A Park, A Car, and a Dream: The Historical Backdrop
Before exploring the intricacies of this collaboration, it’s essential to understand the history and gravitas of the entities involved.
Europa-Park is not just any amusement park. With an impressive eight Golden Ticket Awards under its belt, it’s a veritable haven for theme park enthusiasts. Add to this its strategic location in Germany, and you’ve got a hotspot for tourists from all over the world.
Then, there’s Bugatti Rimac. Born out of a love for speed, engineering marvels, and innovation, Bugatti Rimac is synonymous with pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the automotive world. The name evokes images of sleek, powerful cars that make heads turn and hearts race.
A Tribute to Croatia: A Land of Legacy and Legends
The latest addition to Europa-Park is slated to be a sprawling area dedicated to Croatia. Now, why Croatia, one might ask? The answer lies in the pulsating heart of energy and innovation – Nikola Tesla.
The Croatian-born inventor, whose contributions to the world of electricity remain unparalleled, serves as the muse for this endeavor. Tesla’s ingenious inventions sparked revolutions and gave us the alternating current, the electric motor, and countless other breakthroughs.
Mate Rimac, the driving force behind Rimac Group and Bugatti Rimac, cites Tesla as a significant influence. With the Nevera all-electric hypercar and Rimac Technology business under their banner, they’re continuing Tesla’s legacy by pioneering in the realm of electric vehicles.
Mate Rimac, founder and CEO of the Rimac Group said: “Ever since the very beginnings of the Rimac Group, our Croatian identity has been at the core of the business. The home of the Rimac Group will always be in Croatia, and much of what we do is inspired by this country.
It’s an honor for our business to be represented in such a significant way at Europa-Park, and we’re excited to bring our first innovations to visitors from all over the world. But the addition of the Voltron Nevera ride is just the first step in our partnership, and as we grow even further, our relationship with Europa-Park will grow too.”
Voltron Nevera powered by Rimac: The Jewel in the Crown
When you think of Europa-Park, you think of rollercoasters. It has been 12 years since the park introduced a grand rollercoaster, making the anticipation for “Voltron Nevera powered by Rimac” palpable. Given the theme park’s legacy and Bugatti Rimac’s penchant for precision, expect nothing short of a masterpiece that’s bound to redefine theme park thrills.
The Beautiful Town of Hvar: An Integral Connection
The picturesque town of Hvar, Croatia, may seem like an odd mention in the high-speed world of rollercoasters and hypercars. But delve a little deeper, and it’s clear that Hvar is more than just a scenic locale. MACK One, the creative force within the Mack company group (integral to Europa-Park), draws inspiration from regions like Hvar.
Hvar’s charm and cultural significance also served as a backdrop for showcasing the Nevera, cementing its role as a pivotal player in the narrative of energy, innovation, and progress.
The Visionaries: Mate Rimac and Michael Mack
At the helm of this ambitious project are two entrepreneurial stalwarts: Mate Rimac and Michael Mack. While Rimac’s journey, culminating in a business empire valued at over 2bn Euros, is truly inspirational, Michael Mack’s contribution to Europa-Park’s meteoric rise is equally commendable.
Michael, the son of Europa-Park’s founder Roland Mack, has tirelessly furthered his father’s vision. An interesting tidbit? Michael’s wife, Miriam Mack, hails from Croatia, adding another layer of personal connection and inspiration to the Croatia-themed area.
Michael Mack, CEO Europa-Park, commented: “The cooperation is a perfect match. There couldn’t be anyone better than Mate Rimac and his team for this, as the company is 100 percent authentic. It is important to Europa-Park to strive for partnerships that take place on an equal footing.
That is why we are particularly looking forward to working together. This cooperation also brings together a young generation that thinks outside the box. 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 I have been able to get to know a lot of great people there. She has provided us with a lot of inspiration for the implementation of the new Croatian theming. The fact that our new cooperation partner is now also from Croatia makes me very proud.”
