Europa-Park opens VR attraction YULLBE with ‘Mission Rulantica’ experience


Europa-Park has opened YULLBE, a new virtual reality (VR) attraction offering the ‘Mission Rulantica’ and ‘Traumatica’ experiences, created by MackNeXT and VR Coaster.

Located close to Rulantica and Europa-Park’s sixth themed hotel Krønasår, YULLBE is a new sensory experience that goes beyond the limits of the imagination.

Michael Mack, managing partner of Europa-Park and founder of MackNeXT, said: “Our in-house innovation department, together with VR Coaster, have achieved another great success with YULLBE.

“This unique VR experience can bring entire worlds to life and create a new level of entertainment,” added Mack.

After checking in, visitors are equipped with backpack PCs, complete with trackers and VR helmets, as they prepare for ‘Mission: Rulantica’.

‘Mission Rulantica’ is a 30-minute adventure inviting visitors to become recruits for the legendary ‘Adventure Club of Europe’, pioneered by Bartholomeus van Robbemond and Myra.

Players embark on a breathtaking mission through time and space to Rulantica, where they meet giants, dragon tamers and travellers, as well as the god Loki and sea serpent Svalgur.

YULLBE is a full-body tracking, free-roaming VR experience, in which players can move freely in the virtual space.

YULLBE is also offering a Halloween-themed experience called ‘Traumatica’, as part of the park’s seasonal ‘Horror Nights – Traumatica’, from October 2.

During the 10-minute experience, participants immerse themselves in the horror of a post-apocalyptic world, as terrifying creatures and villains lurk in the shadows.

The ‘Mission: Rulantica’ and ‘Traumatica’ experiences are available in German, English and French.

Earlier this year, Europa-Park celebrated the reopening of its popular family attraction Pirates in Batavia, which was destroyed in a fire at the theme park in 2018.

Europa-Park reopened amid the coronavirus crisis on May 29. Prior to that, it unveiled health and safety precautions in a video explaining the ‘new normal’.
