Europa-Park to open new water world Nov 28

Europa-Park’s Rulantica water world opens Nov 28.

The German theme park is set to open its new Rulantica water world on Nov 28. Would-be visitors will need to buy tickets in advance, as capacity is limited.

The new Rulantica resort at Europa-Park promises an exceptional aquatic experience, according to the German attraction, which is thinking big with this latest extension, spanning some 45 hectares.

The new aquatic world will be home to 25 water attractions offering all manner of thrills in nine themed zones. Note that the late November opening only applies to a first section.

Visitors will be treated to a Nordic theme with trolls, treehouses and more.

The Mack family, which founded and manages Europa-Park, invested some €180 million in this project, which will feature 17 water slides and a 32,600 square-meter indoor water world.

Theme zones include “Rangnakor,” a city on stilts – built by the Nordic natives of Rulantica, according to the legend-style backstory developed by the park.

]There will also be a giant ice cave zone called “Vinterhal,” as well as “Lumȧfals,” the land of waterfalls and mermaids. An outdoor zone will also be available to swim, splash and relax in fair weather.

On-site food options include a self-service restaurant, open all year round, as well as a café and a snack bar. Water lovers can also enjoy a drink in the “Skogbar” pool bar.
