Mack Rides partners with film director Luc Besson for new VR coaster

Eurosat Coastiality is based on Luc Besson's 2017 blockbuster Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Mack Rides has partnered with acclaimed film director Luc Besson to develop Eurosat Coastiality, a brand new VR dark coaster experience at Europa-Park.

Expected to open this summer, Eurosat Coastiality is based on Besson's 2017 blockbuster, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, and will take riders on an epic space-themed adventure.

It will be located inside the Eurosat sphere in the newly-renovated France-themed area of the park, and will share its home with the Moulin Rouge-themed Eurosat - CanCan Coaster. It will be the first attraction of its kind to host two rides, which use the same track, within the same space, and will feature a second station with a shift track and separate trains in order to accommodate the experience.

"'Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets' on Eurosat Coastiality will be both exceptional and exclusive," says Luc Besson, chairman of French motion picture company EuropaCorp.

"I cannot imagine a better partner for the Eurosat Coastiality project," says managing partner of MackMedia, Michael Mack.

"The combination of Luc Besson and Valerian's sensational space story is a perfect first for us. I am happy to pick up on the popular space theme and offer it once again to our visitors", Mack adds.

Mack Rides will work alongside VR Coaster to create and install the technical elements of the ride, while Mack's media development arm, Mack Media, will create the 360-degree content for the roller coaster, which riders will view on a VR headset.
