History of the amusement park

The Europa-Park amusement park was opened on 12 July 1975 by the family of Franz Mack and his son Roland Mack in Rust, Baden-Württemberg, southwest Germany. The idea to open the amusement park was born during their trip to the USA three years earlier. In its first year of operation, 250,000 guests visited the park, and by 1978 the number of visitors had already exceeded one million. The park was expanded year on year, with new theme zones, attractions, roller coasters and carousels. In 1995, the first hotel was built in Europa-Park. In 2019, the Rulantica water park was opened and the entire park has grown to almost 100 hectares in size. Further expansion is planned.
Europa-Park is the largest theme park in Germany and one of the largest in Europe. In 2022, more than 6 million guests visited the park.
