Swiss Activities Tip
If you want to share Europapark with less people, it is recommended to visit during the week. Also the weather has an influence on the number of visitors. If the sky is slightly overcast and rainy and if some people decide to change their plans, you may hardly have to queue at the rides and attractions. With the right clothes, a day at Europapark is fun even with some cloud cover.
A tip for parents with small children: use the "Baby-Switch" service here. If your children are still too small for one attraction, but both still want to ride, this service allows you to ride the roller coasters separately without having to wait twice. You will receive a pass so that first one and then immediately the second can ride without waiting.
