June 2019 Rulantica Update
Friday 7th June 2019
Work is continuing at Europa Park to get Rulantica ready for it's official opening November 28th, 2019. Featuring 25 thrilling attractions and a poolside bar, the water park is the biggest investment into the Europa Park portfolio ever seen.
On 27th May 2019 the park officially opened the hotel Krønasår which sits opposite Rulantica, with the hotel fully open it allowed us to get a much closer look at some of the construction currently taking place. Due to the size and nature of the Rulantica project different aspects of the waterpark are taking shape daily. During our stay teams were hard at work installing sound systems whilst others were working on other areas of the waterpark.
Although nothing can be seen within the inside of the water park, when taking the shuttle bus too and from hotel Krønasår you get a quick glance inside the large glass fronted building. On different occasions we spotted the slide construction and internal theming starting to appear with Scandinavian styled trees being placed within the complex.
The main entrance to Rulantica is also taking shape where an impressive water feature has been installed.The entrance to Rulantica for hotel guests will be exclusively via the link bridge directly connected to hotel Krønasår, with normal day guests entering via the main entrance below.
With just 173 days to go, there's still a lot of work to be done before the water park opens to the public. But we can’t wait to see how the final finished project will look!
Vildstrøm in Rulantica Testing
Thursday 6th June 2019
It’s may still be 173 days until Rulantica officially opens at Europa Park, but new milestones are being achieved by the day.
The waterparks outdoor thrilling white water river called Vildstrøm, had its first test with water yesterday. The outdoor rapids look to be very similar to what we have in the uk at Centre Parks, With a long and complex layout of tight turns and fast corners guaranteed to provide some fast paced action. Although the new expansion doesn't open until 28th November this year, the park has started testing certain elements. This testing process is likely to be one of many, to ensure that guests receive the best experience when visiting Rulantica.

Rulantica Water Park Construction Continues
Monday 22nd October 2018
Work on the new waterpark called Rulantica and the new 276 room hotel Kronasar is well underway at Europa Park in Germany. Opening in 2019 the hotel is now available to pre-book with the waterpark opening later in the year.
The large beams that line the roof of the waterpark have been installed and it would now appear work is turning to waterproof the building. Towards the right-hand side of the building, a metal structure has started to be installed which will soon become the end wall and enclose the building.
Placed to the side of the construction site, slides of various shapes, colour and sizes can be seen ready to install over the next few months. Other basic items look to have been started to be installed, in a few of the photos air-con and lights can already be seen installed.
One thing that shocked us is the sheer scale of the hotel and waterpark until you see it in person or compare it to a small object you don’t realise how big the waterpark and hotel will be. We look forward to seeing the project all completed next year!
