Europa-Park CEO Michael Mack has confirmed that the planning application for the park’s new roller coaster has been approved.

In a tweet, Mack said the council “has approved the building application for our new roller coaster in the upcoming Croatian themed area”. He said the ride “promises to be yet another spectacular highlight” for Europa-Park.

The largest theme park in Germany is set to open its new coaster in 2023. Europa-Park is releasing a series of videos on its VeeJoy streaming platform that unveil the ride’s development. The latest episode takes viewers to the construction site.

VeeJoy offers on-demand theme park content such as audio plays, the Europa Radio Talk podcast, MackNeXT and MackMedia movies, and behind-the-scenes footage.

In March, Mack tweeted a link to the first episode. “Europa-Park keeps growing,” a video description reads. 

“One of the most modern and spectacular coasters in Europe will be built in Germany’s most popular amusement park in the coming months.”

Mack Animation, a leading animation studio and film production company, recently installed a new virtual reality (VR) attraction at Europa-Park.

Prior to that, Europa-Park opened an underwater VR experience called ‘Snorri Snorkeling VR’, which came after the successful launch of YULLBE.

Snorri Snorkeling VR takes visitors on a virtual dive to Rulantica, Europa-Park’s indoor water park. “With Rulantica we have created an imaginative story world that is full of ideas,” Mack said.

He said the attraction offers guests “another great new innovation which already enables children to experience an exciting VR journey around the mystical island of Rulantica”.
