    Does virtual reality have a place within theme parks?

    I actually say yes. But it every much depends on how its done. The short 2016 craze was very much a quick cash in and not focussed on quality or long term sustainability. Issues of image quality, content, capacity, suitable attraction and interaction need to be properly looked at. Not just slap...

    Dreamworld Australia | Steel Taipan | Modified Blue Fire Clone | 2021

    A sensible park would sell a limited number of tickets then / time slots. As I said you can control that queue a lot easier as an operator.

    Helps capacity does it not? An upcharge gimmick/spinning back row you can control your queue with the sale of limited tickets. While the main queue has the extra capacity to move quicker with not all trains being hybrids.

    Europa Park | Mack Rides BigDipper | 2023

    I believe the land marked/planning permission is just for the attraction so the new themed area is not included. That will likely be in the space beside (the Immer Weider Sonntages show area and Traumatica site). Like Blue Fire you probably have a themed street/square beside the coaster rather...

    List of coasters with implemented Onride-Videos

    Blue Fire and Matterhorn Blitz in Europa Park still have this. EuroMir did too until 2020.

    Europa Park | Mack Rides BigDipper | 2023

    I find the chances of this not being a duelling coaster ever decreasing; and as discussed 2 BigDippers can easily achieve the desired capacity. Plus in such an awkward and narrow site the maneuverers and small cars of the BigDipper would be well suited, even 2 alongside each other, compared to...

    Michael Mack confirms EP's 2023 BigDipper will have a length of 1,600m. It will be for the same target audience as Blue Fire. https://www.instagram.com/p/CSH7i9BLjiq/?utm_medium=copy_link The likelihood of it being actually two coasters duelling seems only to increase. Both coasters with 800m?

    I mean it could possibly also be used in EP as well. Mack own the element after all. Might as well use it more than once. Who knows.

    Yes. After all the description says "opening next year" and "#familycoaster".

    "Steel could look better in this spot" Michael Mack teasing the coaster with some pictures from the Greek area towards the future site of the new ride. That view really will change dramatically.

    Europa Park | Mack Rides BigDipper | 2023

    The local council gave the draft plan their blessing. Now visual, noise and environmental studies will be conducted before it can be officially approved. The opposition group to the park have already criticised it. Concerns were also raised about a 12m sound barrier wall planned. The park also...

    Europa Park | Mack Rides BigDipper | 2023

    Yes it will be a modified/advanced version of the BigDipper. LSM launched, no taller than 38m and 80km/h top speed. Capacity should be on par with Silver Star (1,750 pph).

    Europa Park | Mack Rides BigDipper | 2023

    Mack still use the park as an effective showcase. Maybe not a new coaster product since Arthur but their Snorri Touren ride system, VR Coaster systems at Alpenexpress and Eurosat, YULLBE VR experience (which just sold another installation to Hamburg), Mack Media's capabilities to produce flying...

    Europa Park | Mack Rides BigDipper | 2023

    Following the expansion behind Greece (Croatia/the new coasters) EP has hit their growth limit. Around and behind Rulantica they do have land however that'll be resort expansion. The actual park is almost full. A drop tower the height of Eurotower won't happen for sure. Its taller than Silver...

    Europa Park | Mack Rides BigDipper | 2023

    Apparatus OHM and Transferator OHM are almost certainly the duelling coasters imo. As Howie said a traditional drop tower you can forget about. Would need to be Mystery Castle or Tower of Terror style enclosed ones for the noise and capacity. However the park have not ever shown an interest in...
