The Best Amusement Park in the World is in a Town Called Rust

A European-themed amusement park you may never have heard of before has nabbed the title of world’s best amusement park away from household names like Disney and Universal Studios.

For the 2018 edition of the Golden Ticket Awards, which honours the best players in the amusement industry, Europa-Park in Germany claimed the title of world’s best amusement park by readers of Amusement Today.

Along with thrill rides and attractions, Europa-Park features original live productions and boasts another unique claim the park is the only one in the world to be home to a two Michelin-starred eatery Ammolite – The Lighthouse Restaurant.

Located between the Black Forest and the Vosges in Rust, Germany, the park attracts 5.6 million visitors a year.

Through its ‘confertainment’ programme, the park tries to position itself as a venue for conferences and professional conventions.

New additions this year include the reworked 148-foot-high CanCan Coaster, which harkens the Moulin Rouge in Paris, the arrival of Paddington Bear to the British-themed area and new virtual reality experiences.

Europa-Park has 15 European-themed areas and five themed hotels, done in the style of Roman architecture, a Portuguese monastery, a Spanish finca, and a medieval Spanish castle. The newest addition will be a museum-themed hotel, Krønasår.

So if you’re over Disneyland and can’t stand another visit to Universal Studios, pay a visit to Rust. It’ll give you a taste of Europe in one little town.
