The thing that immediately struck me was an entirely separate station solely for VR. THAT sounds like the ideal way to implement VR on a coaster with minimal impact on capacity; the non-VR station can continue dispatching in the meantime. Sure, it's really not an option for parks looking to add VR to existing rides, but for any park looking to build a coaster intended to have a VR option from day one, the new Eurosat seems to be the exemplary way to do it.

It is actually quite easy to implement to existing rides, adding a Pulsar style turn table at one of the blocks, or a Disneyland Space Mountain accessible loading station would work.

There's the issue of space and the timing of the blocks would have to change.

- Apparently the entire globe will have to be dismantled and rebuilt during the renovations which are set to last from the end of 2017 until August 2018.

- The layout and trains will remain basically the same but the entire track will be rebuilt and three new "elements" will be added.

- More radical changes were considered (including a vertical lift) but the layout was kept the same to preserve the memory of designer Franz Mack.

- The VR entrance is set to be on the back of the globe near Silver Star.

All excellent news. The ride is awesome as is but could definitely use some TLC. These new "elements" have me intrigued, though, because now I'm envisioning Winjas style surprises.

Also, keeping the spiral lift is the best decision.

I am very excited to see the "open globe". When work starts after summer season, you should have a good look from the observation tower!

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

Europa-Park reveals name of new water park and hotel

140917stiep4.jpg

Europa-Park has today revealed the names of a brand new water park and a new hotel. In 2019, the German theme park opens Rulantica, the swimming paradise. The name is a composition of the German village Rust - where the park is located - and Atlantica.

This was announced this morning by Europa-Park Director Michael Mack at a press conference. He also showed the logo of Rulantica. The background story is about a fictional society of explorers, the Adventure Club of Europe.

There are slides, whirlpools, a wave pool and a surf simulator under a 25 meter high shell-shaped roof. Today, new drawings came out. Rulantica will be finished at the end of 2019.

In the same year, a sixth hotel called Krønasår - The Museum Hotel opens. The complex is designed as a natural history museum. There are 304 themed rooms and suites for a total of 1300 guests.

Both projects cost about 140 million euros. According to owner Roland Mack, Europa-Park has been preparing for the water park for twenty years.

In an interview with Europa Park Radio, park director Micheal Mack confirmed that Europa Park will add a new land with a large coaster sometime after the hotel and waterpark opens in 2019. The new land will be built behind the Greek area and will have a "real blaster" of a coaster according to Mr. Mack. The theme has yet to be determined, but Scotland, Romania, Poland and Croatia are the top candidates.

In other news, VR on Pegasus will be removed by the end of the season, Eurosat's redesign will include a new queue but stay true to the "feel" of the original ride and the nearby Universe of Energy will also be redesigned in the near future.
