The theme of Excalibur is loosely based on the myths of King Arthur and the sword of Excalibur. The ride consists of a heavily themed rapid river which is partly situated outdoors and partly indoors.
Excalibur features German actor Willi Hagemeier (1954 – 2019) as wizard Merlin.
The original Rapid River ride opened up in 1996 as ''Die Unendliche Geschichte'' (The NeverEnding Story). When the park was sold to StarParks in 2004, the rights to the intellectual property of Warner Brothers were lost. Unendliche Geschichte was modified to Mystery River, an IP-less fantasy themed ride. The ride was rethemed again in 2018 to Excalibur – Secrets of the Dark Forest, giving it a new storyline.
