Movie Park Germany, in collaboration with licensor CBS Consumer Products, has developed a “Star Trek”-themed roller coaster and a Federation Plaza area.
Set to open this spring, the new roller coaster, titled Star Trek: Operation Enterprise, will focus on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and will allow guests to enjoy a warp speed experience and more. The roller coaster will also serve as the second highest structure in the park.
Meanwhile, the new Federation Plaza theme area will aim to bring the Starfleet Academy world to life through shops, themed rooms and a mission to save the entire crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise before the Borg can assimilate them.
“It’s not enough today to have a unique coaster,” says Thorsten Backhaus, general manager, Movie Park Germany. “You also need the perfect storyline. We have to make our guests part of something exciting from the moment they enter the attraction to the moment they leave. ‘Star Trek’ is a franchise that appeals to a wide audience. Movie and TV series licenses are what our park is all about and ‘Star Trek’ has been inspiring generations of people for more than 50 years.”
