Europa-Park is one of the most popular destinations in Germany


T


he German Tourist Board (DZT) has identified the most popular attractions in Germany in an online survey of more than 13,000 travellers from over 50 countries, with Germany’s largest amusement park, Europa-Park taking 2nd place. Even before Neuschwanstein Castle, the Europa-Park in the former fishing village of Rust is one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in Germany among foreign tourists. The result of the ninth online survey of the


100 most popular attractions, which was determined by the German Tourist Board between 14 November 2019 and 31 July 2020, is clear: more than 13,000 guests from over 50 countries voted to put Europa-Park in second place, and for the second year running. With more than 100 attractions and shows as well as 15 European themed areas, six park- owned 4-star adventure hotels and the new

indoor water world Rulantica, Europa-Park was visited by 5.7 million people last year. Recently, it presented an innovative VR “world first” with the yuLLBE attraction. “We are very proud that the Europa-Park is still appreciated by our international visitors as one of the most popular short-term destinations in Europe, even in the current period with many travel restrictions,” said Roland Mack, owner of Europa-Park. Among the top 100, visitors to Germany


were chosen for famous buildings, historic places, natural landscapes, sports facilities and amusement parks, as well as events. The ranking of the online survey is published online under www.germany.travel/top100. Petra Hedorfer, chairman of the Board

of Directors of DZT said: “With this popular survey, we are gaining an authentic mood picture for ourselves and our partners in German tourism, as to which destinations are particularly well-known and in demand.”





Creative Works brings immersive attractions to Washington DC FEC


Party HQ, a new FEC in Bowie, Maryland has installed a D.C. battle- themed Hologate Arena virtual reality system, supplied by attractions provider Creative Works. Party HQ, which opened earlier


this month, is located about 12 miles northeast of Washington D.C. “We are branding ourselves the hometown family entertainment centre. We are born and raised right here in Maryland,” said Party HQ owner Rodney Chambers. Chambers became familiar with


Creative Works and its products during the Amusement 360 event back in July 2019. Through education and networking, the event provided Chambers with the knowledge he needed to facilitate the creation of Party HQ. For the laser tag, Chambers and


Party HQ wanted a theme that you wouldn’t be able to find anywhere else. They decided on a custom “Urban Battle for D.C.” theme. “I wanted to really capture the essence of


10


Washington D.C.” said Chambers. The arena includes custom props


for the theme, including White House and Washington Monument props, and a Pentagon platform in the middle of the arena. Another unique aspect of the arena is the bases, which are interactive metro trains, one blue and one red. Party HQ also wanted plenty of


interactive elements in the arena to challenge players and add to the immersive environment. The highlight of the arena is said to be a large Air Force One prop that hangs from the ceiling and has interactive targets. Players are able to shoot their


phasers at the lights on the prop, allowing them to earn more points while providing a challenge outside of the normal player versus player laser tag battles. In addition to laser tag and


Hologate, Party HQ aso has bowling, about 50 arcade games, and a restaurant and bar called “The Parent Trap”.
