    Why does Holiday Park in Germany only have 2 creds?
    • It attracts over 1 million visitors annually.
    • It has one of the highest ranking coasters in the world.
    • Its owned by Plopsa so the potential for investment is there.
    • It has the infrastructure to be a big park.
    • It removed the wild mouse coaster after only 6 years of operation.
    Is it a kids park?
    Is it a thrill park?
    Is it really :emoji_poop:?
    Was Expedition G force an accident?
    Who knows.

    To me it seems like it wants to be a big park but then it just bumbles along for 15 years doing nothing, then it decides to add a decent cred then it just bumbles along again.

    Anyone know what the deal is?

    The mouse was poor, so it's a good thing they've removed that. As for the park, I liked it, but it is indeed weird there are only two coasters in there. I don't think they are particularly lacking in any other department, though.

    Sky Scream was fairly recent and seems like decent enough coaster, so they haven't stood completely still the last few years. Plopsa have provided a fair bit of investment, improving theming and other aspects. It does seem like a bit of an awkward park though, possibly due to GeForce being such a major coaster and the rest of the park not living up the hype provided by the ride. It is a small park, so maybe there isn't much space for any new major investments? I guess its just not one of Plopsa's main priorities at the moment.

    Well, Studios 100 did install Heidi: The Ride at PDP. I have a feeling that HP will get more in the upcoming future.

    Ive been to Europa numerous times and have never felt the need to go to Holiday Park (despite GF) because it just looks like a crap park and I’d rather be in Europa...

    I went last year during those few weeks Geforce was spiting and still had a decent day. I loved Sky Scream, it definitely felt like a headline coaster for a park of that size with Geforce closed but a few more coasters than just one would have been nice. The Intamin drop tower and Sky Fly are quality flats, the sex and torture dungeon dark ride is hilariously dark and weird and the water rides are solid. We left at about 3:00 having also watched the water sport show and felt it had been an above average theme park day. If you're at Europa and have hired a car it's certainly worth adding Holiday Park on.

    It's a strange park - it feels like there's absolutely :emoji_zipper_mouth: all there apart from GeForce and Sky Scream? It just has an absolutely dead atmosphere, but isn't actively bad?

    This, but I went before the Sky Fly... Didn't care as I was only there for the +2 and whoring EGF at night.
