Re: Virtual reality - Europa Park

Thu Feb 04, 2016 6:11 pm

Following on from AlpenExpress, Europa Park have announced on Twitter that another of their coasters will be receiving the Virtual Reality treatment for the 2016 season - Pegasus.

This means that Europa Park will have two VR rides for this year. At the moment it is not known exactly what Pegasus' simulation will be, or if it will be included or and upcharge, although I suspect further information will be released nearer the time.

I have to say I'm not 100% sure about this. Whilst I can see why a park would want to include new technology on one of their rides I'm not so keen on it being rolled out elsewhere. My concern would be that eventually it could be added to a significant number of attractions and, although I am yet to try a VR coaster, I'm not sure it would be right to include it on more than one or two rides. It will certainly be interesting to experience this when I visit Europa later this year, and to see how it compares to Galactica at Towers.

Europa park have announced a new attraction for 2017 - code named Project V.

The attraction will be europes largest flying theatre attraction, with two theatres seating 70 guests each (think Disney's Soarin'). The experience will last approximately 4 and a half minutes and will give riders the sensation of flying over various European locations! It's set to be the most expensive attraction in the parks history. Here is the attraction teaser trailer!

From the sounds of it they could be replacing it with a new coaster entirely, but with the same building and theme.  Could we maybe see an indoor Big Dipper or just a similar experience to what's there now but with the new Mack Mega track?  Whatever it is, it'll most certainly be of high quality knowing the Macks!

'Eurosat 2.0' will feature 'new tracks', 'slightly adjusted layouts' and, yet again at Europa, Virtual Reality. A dual loading station is also rumoured...
