From 28th September to 3rd November 2019, horror fans will get their money´s worth as Germany´s largest theme park becomes haunted once again. Clacking skeletons, sinister figures and demonic ghosts of the night roam among the impressive autumn scenery will fascinate visitors young and old. The attractions, the parade, the show programme and the gastronomy are also adapting to the scary-yet-beautiful season. Particularly fearless visitors over the age of 16 can enter a world after the apocalypse when visiting the 'Horror Nights − Traumatica' from 25th September to 2nd November.
Spooky Halloween Fun at Europa-Park
The terrifying time of vampires and ghouls doesn´t stop at Europa-Park. Over 180,000 pumpkins in different shades of orange, as well as 15,000 chrysanthemums, 6,000 corn plants and 3,000 bales of straw transform the 15 European themed areas into an eerily beautiful setting. The mood gets even more frightening with thick cobwebs, scary witches and ghastly ghouls.
In addition to the gruesome decorations, there are numerous other highlights and truly terrible horror experiences at Europa-Park. The little ones can look forward to the 'Spooky Kids Village' in the Swiss themed area: Colourful make-up and plastic spiders transform the children into little vampires, witches and sinister pirates. In the children´s scary labyrinth 'Spooky Steps', little ghosts and cheeky grinning pumpkins await mini horror fans. The 'Koffiekopjes' in Holland become the 'Griezelkopjes' with fog, lightning and spooky music. The ghosts don´t disappear once visitors reach the English themed area either: In 'Bloody Mary´s Mansion', live performers provide real moments of terror during the day for everyone over the age of 10 years. For enthusiastic Halloween fans, the ice show 'Celtic Shadows' in the Greek themed area is just the thing. Thirsty vampires and dancing skeletons create a gloomy mood. Moreover, the new show 'The Ghost Fair' on the Italian open-air stage entices and in 'Grimm´s Enchanted Forest' invites adults and children alike to go on a search for the pumpkin pixies. During the daily 'Halloween Parade' at 5.30pm, sinister figures fill the streets and squares of Europa-Park. Those who do not pay attention may find themselves frightened to the bones. At the end of the parade on the Luxembourg Square, the song 'Tonite it´s Halloween' produced by MackMusic conjures up dark forces and ghosts from the underworld.
