Uh, this is embarassing... so after triumphantly entering the discusion I actually looked at the prices - which I hadn't done before - and I'm actually gonna have to pass.
I thought I could easily afford to come since I'm relatively close, but I can't find any accommodation that comes out to less than 150€, and adding the cost of fuel and the parks themselves the total easily comes out at 400€ - and that's with 10 hours of driving to avoid motorways since those would add another 100€ or more.

I can't really justify such an expense for a 3 day trip, especially because I had crunched the numbers on another one and, even going solo, I can fly to Barcelona instead, spend a day around the city, the next two full days at Port Aventura, and go back to Barcelona airport fully rested on the 4th with less than 200 (150 if I find someone to tag along).

Sorry guys, I really didn't think this through enough and I didn't expect Europa Park and the hotels to be so expensive. At that price point the chance of finding a friend to split the fuel with is nil.

Everyone else have a nice trip though, and I guess now I'm gonna go open a thread for a Port Aventura trip 😅

No worries @Ned873 hope to see you at PA!
Will has also dropped out - this is looking to be a very intimate Live!
I'll still run it as planned for those attending. I've already got so many ideas for fun things to do - not going to let them go to waste.

Just a note that there are plenty of reasonably priced hotels around Europa. The one I linked to previously is coming up at £38 per person per night in a twin room

Yeah, but that's still like triple what it comes out at in Salou though, and it's contingent on finding someone to share the room with.
