Do you like to visit amusement parks that take you to a world full of incredible adventures and adrenaline rushes? In the following lines, we have compiled a list of the 5 best theme parks in Europe, so you can get the inspiration you need for a great trip to Europe:
Disneyland Paris – France. We just had to include the Disneyland in Paris on our list of European parks, given that this is where all the children’s favorite fairy tales come alive. It is actually a complex made up of two parks, Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios Park.
In Disneyland Park, fairy tales are spread across five counties, full of Disney characters and various attractions, street parades and shows. And if you’re keen to fill your adrenaline rush, we suggest you take a tour of the park’s two famous roller coasters, Big Thunder Mountain (a train ride around a haunted mountain) and Star Wars Hyperspace Mountain (a roller coaster). with thematic space.
Tickets in Disneyland vary according to time of year, with an average tourist season of 69 euros for adults and 62 euros for children.
PortAventura, Salou, Spain. PortAventura is one of the most iconic amusement parks in Europe and the most visited theme park in Spain, with around 4 million visitors annually. It is located near Barcelona, in the town of Salou and has 6 worlds waiting to be discovered. These are China, the Far West, Polynesia, the Mediterranean, Mexico and SésamoAventura.
Here you’ll find everything from the tallest and fastest roller coaster on the Old Continent (Furius Baco, reaching 135 km / h in just 3 seconds) to unique shows, tropical islands with waterfalls and pirate and maze boats, mayan labyrinths, full of unique visual effects.
Tickets cost around 55 euros for adults if you book online and include both the PortAventura entrance and entry to Ferrari Land, another great theme park.
Europa Park, Rust, Germany. There are plenty of amusement parks in Germany, but Europa Park is by far the most popular, being the largest in the whole country.
Located in Rust, a town in southwestern Germany, Europa Park covers an area of 950,000 square meters and hosts 100 attractions, of which 13 are coastal roller coasters. What makes it special, however, are the 15 European themed areas, which present countries like Iceland and Austria, with architecture, landscapes and specific gastronomy.
Also worth noting are the restaurants within the park. In fact, Europa Park is the only amusement park in the world that hosts a Michelin-starred restaurant!
On summer days, ticket prices for the park start at 44.50 Euro. However, if you buy them online, tickets may cost less.
Gardaland, Castelnuovo del Garda, Italy. Located in Castelnuovo del Garda in northeastern Italy, Gardaland is not only a simple theme park, but also a truly impressive aquarium! The Sea Life Aquarium guard allows you to venture into the deep blue of a transparent ocean tunnel, looking around and especially above you, sharks, sea cats and other creatures of the depths of the oceans and seas.
The park is full of attractions for all ages, so here is something interesting for the whole family. Some of the attractions we recommend are the Blue Tornado, Shaman and Mammut roller coaster.
If you only want to visit the amusement park, you will have to pay around 38 euros, and if you want a combined ticket, which will allow you to enter both Gardaland Park and the aquarium, you will have to pay around 44 euros.
Phantasialand, Brühl, Germany. Located in Brühl, between Cologne and Bonn, Phantasialand is another fantastic park in Germany, attracting over 1.75 million visitors annually. It is famous for the amazing shows that take place here, but especially for the roller coasters it hosts, such as TARON, one of the fastest coastline rollers in the world, or RAIK, a Boomerang roller coaster.
