Pirates in Batavia ride, replacing the former version that was destroyed in a 2018 fire.Germany's Europa Park today opened its new
The eight-minute indoor boat ride features more than 80 animatronic figures, including eight from the original attraction. The story follows Bartholomeus van Robbemond, who is looking for a magical map to help his search for the Fire Tiger, a magical dagger. But his ship has wrecked in a storm, and now he's in a chase with rival Diablo Cortez through Indonesia.
Of course, it didn't take long for the POV videos to hit YouTube:
"We are very happy to be able to celebrate this memorable event today," Europa Park owner Roland Mack said. "The fire and the loss of the unique attraction had torn a deep hole in our hearts. It is all the more wonderful that the 'Pirates in Batavia' are back at Europa-Park - now even bigger, more beautiful and more exciting."
