Europa Park had a livestream from the opening ceremony of the Voletarium yesterday, if anyones interested you can watch it here. At 01:56:54 in the video you can see a queue line walkthrough and it looks AMAZING Video (Embedding facebook videos is not working somehow?)
I think those Flying Theatres are a bit overrated. I mean sure they are pretty cool (but not exceptional). I haven't been to the Voletarium but from Switzerland it's only a 2,5h drive, so no problem in trying it out.
As it being the most costly investment, I don't think it's their best attraction. So I hope they really push their waterpark addition or a new coaster
One of the oldest roller coasters at Europa-Park will get a big make-over for the 2018 season. The indoor coaster Eurosat from 1989 will soon be rebuilt. That has been announced tonight at a meeting by Michael Mack .
There won't be much left of Eurosat when it opens again during the Easter holidays of 2018. The park said that the ride will be thoroughly renovated by 2018. There will be a new layout, which, of course, involves a full renewal of the track. The guests will experience a complete new ride.
Also, virtual reality will be used as an additional option. The renewed roller coaster will therefore have its own, extra entry and exit station for VR users. Remarkably, because this year, the park announced that it is going to remove the VR offer at Pegasus because it affected the capacity. Perhaps the additional station and a ride with more capacity will provide a solution to Pegasus's capacity problem.

I'm waiting for people to nitpick the translation, although it is crystal clear that this is a new coaster. No me it is no big loss for the park, whatever they install has to be more entertaining.

As usual, my analysis is free of charge! Original enough to not steal someone else's quote as a signature
I've heard fantastic things about EuroSat, but this coaster probably has reached its end of service because I suppose back in 1989, nobody expected Europa Park would turn into such a huge thing and Mack didn't design the coaster to be put through the insane amount of cycles it does now. A new coaster designed to be more heavy-duty and have VR/whatever that will be hip in the future in mind will help a lot not to mention save the park a lot of money in the long run.
When I read the news on Looopings they said the lay-out would be mostly the same. But now I understand what going to happen, this is just going to be a diffrent coaster. Look forward to what they end up doing.
