  • Great rides for all ages, plenty of places to eat and plenty of places to shop.....something for every age! Dr. Seuss land is great for the younger children and Hulk roller coaster is great for thrill...  read more »

  • The Europa Park in rust is accustomed to such as we, it is initially even slightly disappointed. In relation, the Park is very small, even to much more expensive and also two railways had closed during our visit. There are also hardly "thrill"-coasters, for more family-friendly attractions. The water attractions to wet, definitely on the bone no matter how to turn it on, you should expect when entering. A great show was offered in the temple. If you take a Refillcup (14 USD), that's enough for two people and you can get to drink throughout the day (just a refill in 10 minutes possible). The Cup you can reactivate the next day for 6 USD and he has a handle so you can well carry it or hang it somewhere. The food in the Park is very expensive, the Burger was good (better than McDonalds in Germany). Overall, we had a great day in the Park. Alone the visit for the fabulous Harry Potter was worth world!

  • I don't know if they improved the Spider-Man ride but it was much easier to hear the characters and the screen was in sync with the action. The King Kong ride was disappointing. It's incredibly short. It also ends really abruptly. The best part was the creepy shaman and chanting natives in one of the rooms in the line. It's great to be able to take the Harry Potter themed train between the two parks.
  • While it is unfair to compare anywhere to Disney, it doesn't feel quite as magical. For me, that key difference lies in the primary apparatus of the rides. At Universal, most rides are essentially roller coasters moving you along a bunch of mini theaters showing a mini story version of whatever the theme is. So it feels like a very special very wonderful collection of moving movie tickets. But there is something missing in how few tangible attractions there are within many rides
  • No doubt a wonderful place but above all the staff is awesome. They are efficient helpful and very hospitable. One of my friend vomited while on a ride and soaked all the clothes, the staff offered new clothes for free and a medical help. They even called and inquire about his health 2-3 hours later to see if everything was alright. Thumbs up for the management.
  • I absolutely love this place! When we visit Florida I will choose this place over Disney World (and I love Disney) every time! The rides are awesome and the environment is exciting. The sites and sounds are engaging and hard to just pass by. I already loved this place before Harry Potter, and now with it it's even more amazing! LOVE Harry Potter World! It feels like you're inside the books/movies, it's all so wonderfully detailed and realistic! The last time we went it was pouring for about 3 hours. They close the outdoor rides when it rains, so try to pick a day that is predicted to be nice weather!
  • Overpriced EVERYTHING. Long lines. No Shade. Gift shops gift shops and more freaking gift shops! There's a couple cool coasters and some of the rides are not bad. But overall pretty much a giant waste of money like the rest of these silly parks.
