Europa-Park is Germany's largest theme park. Our engineers and technicians continuously control and check our attractions so that the safety, which is our highest priority, is guaranteed.
We would like to briefly inform you about the most important safety conditions. If you follow these rules, you will "for sure" experience an unforgettable and relaxing day in Europa-Park. Please pay attention to our park regulations as well.
Please pay attention to our list of forbidden items as well, which you are not permitted to bring to Europa-Park.
Additionally, signs in front of every attraction in the park indicate the type of ride and the limitations. This is so that you can familiarise yourself with the safety regulations onsite.
There is a minimum age and height for some of the attractions. In addition to this, there may also be a maximum height. Visitors that are taller than the maximum height cannot use these attractions. These safety regulations and restrictions are provided by the TÜV (German Safety Standards Authority) and must be strictly followed.
In front of every ride that requires a minimum height, you'll find a measuring stick with which you can check if you or your child match the required height.
Children under a specific age and/or height can visit some of our attractions only when accompanied by an adult. You can find which attractions these are on our attraction overview page, by applying the filter 'accompanied by an adult'.
Furthermore, you can insert the age and/or height of your child on the attraction overview page and view the results for all attractions that your child can use.
Please take care of your children, as they often easily underestimate potential dangers:
Please make sure that an adult always joins them on the ride.
Always put your children on the inside on circular rides.
Never let your children out of your sight.
Do not sit or lift your children over the barriers of rides, this is dangerous to life and limb!
For safety reasons, intoxicated persons cannot use any of our attractions. Furthermore, pregnant women and persons with heart, back and other health issues of this kind, also cannot use all of the attractions.
Unfortunately, people who are physically disabled cannot use all of the attractions. Please pay attention to the safety rules in the park. We have summarised all tips and information for a fantastic stay for guests with disabilities on our info page.
Using the attraction filter you can easily view online which attractions are suitable or not suitable for pregnant women. Unsuitable attractions are labeled as either 'forbidden' or 'not recommended' attractions. This additional information is displayed directly on the respective attraction details page.

We also advise you to contact your GP and discuss your stay before visiting Europa-Park.
The rollercoasters ARTHUR, blue fire Megacoaster, Eurosat - CanCan Coaster / Eurosat Coastiality, Silver Star and WODAN Timburcoaster are equipped with a safety bar system due to their high speed and acceleration forces. The degree of inclination of the bar is crucial for the bar closure, so the circumference of the hips and thighs is often decisive. Unfortunately, people with large thighs and/or body circumference cannot use these attractions.
Test seats are available for our guests at the beginning of the queuing area of those rides. Our staff will be happy to assist you with this.
Please note that pets and sticks as well as other large, pointed, or lose items cannot be taken onto the rides. Such items can endanger yourself as well as others. Filming and photography, with mobile phones or cameras of any kind are strictly prohibited on all major rides and faster merry-go-rounds. Head-mounted GoPros as well as cameras attached to selfie sticks or wristbands are also prohibited. Exceptions can be made for cameras mounted with a suitable chest strap. The decision whether a chest strap is suitable lies with the ride operators only. All lose items need to be stored away and must not be held in the rider's hand. Please follow the operators' instructions.
Europa-Park meets the legal and normative requirements for the safety of its rides. German building law and the international standard EN 13814 describe the safety-relevant requirements for the planning, construction, operation and testing of amusement rides. This also applies to periodic inspections by independent experts. The inspection intervals are between one and three years - depending on the size, complexity and dynamics of the ride. "Europa-Park places great importance on ensuring that the mandatory inspections are carried out on time," says Christian Falk, Head of the Leisure Industry Department at TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH. "That's why a team of TÜV SÜD experts from different disciplines is on duty at Europa-Park for several weeks every year before the start of the season."
For several weeks, TÜV experts conducted the safety tests, for example, of electric, hydraulic and pneumatic components. They tested, amongst other things, speed and brake action as well as the subjectively-experienced driving sensation, and conducted employee audits.
Please note that, due to technical reasons or weather conditions (e.g. during ice, snow, strong wind, unusual high or low temperatures), there may be further closures or changes on various attractions at short notice.
