“Europa-Park”

Visit the amusement Park “Europa-Park”

A few years ago, while living in Freiburg, I realized that not far from the city is the largest amusement Park “Europa-Park” (Europapark), and that we ought to visit it. The Park is located in rust, in the South of Germany. Largest he is 900.000 m? and is the second largest in Europe after Disneyland Paris. In the Park, in addition to numerous attractions, there are also hotels, restaurants, cafés, camping and even 4-D cinema.

The Park was divided into 16 parts, which, as already its name suggests, this Park is provided in the form of European countries: Italy, Holland, UK, France, Austria, Scandinavia, Switzerland, Spain, Germany, Russia, Greece, Portugal and Iceland. Accordingly, the rides carry the character of the country in which they are located, and restaurants offer ethnic cuisine.

Ride all the rides in one day — not physically possible. First, a lot of them, and secondly almost every one of them need to stand in line. The higher, steeper and more dangerous than the ride, the longer the queue. For example, to ride on Silver Star, which is clearly the main attraction, in the queue need to stand at least an hour!

Abandoned amusement parks

Outdated amusement parks dazzle with their beauty. In these desert areas, filled with mysticism and mystery, once rested adults and heard the laughter of children.

Amusement parks in the twentieth century has been a favorite place for a nice family vacation. However, as time goes on, in place of these parks came in other bright, technologically advanced, with new idols for children. “The old guard” was simply not able to compete with them. Many buildings were closed and demolished to make way for shopping centers, while others were abandoned because of debts. However, those that were left, that recall the days when there was fun for adults and children.

Ruined and abandoned parks are filled with special energy, they could be a great place for filming some Thriller. Walking on those mysterious places, I want to look into every corner, sit on each attraction, because here was once full whole life.

Disneyland

A huge Empire, created by Walt disney in the first half of the twentieth century, today includes, in addition to film and animation studios, a network of amusement parks in the United States and around the world, bearing the name “Disneyland”.

Thoughts on the construction of the entertainment Park for the entire family showed up at Disney for a long time, even before the Second World; playing with his kids, he dreamed of a place where they could entertain children and their parents, and the number of recreational opportunities would be much greater than they can be placed in the backyard.

Walt Disney visited many amusement parks around the world, eagerly soaking up ideas for your own Grand Park, noting the advantages and especially the disadvantages of the existing.

Originally, Disney planned to build Mickey mouse Park opposite his Studio in Berbente, California, but soon was forced to change their plans. In 1953 the specialists at Stanford University began to search the place for your future amusement Park near Los Angeles; the choice fell on the site area of more than a hundred acres near Anaheim.
