On the „Alpenexpress VR-Ride“ roller coaster in the Austrian-themed section, passengers will be able to enjoy an adventure never experienced before using virtual reality glasses. Futuristic worlds will unfold before your very eyes, while you simultaneously experience the rushing air, centrifugal force and twists and turns of a real-life roller coaster ride. During the ride, users will be able to see an animated 3D world in front of their eyes that perfectly matches the actual track. The VR-Ride adventure is based on the first 4D film by MackMedia, “The Mystery of Castle Balthasar”. Visitors will be immersed in the world of Ed Euromaus and his friends and experience a wild ride in a mine cart, before riding on a dragon back to the world of Europa-Park.
This innovation has been made possible through cooperation between the companies VR Coaster, Mack Rides, MackMedia and Samsung.
