We decided we wanted to try Europa Park, which is a cool amusement park in Rust, Germany. A road trip was in order, so we dropped Penny off at Astrid’s (her dog sitter) set off in the car on Saturday morning. Getting to Rust took us through the Black Forest, which was absolutely beautiful.

We arrived in Rust and immediately went to the park. Europa Park is a theme park with rides based on European countries. So, similar to Epcot, except only European countries, but with a lot more rides. It was cute and the kids LOVED it. We met up with some families from our school, which made it all the better.

There was an entire section of the park dedicated to Grimm’s fairytales. This is Juliana trying on the golden slipper.
We couldn’t pass up the cotton candy. At German prices, it was a steal. These would have been 10 franc in Switzerland, but we paid 2 euro in Germany.

The Arthur ride (U.K.) was one of their favorites.
