Europa Park is the second most popular theme park in Europe behind Disneyland Paris, and the largest park in Germany. Situated in Rust, it features more attractions than can possibly seen in a single day and multi-day visits are recommended. The park is owned by attraction manufacturer Mack Rides, which uses it as a showcase for its latest creations. This means that a number of innovative attractions feature in its line-up, such as unique spinning roller coaster Euro-Mir and impressive water coaster Poseidon. It is also home a wide variety of other thrill rides and children's attractions, which are spread across areas themed around European countries.

History: Mack Rides first opened Europa Park in 1975, aiming to show off its newest ride models. As its roster of attractions has grown over the proceeding decades, the park has developed into a multi-day destination resort, and boasts five hotels and dozens of restaurants. Occasionally, Mack has allowed other manufacturers to encroach on its territory, adding the Bolliger & Mabillard hypercoaster Silver Star in 2002 and Great Coasters International's wooden creation Wodan: Timbur Coaster in 2012.
