Europapark has a habit to copy Disney. The coaster that looks like spaceship earth from outside is good. Their Pirates in Batavia (not much different from Disney, just with a lower budget) is also good. Their Universe of Energy copy must be the most stupid Disney copy ever. Seems people dont like the Disney original very much based on rateings here in the first place. Well i do. Some genius Europapark decided to do a small Dinosaur dark ride and call it "Universum der Energie", without any pre film or dark ride elements that explains any connection between energy and Dinosaurs.
Tips, hum, dont know. Lots of good rides, good realistic themeing, nice park area with a small real cheatau, old trees and a river. No very outstanding or unique rides/shows. Just lots of good ones. The country themeing is much more realistic than at epcot. No plastic, no mix of the most extreme tourist stareotypes, rather real buildings. The park area seems very relevant. They got the load coasters on one side and the garden area with the cheatau at the opposite end. Its my fathers favourite theme park, ahead of Disneyland or those other major European parks other parks, which were not that much smaller back when we visited Europapark, they only started to get taht much ahead over the last 15 years. I think that has a lot to do with the park/river/cheatau area.
