Germany’s Europa-Park has revealed the name of its 14th roller coaster, which is called Voltron Nevera powered by Rimac.
Under construction in the theme park‘s new Croatia-themed area, Voltron Nevera by Mack Rides will immerse visitors in Serbian-American inventor and engineer Nikola Tesla’s electricity experiments.
It is named after Mate Rimac, the founder and CEO of Rimac Automobili, a Croatian automotive manufacturer, and the company’s Rimac Nevera electric sports car.
At 1,385 metres, the roller coaster is the longest multi-launch coaster in Europe. Its 105-degree launch is the steepest in the world.
Voltron Nevera has almost 300 stators, which will catapult the trains at up to 90 km/h four times, once backwards. It will also boast four launches and seven inversions.
The coaster station is inspired by Wardenclyffe Tower, an early experimental wireless transmission station designed and built by Nikola Tesla.
Michael Mack said the collaboration with Rimac is “a perfect match”. He added: “We’re united by our entrepreneurial spirit, our passion for acceleration and our special relationship with Croatia.”
“My wife Miriam comes from the country and as such has played a key inspirational role in the shaping of the new themed area,” said Mack.
“The fact that our new cooperation partner is now also from Croatia makes me very proud.”
Europa-Park‘s first major new coaster in 12 years is scheduled for completion in 2024. From this autumn, a new 4D film produced by Mack Magic will tell the story of Nikola Tesla.
“The history of the Mack family is very fascinating to me,” said Rimac.
“This is where visionaries and top engineers meet, both striving to be the best in their field. For me, it is an honour that Germany’s largest theme park will not only be able to show our innovations, but also present the rich history and culture of Croatia.”
