Voletarium – big dream…
At the beginning of the 19th century, Kaspar and Eckbert Eulenstein were the first people who wanted to realize the dream of flying. For many years, visionaries have worked without a hitch on various types of flying machines. Around 1825 the Eulenstein brothers suddenly disappeared without a trace. The traces discovered later in the brothers’ lab suggested that they successfully built a functioning flying machine named Volatus II.
To commemorate the inventor’s memory their young relatives Lawrence and Emily decided to prove that the historic Volatus II flight was a success. Join the adventure and help young explorers unravel the mystery of Volatus II!
Humanity from the beginning of its existence has tried to shift the boundary and overcome the limits imposed by nature. It is also natural to look further up and beyond the horizon. History knows many daredevil who take this dream as purpose of its life. It was they who got the tops of the highest mountains and discovered unknown lands. The possibility of acquiring the sky was one of the eternal dreams of mankind, for which he was able to devote much.
The Voletarium: Sky Explorers gives you the opportunity to rise above the horizon driving a mysterious flying machine powered only by the forces of nature – Volatus II.
Dance with the nature’s forces
Gliders do not have their own propulsion, they are the “wings” of the pilot, and the engine is the sun, the wind, rising currents and the ability to use atmospheric forces.
The glider’s pilot is doomed to nature. Even the most glider drops and only by skillful use of air currents can he gain the height he needs to travel and maintain it in the air. Energies can also be drawn from streams heated by the earth’s air (as in balloon) or wind, because the mountains are tilted toward the sky and form waves in the air. The glider takes the heights of such currents – it “shatters energy” – and then glides forward looking for the next one.
Driving gliders, we have the opportunity to visit various parts of the world, including those inaccessible or too far away for traveling on earth. Peaks of the highest mountains, swamps, wastes, inaccessible glaciers – all within our reach, without the fuel consumption.
