The Best Amusement Parks In Europe

I’ve got a collaborative post for you this evening looking at the best amusement parks in Europe.

Amusement parks are a great holiday destination for families with kids and you’re sure to have a lot of fun there. First of all though you will need to choose which one to go to? We’ve prepared an overview of some of the most popular places so you can make an educated decision! The trip might be a little expensive, so don’t forget about checking for vouchers for hotels, transport, or even the necessities and luggage. You’re bound to save a lot on such items at Kohl’s, for instance. Before that why not take a look at this list of the best amusement parks in Europe, so that you can plan your next trip!

1. Disneyland Paris

The happiest place on Earth meets the city of romance and there is no better way to start this list. This amusement park sees over 10 million guests every year and is widely considered to be one of the world’s premier tourist destinations. While some may try to compare Disneyland Paris to its counterpart in California, the rides at this park are much larger and provide far more thrills to all of the adrenaline junkies out there!

2. Europa Park

For those who would like to visit a fun amusement park that does not come with the Disney name attached to it, Europa Park is the premier destination. No expenses are spared here, as the park is owned by Mack, the same company that is responsible for manufacturing the rides. The park’s staff are trained to enhance visitor enjoyment in any way possible and catering to families is a major aspect of their ethos.

3. Tivoli Gardens

Copenhagen visitors rave about all of the amenities that Tivoli Gardens has to offer to its guests.

A glimpse of Copenhagen

It is one of the world’s oldest amusement parks and guests are able to partake in all of its rich history. This is not a park for those who are in pursuit of the world’s tallest roller coasters, as most of the rides here are fairly tame. There are a variety of concert halls to be enjoyed and the park’s stately feel inspired none other than Walt Disney himself.

4. PortAventura

PortAventura doubles as a resort and a theme park. It is located in northern Spain and although it is situated in an industrial area, PortAventura offers visitors a chance to enjoy unparalleled magic and beauty. This park is more focused on providing awesome scenery and its sprawling layout can be a bit of a trek, so prepare accordingly. There are four larger thrill seeker rides on the premises for those who wish to push themselves out of their comfort zone.

5. Alton Towers

Alton Towers offers United Kingdom visitors with one of the most complete and immersive amusement park experiences in the entire world.

They offer families the ability to choose between an array of fun water rides, thrilling roller coasters and family friendly roller coasters. There is also an adjacent hotel to make life easier, as well as a state of the art indoor water park.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum with an 8 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.
