Get ready to soar above Europe on Europa Park's Project V

September 30, 2016, 8:37 AM · Germany's Europa Park has opened a preview center for its new 2017 attraction — Project V.

Billed as Europe's largest flying theater, Project V (yes, that's a working title) will take visitors on a Soarin'-style journey to some of Europe's most popular tourist destinations. The most expensive individual attraction in the history of Europa Park, the attraction will accommodate 1,400 visitors per hour in two theaters, each with 21 meter screens.

The story behind the attraction is that of "aviation pioneers Egbert and Kaspar Eulenstein," whose lives, in the park's backstory, "were dominated by sketches, studies and experiments with the aim of taking flight themselves one day. In their laboratory no stone was left unturned to make their childhood dream become reality: To fly as free as a bird, at any time and wherever the wind carries them."

Visitors will walk through their facility in the queue, on their way to the twin theaters, where the show will play. (Here's another video that shows the specs of the theater.) Co-produced by MackMedia and Ambient Entertainment, the show will feature wind and water effects in addition to the travelogue showing famous sights from around Europe.

The preview center, which opened this week, features scale models, concept art and descriptions of the attraction, which will open sometime next year.

Piraten in Batavia (Pirates of the Caribbean), Universum der Energy (Universe of Energy), Eurosat (Space Mountain/Spaceship Earth), Geisterschloss (Haunted Mansion), Carnival in Venice (Tiki Room), and now they're going to have Soarin' around Europe. I wonder what the chances are now of Disneyland Paris Resort getting the Soarin attraction?

You're welcome.
