Europa-Park has reopened to the public following a large fire at the park on Monday (June 19).

According to reports, the fire broke out in a control room for an attraction in the Spanish area of the park, with around 25,000 people evacuated at the time.

The fire’s cause is still under investigation and is thought to have been the result of a technical defect.


dpa says that 450 firefighters, police and emergency personnel rushed to the scene, with two firefighters lightly injured but no guests harmed.

“We are very grateful that yesterday's fire was quickly brought under control and that Europa-Park was able to reopen today,” said the park in a statement.


Michael Mack, managing director of Europa-Park, added via social media: “I am so incredibly grateful that no one was hurt and I am proud of our team and all the helpers who did an incredible job in the last few hours!”

This the second major fire to break out in recent years, following a 2018 blaze that destroyed a historic ride - Pirates in Batavia - and consumed a large chunk of the park's Scandinavia and Norway-themed areas. Pirates in Batavia reopened in 2020 following two years of construction.
