I'm still hoping for a duelling Big Dipper Dive coaster (capacity would be fine with 2 sides) but honestly, I'm unsure what else a duelling coaster at Europa would be.
Is there any info on the Adventure Land retheme? Interested because when I visited I thought that area of the park was dire.Although they do have enough projects in the works currently as it is: Croatia + duelling coasters, the Adventure Land retheme and Euromir renovation.
Drop towers are tall, though, and from what I can gather Europa Park faces a few obstacles with tall stuff, namely the local residents of Rust. Believe it or not, Britain isn't the only country cursed with NIMBY syndrome. Apparently they only got away with Silver Star because the town was a lot smaller back then, with much of the population dependent on EP for their employment.
Nowadays Rust is more like a proper town in it's own right, with more of the population living there for reasons other than the massive theme park on the doorstep which, naturally, brings with it more opposition to large, metal eyesores blighting the views.
Long story short - hypers, gigas, massive drop towers... nah, not happening. Would bet actual money on it.
Following the expansion behind Greece (Croatia/the new coasters) EP has hit their growth limit. Around and behind Rulantica they do have land however that'll be resort expansion. The actual park is almost full.Europa and the Mack family are basically in the pockets of the local GOV! and a good portion of the town either work at the park or in supporting industries like b&b's etc. Basically Europa have huge carte blanche with development luckily? - of course not absolutely everything - but they are in a lot better position than say Alton where the GOV always backs local residents first!
Also it needn't t be as tall as highlander etc - they already have the observation tower - so could put in a drop tower of a similar hight to that, and if they develop into the corner of the park where the Tramatica events are held -it's away from the residential area of RUST and near the parking lot and fields
another option is they'd do a mystery castle or Karnan and build something enclosed or semi-enclosed.
if they put in a drop tower on the side where Arthur is right next to houses..... yes, rightly people would kick up a fuss, but Europa is a big unit with vast expansion pad areas in surrounding lands.
Other than the project being delayed by the Batavia fire and then again by corona not really. Following a viral tweet last year accusing the park of racism with the area's depictions - this year some figures have been painted white and the Colonial Food Station sign changed to Adventure Food Station. However the retheme should be much more substantial. Michael Mack announced last year 2 new themed areas would be added. We know Croatia is coming and I think it would not be surprising if the other is the retheme. Just which country or will it be Africa combined with the Adventure Club of Europe story?Is there any info on the Adventure Land retheme? Interested because when I visited I thought that area of the park was dire.
I doubt thrill rides. If you look at Europa and recent history, the only thrilling investments were Wodan, Kolumbusjolle, and Blue Fire. All three are accessible to families in some way, with Wodan and Blue Fire both having height restrictions that are actually not too bad. Kolumbusjolle is a stetch, it really is a family flat ride.which 5 new rides are they getting?
i know maybe a windshear ride from zamperla and various thrill rides
Important Details;New details about the coaster! Now my German isn't the best but if translate is correct, we are talking about an advanced version of the Big Dipper.
