Rulantica water world launches at Europa-Park

Nine themed settings and 25 unique water attractions, including 17 slides, are spread across a 32,600sq m (107,000sq ft) hall at the newly opened Rulantica water park at Europa-Park in Germany.

The Nordic-themed attraction has taken 26 months to build and includes a four-star themed hotel, the Krønasår.

Settings include 'Trølldal', a fun water playground for kids, and the family attraction ‘Snorri's Saga’, which has a cute six-armed octopus Snorri, a Lazy River, and water tubes for lone riders and pairs.

‘Lumåfals’ features enchanting creatures that live in a colourful grotto and move gracefully over both land and water. The ‘Surf Fjørd’ wave pool includes a large waterfall, and next door is a self-service restaurant called ‘Lumålunda’, selling fresh pizzas, pastas and salads.

The ‘Skip Strand’ adventure pool has a sunken three-mast vessel, steamboat and variety of nets, ropes and masts, as well as slides, and the ‘Hoppablad’ obstacle course allows water-lovers to test their skills and drift around on wobbly, floating debris. The whole family can shoot down the wide slide ‘Överstor’ and land in the cool water.

The frosty north and a mystical ice palace await visitors in ‘Vinterhal’, while the town of ‘Rangnakor’ is built on stilts at a height of four metres. ‘Komfort Hyddas’ cabins offer up to four guests a perfect view of the indoor water world, while smaller ‘Komfort Sofas’ cater for two.

Europa-Park said waterfalls and bubble loungers make the ‘Skog Lagoon’ a genuine oasis, surrounded by pine trees and cliffs, while visitors to the ‘Skogbar’ can enjoy a cocktail in the middle of the green landscape while still relaxing in 30-degree water.

An 8,000sq m (26,000sq ft) outdoor area includes a heated pool with a swim-up bar, and a further outdoor area called ‘Vildstrøm’ features rapids with a heated riverbed, that forks left and right, one direction sloping more steeply than the other.

Additional food and beverage options include the elevated ‘Skål Bar’, and the self-service restaurant ‘Snekkjas’, which provides hearty snacks, salads and sweet delicacies.
