It looks at the growing popularity of ‘stay-cations’ among younger holidaymakers and follows Europa’s energetic staff as they keep the site running through the busy peak season, even when things get tough.

With smiles all around, amid the odd fiery debate, cameras follow the team as they battle the trusty British weather and the rabble of resident partygoers.

Producers promise the viewers are in for a treat, with a number of stars set to emerge from the show, with a particular focus on Europa’s very own Joe and Vicki.

“We’re all really excited for the show to be aired,” said Emma Fordham, park duty manager.

“We had a great time filming it, as did all our guests last summer, and we hope that really comes across in the show.

“We want to prove you don’t need to be on a party island to have a good holiday! You have sea, sand and sometimes even sun right here in Devon.”

Europa Park is looking forward to another busy summer season and the launch of its very own music festival on May 3 with Europa Fest. For information on this event and for tickets visit www.europafest.co.uk.
