New Europa Park Can-Can Coaster Will Take Guests Back to Paris Belle Epoque !

For its 2018 season, Europa Park, Germany's largest theme park will show its dedication to its beloved neighbour, France. After extensive modernisation, visitors to Europa-Park can look forward to a redesigned French themed area. With a fresh look, new attractions, and new gastronomic offerings, the park's French area will be the highlight of the coming season.

Starting this summer, guests will discover the redesigned Eurosat – CanCan Coaster, including another Coastiality experience. The entrance zone around the landmark of the French themed area had a new coat of paint during the course of the renovation: Traditional Parisian architecture, with a faithful replica of Paris famous Moulin Rouge theatre invites visitors to the belle époque of the capital. The attractive redesign takes visitors back to the 19th century and invites all to get in the mood for the Eurosat – CanCan Coaster, a special kind of night rollercoaster journey.

Guests will stroll through a waiting area full of the intricate Parisian decorations of the Moulin Rouge theatre, before embarking on the carriages of the Eurosat CanCan coaster for a nights journey through the City of Light. The genuine true-to-life replica at Europa-Park honors the tradition of the Moulin Rouge, a landmark of Parisian nightlife that has shone on the hill of Montmartre since the 19th century.

Europa-Park has made extensive structural changes to the French themed area and the refurbishment work has primarily focused on the 45-metre high dark rollercoaster, Eurosat. The tracks, alongside all technical aspects and theming, have been completely renewed. Passengers of the new Eurosat – CanCan Coaster created by Mack Rides will travel in newer, larger and more comfortable cars offering a significantly improved riding experience.

In addition to the redesign, visitors will also be able to look forward to an additional virtual reality experience from MackMedia. To make the innovative riding experience of Eurosat Coastiality possible, a separate station with track switches and its own carriages will be integrated for the first time worldwide. This means there will be two attractions in one ride.

The track layout will be inspired by the original design of the futuristic silver ball and will stay around 900 meters long.

Another novelty is the world of Madame Freudenreich's Curiosités which showcases in a typical half-timbered style and replaces the previous attraction Universe of Energy. In addition to the entrance area to the redesigned coaster, visitors of all ages can look forward to various scenarios in the House of the Great Dinosaur Fans and discover plenty of relics from the giants of the past. After this adventure, the floating bistro boat ‘Liberté’ on the lake invites visitors to relax and revitalise on either of its two floors, but also to watch a spectacular water fountain show which is displayed several times per hour accompanied by traditional French music.

Also, from the start of the season, the new face of the former attraction Old 99 will thrill all as Michael Ende's Jim Button ‒ Journey through Morrowland. Also new is the arrival of the beloved bear Paddington to the English themed area, whereas in Greece, an entire ice show will be dedicated to the cuddly children's book figure.
