Buckle up and get ready for take-off at Europa-Park’s major new attraction – the Voletarium, which will officially open at Europa-Park on the 3rd of June.
The largest ‘Flying Theater’ in Europe allows passengers to immerse themselves in the fascinating world of the aviation pioneers and scientists, brothers Eckbert and Kaspar Eulenstein and experience a breath-taking 4.5 minute ‘flight’ across Europe.
Passengers will glide through the air on three levels, in seven chairlift-style flying machines (capacity 140 seats) in two theatres, offering a spectacular experience for all the senses. A 21-metre diameter screen provides dramatic visuals of Europe’s most spectacular landscapes and metropolises; special effects such as wind, water, and scent add authenticity to the ride, giving passengers a feeling of flying as never before. As passengers approach the Voletarium, eleven filmed ‘scenes’ reveal the story of the Eulenstein´s world and their special journey, guided by a talking drone.
Europa-Park’s MackMedia filmed extraordinary footage in 15 well-known European locations under the direction of Holger Tappe for the Voletarium. The soundtrack was recorded by a 60-piece orchestra. Highly technological and unique camera systems installed on helicopters and drones captured sensational recordings and helicopter flights across Venice were allowed for the first time since the filming of Casino Royale in 2006.
The park’s own 4* hotels ‘El Andaluz’ and ‘Castillo Alcazar’, plus the 4* superior hotels ‘Colosseo’, ‘Santa Isabel’ and ‘Bell Rock’, provide everything visitors need for a perfect family holiday or even a romantic wellness weekend. Europa-Park is the only theme park in Germany with a Michelin-Starred in-house restaurant, the 2* Michelin ‘Ammolite – The Lighthouse Restaurant’, which offers a superb menu in an elegant setting.
Europa-Park is open throughout the summer season from 1st of April to 5th of November 2017 daily from 9am to 6pm (longer opening hours during peak season).
