New VR experience coming to Europa-Park


Howl-O-Scream modified for safety

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s annual Halloween event, Howl-O-Scream, will return this autumn for its 21st year. The creative production team has been consulting with medical experts and has modified this year’s event content with a focus on open- air scare zones and entertainment, as well as enhanced health and safety measures, while staying true to the core of this fan-favourite experience. With significantly limited capacity to create plenty of open space, guests will experience the heart-pounding fear of unexpected horrors including freakishly fun themed open-air scare zones


throughout the 335-acre park, in addition to Busch Gardens’ thrilling coasters at night. Howl-O-Scream is staged during 18 nights every Friday through Sunday from September 25 through November 1, 2020. In addition to enhancing the park’s already strict health and safety measures, including consulting with medical experts, face covering requirements, and temperature screenings, park capacity will be significantly limited to create even more open space for guests to be scared, terrified, and thrilled throughout one of Florida’s largest theme parks.

rom 17 September, visitors to Europa- Park can experience of a completely new dimension via new VR attraction YULLBE. Up to eight people and 32 users aged 14 and older can immerse themselves in virtual worlds to experience adventures and challenges. MackNeXT and VR Coaster developed the unique ‘Full Body Tracking Free Roaming VR Experience’ in cooperation with leading international designers and technology manufacturers – including the multiple Oscar and Emmy winner and motion capture specialist ‘Vicon’. Michael Mack, managing partner of Europa-Park and founder of MackNeXT said: “YULLBE can not only tell stories, but bring entire worlds to life and enable visitors to experience

them. This VR experience sets new standards. It is entertainment of the future.”

YULLBE is located on 600 square metres between the water world Rulantica and the hotel ‘Krønasår’ at Europa-Park. In the attraction, the entire body is displayed as an avatar and the simulation becomes a new reality. The guests can initially choose between two adventures, which differ in terms of duration, content and technical equipment.

As soon as you enter the building and choose your own avatar, the extraordinary excursion to Rulantica begins. Shortly afterwards, after putting on the futuristic backpack PC, the hand and foot trackers and the headset itself, the ultimate 30-minute adventure can begin.

The fan-favourite Fiends show, starring Dr. Freakenstein and his frightful entourage, will take to its largest stage ever for outdoor performances on the Festival

Field Stage. Bench seating will be arranged in a physically distant manner to ensure there is plenty of space for a limited number of guests to enjoy each performance.
