    The new YULLBE VR attraction was actually due to open at the end of last month but obviously with current lockdown it did not happen. No new timeframe has been given for the opening. However they did launch a new look website for it and have stepped up its social media presence recently. Website Link

    The original press release:
    There will be a preshow room before the open space roaming room where the experience and activities take place. Same as EuroSat VR it will only be for those 14 years and older.



    The new headsets for YULLBE.


    As seen a while ago in testing, one of the interactive challenges will involve cycling apparently?




    I know VR is definitely not the most popular thing among fans but if they can combine the high quality graphics of Crazy Bats with the roaming VR tech of Valerian/Eurosat VR I should be something quite interesting to try out whenever it does open. Also intrigued to see how successful is it as a separate midway for the resort.

    This fits right into the "not putting things on my face that have been on someone else's face" policy that I will be adhering to for the foreseeable.

    I am sure it will be cool though, the Ghostbusters things at Tussauds New York is the coolest use of VR I have experienced, far better than on a 'ride'.

    It certainly looks an interesting concept and something that I would experience if I was to visit. Having said that, VR is surely one of the things that is not at all viable in the CV world that we live in. They surely cannot debut this until it has blown over, as Rick says I would not want to be putting this over my face when it has been on someone else's, even after some sanitisation!

    "Not putting things on my face that have been on someone else's face"...
    Mind reels with sarcastic replies Rick...but we are not in the Tavern.

    Gosh. I don't have much interest in these vanity projects at all.

    Yeah I’m pretty sure the VR uptake will be limited for some considerable time.

    Today's press conference from EP also revealed some new details about YULLBE.
    - 30 minute long VR adventure using a new tracking system and new headsets with a wider view range.
    - Contrary to the original report that claimed it would be housed in rooms just off the Rulantica entry foyer; now Michael Mack says it will be in a new location beside Rulantica.
    - The story will revolve around the discovery of Rulantica and the Adventure Club of Europe. Robbemund will also be a part of this adventure.
    - Attached to YULLBE will be a new restaurant as well. Thomas Mack said he is still working on a name for it.

    So ACE VR or new Rulantica/Kronsar restaurant what are people more excited for? ;)

    Going to be really shocked if they are able to run a VR attraction safely after Corona

    This is a strange marketing image but sure...


    EDIT: Apparently it is set to open in August.

    The marketing image contains Robbemond (Piraten in Batavia), the Voletarium drone, Svalgur (Rulantica) and Myra Moon (Traumatica).

    Increasingly feel that this obsession with VR is the first major misstep EP have ever made.

    At least this is a separate ticket, separate building. I do like the Eurosat Coasiality product, I think it's really well refined and doesn't detract from the main Eurosat coaster. The Alpenexpress VR though, just needs to go really.

    New information about the YULLBE experience and the first mission that will be available from an EP Blog post.
    Tickets will be available from the beginning of August. No opening date is set yet, other than within the month of August. Staff start work on 1st August though according to the job advertisement for operators.

    Given when I visited Rulantica 2 weeks ago the building was still a hole in the ground hope they better be speeding it up! No more information on the new restaurant I assume it will open later.

    YULLBE has encountered some issues resulting in delays with its construction work. When its now set to open is unclear.

    Its been announced today YULLBE will open 17th September and tickets are now available to book.

    Mission Rulantica - 30 minutes long group experience - 29 euros per person
    The Traumatica experience will be available from the 2nd October. 10 minutes long 18+ horror experience for 12 euros.

    Meanwhile the building beside Kronasar has been fully erected. It was assembled from delivered components and seems quite temporary. I believe they wish to gauge how much demand there is from guests for YULLBE before building a permanent venue at the resort.

    I can't think of an EP project I've ever been less interested in.

    YULLBE sorry you parted with €29 for this.

    The YULLBE building has now recieved some printed facades. Allegedly someone with the initials RM wasn't pleased with its appearance and insisted on theming before opening. Just under 2 weeks until the announced opening now.

    Very interested to see how popular this resort activity experiment will be.
