    The enchanting Town of Hvar, Croatia played a key part in this collaboration, standing as one of the regions that inspired MACK One – the driving force behind unique ideas within the Mack company group.

    The driving forces behind the collaboration between Europa-Park and Rimac, Mate Rimac and Michael Mack, are two key figures of entrepreneurial spirit.

    Mate Rimac’s career has led him to create a globally renowned business valued at more than 2bn Euros, headquartered near to Zagreb, Croatia Similarly, son of Europa-Park’s founder Roland Mack, Michal Mack’s dedication and vision have been instrumental in shaping the park’s success. His wife, Miriam Mack, is from Croatia and her heritage has provided another source of inspiration for the new themed area.

    “The cooperation is a perfect match. There couldn’t be anyone better than Mate Rimac and his team for this, as the company is 100 percent authentic. It is important to Europa-Park to strive for partnerships that take place on an equal footing.

    That is why we are particularly looking forward to working together. This cooperation also brings together a young generation that thinks outside the box. We’re united by our entrepreneurial spirit, our passion for acceleration and our special relationship with Croatia.

    My wife Miriam comes from the country, and I have been able to get to know a lot of great people there. She has provided us with a lot of inspiration for the implementation of the new Croatian theming. The fact that our new cooperation partner is now also from Croatia makes me very proud.”

    The official announcement event in Hvar Town promises to be a grand celebration of innovation, bringing together key figures from Europa-Park and Rimac, along with media and esteemed VIPs from both brands.
