Star Trek: Operation Enterprise, a brand-new “triple launch coaster,” is now open at Movie Park Germany after two years of planning and construction.
Trek fans visiting the amusement park can become part of a Trek storyline. “The crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D was on its way to a Federation conference when they were attacked by the Borg. The entire crew has been transported to the Borg vessel and their unmanned ship is now being held by a tractor beam. Both crew and ship are incapacitated. You’re their last hope!
“As new cadet on a nearby vessel you beam aboard the derelict Enterprise. From there, you will take a small shuttle craft to go on the mission of your life: Break through the enemy shields and disable all main systems. Save the crew of the Enterprise during this spectacular rescue mission and successfully complete the holodeck simulation.”
“We’re incredibly proud of our new themed attraction,” said Thorsten Backhaus, General Manager of Movie Park Germany. “It’s a roller coaster that gives guests an adrenaline rush and much more.”
The Federation Plaza theme area includes the coaster, holodecks, transporter rooms and a re-creation of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D Bridge from The Next Generation. “We are particularly proud of this,” said Backhaus. “The many small details gave us a lot of night shifts, but it was worth it.
Movie Park Germany is located in Bottrop-Kirchhellen, which is in North Rhine-Westphalia.
