Europa Park Details 2019's Rulantica Water World Indoor Water Park + New Resort

Europa Park has been planning a new water park resort for some time now, but has recently announced additional details on the massive expansion project.  Named Rulantica Water World, the Nordic themed indoor water park will cover 350,000 square feet, with an additional 86,000 square foot outdoor play area.

Right next to the indoor water park will be Krønasår, a brand new "natural history museum" hotel.  The theme will be that of a museum celebrating the artifacts of the Adventure Club of Europe, tied to the adventures that can be found next door within Rulantica.  The hotel will have 277 guest room and 27 suites and is linked to the development by a bridge over a lagoon.

Here is a look at the development, with Rulantica Water World on the left and the Krønasår hotel on the right.  Europa Park does an excellent job with theming their rides and attractions, and I've no doubt that this expansion will look beautiful when it is complete.

This schematic shows off the total area that is going to be developed, which is set just a little off from the main Europa Park and the existing 5 hotels.  It gives a bit of a look at the layout of the indoor water park as well.  It is also easy to notice all the open space that is a part of the expansion, who knows what will eventually be added in those areas.

Giving more details of the additions that are planned, this infographic highlights different aspects of Rulantica.  There will be 25 attractions within the water park area, with ones meant for all ages of visitors.  There will be eight distinctly Nordic themed sections to the water park, including a kids area named Troll Valley.  There will also be a "relaxing mystery river," the largest wave pool in the area, and a total of 17 water slides.

Of course along with all the attractions there will be several restaurants spread throughout the water park and the hotel, along with retail locations.  The park will offer shuttle service to Europa Park from the Rulantica area as well.  Construction has already started on the project, so stay tuned for updates.
