Germany’s largest amusement park officially celebrated the reopening of the Scandinavian themed area this morning in the presence of around 200 international journalists and guests of honour. For the owner family Mack and thousands of loyal fans of Europa-Park, the return of the idyllic village with its colourful wooden houses evokes strong emotion. Since 1992, the Nordic peninsula has fascinated visitors not only with its distinctive architecture, but also with its lovely attractions and its authentic culinary offering. In May of last year, a fire destroyed large parts of the themed area.
Roland Mack comments: “Scandinavia was and still is at home in the heart of Europa-Park, with many unique memories. It has been a great desire for us to rebuild this unique place as soon as possible. For more than 350,000 hours, at times more than 100 construction workers were busy day and night making the impossible possible. Despite many other construction projects, today, after just 13 months of construction, to be able to celebrate this memorable event means a lot to us.”
