guests. After an eventful day in the impressive Water World of Rulantica from spring 2019, the new themed hotel offers guests of all ages a stylish accommodation with Nordic flair. The restaurant ‘Bubba Svens’, designed in the style of an old boathouse, offers a wide range of options while the fine dining restaurant ‘Tre Krønen’ serves delicious food. The ‘Café Konditori’ and the ‘Bar Erikssøn’ complete the culinary offers in the seven storey hotel.
Emotion beats technology, even in the future! This was the conclusion of high-ranking international representatives of the theme park industry at the TEA (Themed Entertainment Association) conference at the beginning of May in Europa-Park. Theme parks will therefore see an increased use of VR and projection technology as well as digitisation in the future. However, the feelings associated with each visit remain the most significant factor. ‘People love contact with each other,’ was a keynote from the experts. ‘Technology is simply a tool.’
In June it is sporty in Germany's largest theme park: together with the start of the World Cup presents the Europa-park numerous sport activities of "Germany moves" on the beauty pageant WM to live reports from the Championship. After all the sports guests can happen from the end of the month on Friday relax during the "After Park Lounge".
Second major project with French star director Luc Besson
Europa-Park and star director Luc Besson are once again joining forces following ARTHUR ‒ In the Minimoys Kingdom. Over the course of the extensive renovations to the French themed area, the upcoming virtual reality experience on Eurosat Coastiality will be playing Besson's space blockbuster ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’. In order to make this special riding pleasure possible, a separate station with track switches is being integrated into the dark rollercoaster for the first time. Thus, from summer 2018, with the classic Eurosat ‒ CanCan Coaster and the innovative VR ride, there will be two attractions within one ride, using the same route ‒ a world first.
