Here visitors can board the children’s swingboat Dancing Dingie, ride the children’s rollercoaster Ba-a-a-Express, or take a trip on a tractor at Old Mac Donald’s Tractor Fun. There are many new attractions for the whole family to explore in this fairytale oasis. The large, covered play area Limerick Castle also guarantees memorable adventures at any time of the year, while the new gastronomic offering The O’Mackay’s Cafe and Pub, the new shop Shamrock Gifts and Treats, and a new show are sure to entice visitors.

Allow yourself to become enchanted by our new shows and specials throughout the Winter Season. The spectacular MAGIC ICE Exhibition in the Spanish Arena is sure to take you on a magical journey through time with 30 hand-made ice sculptures depicting the history of Europa-Park. In the Mercedes-Benz Hall, the new Janosch exhibition is a delight for all ages, inviting you to discover works new and old by the beloved children’s artist. Also, why not pay a visit to Edda’s Castle Show at the Limerick Castle and take in the new ice show, Surpr’Ice, with Santa Claus’ son.
