The history

The history of Europa-Park goes back to the 18th century. The workshops in Waldkirch at the time, founded by Paul Mack, quickly established a name for themselves for their skills in wagon construction. At the beginning of the 20th century, the family business started producing attractions for fun fairs. In 1972, Franz Mack and his son Roland went on a big trip to the US. There they both came up with the crucial idea: To build their own theme park that can also be used as showcase for the rides manufactured in Waldkirch.

On 12th July 1975, it was finally time: Europa-Park in Rust received its first visitors - the beginning of an unstoppable success story. The number of 250,000 visitors per year, which was reached in the first season, is increasing rapidly and the opening of various European themed areas contributes significantly to the popularity of the park.

Today, Europa-Park with around 5.8 million visitors in 2019, over 100 attractions, 18 themed areas, 6 themed hotels and the associated water world Rulantica, is not only a visitor magnet, but also an important company for the regional economy.

You can find the complete company history on our webpage.

100 years of Franz Mack

Europa-Park pioneer & founding father

Franz Mack was born on 7th March 1921 and took over his father's factory (now ‘MACK Rides’) in Waldkirch with his brothers after the war. "The world is my playground" served as the family motto and is representative of his efforts towards international expansion. Franz Mack, who was inducted into the ‘Hall of Fame’ of IAAPA in 2006, has numerous inventions and innovations to his name. Following his death in 2010, his creation, Europa-Park, is now under the operation and direction of his children and grandchildren, the 7th and 8th generation of Macks.

Franz Mack was a local entrepreneur through and through; modest, honest, hard-working, with high standards for himself and others. Those characteristics have formed the values of the family business and are the operating basics for his children and grandchildren.

On 7th March 2021, Europa-Park's founding father Franz Mack would have turned 100 years old.

Sustainability & social commitment

With over 5.8 million visitors a year, Germany's largest theme park is one of the nation's most popular holiday destinations. Although the focus at Europa-Park is on fun and entertainment, the family business places great value on sustainability. The company pursues a holistic approach and continues to work on improving ecological, economic and social sustainability aspects.

Sustainability has always been part of our DNA, and is strongly anchored in our mission statement.
