    So Europa Park has announced its new world's first gastronomy concept: Eatrenalin. Directly beside YULLBE and Hotel Kronasar it will "combine top gastronomic performance with mutli-sensory attractions to create a top-class experience. In this restaurant, media technology, ride systems, culinary delights and creative content will come together in an unprecedented form to create a first class experience that takes you on an extraordinary journey for all your senses."

    Thomas Mack says the aim is to reinvent gastronomy and touch the guests emotionally. It is time we took visitors on a futuristic journey into different worlds of pleasure, appealing to all their senses and astonishing them". It was developed together with Oliver Altherr, CEO of Marche International.

    The concept will bring together: transport systems from Mack Rides, virtual media from Mack Animation and Mack NeXT as well as the gastronomic expertise of the two-star chef Peter Hagen-Wiest.
    Opening is planned for Autumn 2021.

    Calling him a two star chef doesn't really sell his skills :tearsofjoy:

    I never thought I would hear (or read) anyone say that about Europa. Usually you lot defend Europa to the death.

    Just when you thought they’d run out of stuff to put VR on...

    Not sure I understand what it is to be honest.

    I’m thinking maybe it’s a bit ‘Heston Blumenthal’.

    Will be hilarious if this is a VR restaurant.
    Hoping maybe tables/booths are in like screen domes - so you can select an "experience" which plays around you, food is sent in by a transport system and matches the "experience" or something.
    Phantasialand's Fantissima features show segments with projecting mapping on the tables - perhaps they will use something similar as well?

    Maybe not and it is some VR or maybe a first foray into AR but any of sort of glasses on while dining sounds weird. Really don't know what to make of it.

    I love Europa, but I don't take sides. I'll praise Merlin when they have a good idea and I'll call out Europa when they go off the rails.

    That was the most non-sensical press release I've read in a while. Who knows, when we actually know what it is I might think it's a great idea. As long as it's not VR dinning, that could be a very messy experience.

    Oh my days, this sounds both completely and utterly ridiculous and intriguing at the same time. I was joking with @AstroDan the other night about this on Discord saying it'll be VR and ride systems and it sounds like it's going to be the case now. I'm so, so confused!

    If this doesn't feature a scale version of the monorail slowly trundling toward your table with a basket of breads onboard whilst Lingering Moments blasts out, I'm going to be INCREDIBLY disappointed.

    What else could we have? Doing away with glasses as you sit on a Twist n Splash as gallons of wine is sprayed AT you? Tea on the tea cups? Oof the possibilities are endless!

    Again, my disappointment will be immeasurable if this doesn't involve one of the Mack family clasping my hand bawling their eyes out while I'm chomping down on a steak and chips.

    Definite buzzword bingo with that press release though, the detail on what it will actually entail will be interesting in the next few months!

    I wish Europa would keep their focus on delivering quality offerings rather than gimmicks.

    They deliver truly splendid experiences when they want to but, sadly, the latter are starting to become more and more common.

    I'm not saying that the two are mutually exclusive, with Foodloop being a gimmick delivered with quality. This sounds overpriced and convoluted.

    I think this far more than just VR.

    Very interesting project which follows FoodLoop and Ammolite in food experiences.

    I dread to think how much it'll cost. A remortgage is out of the question.

    A 10 Michelin star VR restaurant on a Mack Rides omnimover with you dinner served by Michael Mack. Or something like that.

    Well to quote the great Jonathan Meades, originality has no place in the kitchen.

    Actually an animatronic Michael Mack, taking after Roland’s cameo in Pirates.
