Rulantica beckons guests with many new adventures

In the heart of the border triangle region that lies between the Black Forest and the Vosges, a breathtaking water adventure world can be found. The gates of Rulantica have finally opened again on 3rd June 2021, and the whole family can look forward to fantastic innovations in the 32,600m² indoor area, as well as the 11,000m² outdoor area: With ‘Snorri Snorkling VR’, a unique experience in the world awaits all fans of the sweet Sixtopus, aged 12 years and up, as they head on a fantastic diving trip with the popular Rulantica character. While the youngsters are having fun, parents can relax in the exclusive 'Hyggedal' relaxation and sauna area. The open air themed area ‘Svalgurok', with ten slides and over 100 opportunities to play, is certain to get the kids’ hearts racing, while the lovingly-designed 'Snorri Strand' outside water playground ensures that the little ones are in a great mood, too. Additionally nearby, the ultimate VR sensation 'YULLBE' invites guests aged 12 and over to transcend time and space and immerse themselves in three new virtual experiences. Whether on land or on water, after an exciting day you can dream and relax away in the six park-owned adventure hotels and in the Europa-Park Camp Resort.

Expedition to the North

The Rulantica water world casts its spell over visitors from afar. Inside and outside, adventurers of all ages can discover a total of 12 themed settings based on the mysticism and beauty of Scandinavia. From exciting slides to a huge wave pool to a 250-metre-long lazy river and much more, 37 attractions guarantee fun for young and old. In 2021, visitors can look forward to plenty of new attractions: With 'Svalgurok', Germany's largest outdoor water playground can now be found in the outdoor area of Rulantica. The visual highlight of this newly-created themed setting is a 2.5 tonne moving snake head with various effects. Embedded in a spectacular scenery, ten slides guarantee unlimited water fun for the whole family: The 'Stormrok' funnel slide starts at the very top, letting water lovers disappear into it as it winds down in a circle. The double slide ‘Vågorrok' lets guests duel each other as they travel down and gain extra speed with short drops. The tube slide 'Slalomrok' is the right thing for everyone who likes it curvy, while landlubbers may find themselves unexpectedly cooled off by the huge 'tipping bucket’, as it’s only a matter of time before the bucket, filled with 2,500 litres of water, overflows. In addition to the 'Svalgurok' slide paradise, 'Snorri Strand’ also now awaits under the open sky. There are two mini slides, water hops and other fun options for the youngest of visitors. Both themed areas are open seasonally in the warmer months, where the Baden sun can be enjoyed on one of the more than 1,000 loungers around 'Svalgurok' and 'Snorri Beach'. The adjacent sandy beach provides that pure holiday feeling, with eight additional beach sofas and the beach islands offering summer comfort. The extensive outdoor offerings are rounded off by the 'Strandhus Svalgur' shop and the 'Strand Kök' food court, which offers everything the heart desires, from bowls to grilled specialties and sweet delicacies. At the new indoor attraction 'Snorri Snorkling VR' it’s time to put on the VR diving goggles and snorkel and dive. The innovation from MackNeXT and VR Coaster, which is unique in the world, allows curious adventurers from the age of 12 to accompany the lively Sixtopus on a virtual underwater experience and explore the depths of the seas around Rulantica. For all those who long for relaxation alongside adventure, the exclusive 'Hyggedal' relaxation and sauna area has been available since autumn. The wellness oasis with a Nordic ambience is located above the 'Lumålunda' restaurant and offers a wonderful view of the entire water world. On 1,000m² there are cosy loungers and two wooden saunas (nude areas), for guests aged 18 years and up, with a large outdoor terrace. Both 'Snorri Snorkling VR' and 'Hyggedal' are additional offers that can be booked online in addition to the day or evening ticket.

Spectacular innovation

Groundbreaking attractions are waiting to be experienced around the water world and Germany's largest theme park at the Europa-Park Resort.

The three new experiences 'Valerian', ‘ARTiality’ and ‘Moon to Mars’, created by MackNeXT and VR Coaster, provide plenty of variety.
