The latest in a long line of industry colleagues to visit Europa-Park were received by the Mack family at the German facility on 11 July – and they were a particularly powerful bunch.
Pictured here (from left to right) we see Joe Schott, chief operating officer of Disneyland Paris; Meg Crofton, president of operations for Walt Disney Parks and Resorts; Roland Mack, Europa-Park; Claire Bibby, vice-president of marketing and sales for Disney Paris; Philippe Gas, CEO for Disneyland Paris; Jürgen Mack, Europa-Park; Chip Cleary, IAAPA; and Thomas Mack, Europa-Park.
The Disney representatives, seen here in front of the Bell Rock hotel, spent a full day exploring the expansive Europa-Park facilities and discussing the current state of the theme park industry. Apparently they were “deeply impressed” with what they saw!
Located in the Black Forest, near the town of Freiburg, Europa-Park is the busiest non-Disney park in Europe, entertaining 4.6 million guests in 2012.
