Europa-park, Rulantica – Rust, Germany

Europa-Park is the largest theme park in Germany, known for their impressive rollercoasters, and themed areas of the world.

The Brief

For the brand-new water park, Rulantica, we were intrigued to know the customer had bigger and better ideas of not wanting to create another idealistic “paradise” with a sunny era of palm trees and beaches. Instead, they were looking for soaring artificial pine trees and overgrown birch trees to create a European woodland feel.

Our Solution

Working to our customers’ requirements, we teamed with our local engineers JH Woods, who helped us design and fabricate the internal steel supports for the pine trees. We needed to ensure these fabulous trees could be effortlessly transported, yet be safe, secure and fit for purpose once installed on site. To get the typical tapering shape of a Douglas fir, we precession cut fire retardant polystyrene using our CAD driven polystyrene cutter and efficiently attached this to the internal steel structure. We took moulds from real pine trees to ensure the trees would be as realistic as possible. We closely studied the real trees so that we could mimic the unique branch structure Douglas fir’s have, along with the exact specific bark colouring.

The Outcome

The waterpark is truly out of this world, and the scale is simply impressive. Some of the manufactured trees are 12m tall, only adding to the impressive scale of the indoor space. The rows of pine and birch trees help separate areas off from each other, while setting the scene of being in a woodland. The time and effort spent observing the real trees really did pay off. The trees look hyper realistic, difficult to tell apart from the real thing. This is a perfect example of a large scale project, and shows our team are prepared to take on anything.

Fabulous team, helpful and always willing to go the extra mile. Great product, thoroughly impressed with the flowers, trees and plants that TreeLocate have to offer, they look extremely real. Have used on many occasions and will continue to use their products. Would recommend to a friend to use.

I ordered a custom made olive tree for my showroom in Dubai. They followed the brief fully and nothing was too much trouble. The timelines were all met and I was kept up to date each and every step of the way. Paul and Mark eased my concerns and the end result was better than I could have hoped for. I’d highly recommend Treelocate to anyone.
