Rust, Germany: Race around with Ed Euromaus and his friends in a mine cart or embark on a daring adventure with the ‘Happy Family’ – on exciting virtual reality adventures, Europa-Park now also offers visitors at-home entertainment. Germany’s largest theme park is expanding its digital range of products with MackMedia’s app ‘Coastiality’, providing smartphone owners with four fabulous 360° worlds to dive into.
Whether it’s on board the Alpenexpress Coastiality or the Pegasus Coastiality, guests have been able to experience the innovative rollercoaster ride since 2015 with the help of VR technology. The new app makes it possible to take a piece of Europa-Park home: The intuitive controls of ‘Coastiality’ let its users witness two breathtaking animations shown on both rollercoaster rides, in part and round the clock. Moreover, two rides are available to watch as 360° videos on the Alpenexpress Enzian and Pegasus rollercoasters.
MackMedia, which produced the app ‘Coastiality’, will continue to provide additional 360° videos in future. They can be played after updating the app on the smartphone. The app can be used with or without VR glasses (e.g. Google Cardboard) and is available for free download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The addition of an app for Samsung GearVR and Oculus Rift will round off the offer in the weeks to come. From mid-July, the official ‘Coastiality’ Cardboard will be available for purchase in all shops in German’s largest theme park, as well as online for just €9.90.
‘Coastiality’ is a mark of excellence for MackMedia’s first-class virtual reality (VR) content, which rollercoaster riders can experience on the Alpenexpress Coastiality and the Pegasus Coastiality. It describes the experience and operation of Europa-Park’s virtual reality (VR) offer and can be seen as a synonym and feeling for this.
Europa-Park will be open in the 2016 summer season from 19th March to 6th November from 9am to 6pm daily (longer opening hours during peak season).
