Europa Park is invariably associated with its iconic shiny dome. Until recently, it housed "Eurosat", a historic coaster opened in 1989.
The attraction was closed in 2017 to be completely renewed: the rails and the trains were replaced, and the old theme "conquest space" gave way to a new Parisian and French Can-Can atmosphere. Although the rails have been completely replaced, the layout has remained almost identical to the previous version to honor a "classic" Europa Park attraction.
Sound, video and visual effects play an important role in the new french theming. Tejix has been appointed to create a video mapping show in the scene following the departure from the station.
While the train stops for a few seconds in a wine cellar, the bottles stored there begin to collide until an elixir escapes and turns into a pixie dust that guides guests towards the end of their journey. Several laser projectors and other devices have been used to achieve the effect.
Kazuki Uehara from our Tokyo team designed the animation before going on site to finalize adjustments. About this experience, he tells us: "The working conditions in the coaster were a little disconcerting, but the Europa Park great team gave us a lot of support. Thanks to them, we were able to deliver the technical system and media in time for the opening of the attraction ".
Projects of this type requires deep understanding of the technical, artistic, operating and maintenance challenges operators are facing, making Tejix the partner of choice.
