Tips and Tricks for Europa Park:

We would highly suggest downloading the Europa Park app. In the app, you can find the map of the Park and it’s super helpful in navigating from one theme to another. There’s no additional cost for the Virtual line. You can also use the app to book your virtual line for different rides.

There are 6 main rides that are on the fast track. We have added our tickets to the app and we were able to book the time slot with the app.

If you are more than one person and want to book the ride at the same time - Then, It’s highly recommended to add the ticket to one phone app in this way you will be able to book the same time slot for all the people. If you are booking it with two different mobiles, you might get different time slots even if you book at the same time.
