Europa-Park is the most popular theme park in Germany, located in Rust, in the south-west of Germany between Freiburg and Strasbourg. The park is split into fifteen different areas, mostly named after European countries or regions. Europa-Park is run by the Mack family which have produced vehicles since 1780, circus wagons since 1880 and rollercoasters since 1921. The park was opened in 1975 to act as a showcase for many of their different ride models – for example, the Wild Mouse roller coaster. Today, the park is home to ten roller coasters, the oldest being the Alpenexpress Mine TrainĀ  and the newest coaster being Blue Fire which sees the trains navigate a short dark ride inside an Energy Research complex before being launched at 100kph through various twists, loops, tunnels and hills. Across the park, there are many shows performed on a daily basis, such as an Ice Show, a Gladiator Show, an Acrobatics Show in an Italianate Theatre and a fully re-created Globe Theatre, based on that of William Shakespeare. The Magic 4D Cinema also opens during the evening and shows current blockbusters…
