Privacy curtain for Europe's largest Flying Theatre

In Europa-Park's Voletarium flight simulator, the dream of flying becomes reality! In a virtual sightseeing flight, visitors experience Europe from a bird's eye view. Extraordinary shots in 8K and various special effects such as wind, water and scents round off the multi-sensory experience.

To optimise the flow of visitors, Gerriets installed motorised privacy curtains in front of the screen of the two identical theatres. This means that visitors only find out what is hidden on the other side of the curtain shortly before the flight simulator starts - they take their seats more quickly and the excitement increases!
