I have a discount from the European Coaster Club which gives me the entrance at group rates but I need another one for a friend. Any idea? I live in Switzerland and I thought maybe Coop or Migros have something.
I don't know, maybe Migros and Coop just sell Tickets in advance for CHF instead of €, but I don't really know it. I always paid there. But if you have Clup TPR Membership then you get discounts!

The park are currently making major alterations to their Splash Battle. The ride will be called 'Whale Adventures: Northern Lights' from July 2015 and EP are adding 2 dark ride sections and new thematic elements, along with a new ride entrance and bridge. I believe the aim is to reduce the 'soaking' aspect of the ride and instead make it into more of a scenic indoor/outdoor boat ride in a bid to attract more riders.
English-language EP facebook page EuropaStreet has updated with some images from today of the development as it is ongoing:
i haven´t found a thread about VR-coasters, but i think it is really too intresting tohide it from the community. So cause of Europa Park and Mack rides supported the students by researching and building a company, think this will be the best place to post it!
Since some students and Mack tested VR on a BlueFire they started testing more different experiences on most of their coasters... and it seems to be awesome. So they now seem to have build a company which creates ride VR experiences:
So in the mean time, it seems they reached the point were the figured out most problems like safety, synchronization and a lot more to get a great experience... And so they showed a lot more videos from their first tests:
- their first experience, fantasy-scenario on BlueFire:
- a flying islands experience on Pegasus:
- an underwater experience on BlueFire:
- a space mine ride on BlueFire:
- and a cartoonish lokking eastern/asian town flyby on BlueFire:
Like seen in the first video, they seemed to have already tested it a on some more coasters like EuropaParks powered coaster "Alpenexpress" and on your beloved "EuroMir". And there are a lot of pics from other projects like a "Tron"-like ride, a fruity experience and even an interactive space battle:
It is really interesting and i can´t wait to test it in real life since i am huge coaster fan and i am working with the oculus rift dk2 on my own at my university. And now i just read some rumors that they maybe will renew their coaster "EuroSat" (which was often said since years on fan meetings) but then with a VR-experience! That really would be great because EuroSat was my first big Coaster as child in my home Park "Europa Park" and i really hope that this will be true.
So can´t wait what we will see with VR "mixed Reality rides" (as i call it) in the future
If you want to know more about the project there are a lot more pictures and infomations about it on their homepage. All the videos and images are from the same source: www.vr-coaster.com
