AV for Dark Ride Attraction
Europa-Park, Rust (DE)
ARTHUR IN THE MINIMOYS KINGDOM @ EUROPA-PARK, RUST (GERMANY)
In summer 2014, Europa-Park opened the most intricate indoor attraction in the park's history. Based on Luc Besson's fantasy saga 'Arthur and the Invisibles', Europa-Park created, in close co-operation with the creator himself, an extraordinary themed visitor experience – the Minimoys Kingdom. The attraction is located in a 3,500 m2 indoor hall, hidden under a gigantic, 15-meter dome.
The attraction fascinates visitors with an unique coaster ride which is a world premiere attraction from Mack Rides. Passengers fly through the dream world in rotating gondolas suspended below the track. The incomparable ride combines dark ride sequences (effect-loaded indoor scenes) and dynamic coaster elements outside the dome.
For this prestigious project, Kraftwerk Living Technologies was primarily contracted with the integration of the entire lighting of the fairytale world. The range includes the accent and effect lighting of the various animatronics and props, the spherical and ambient lighting as well as gobo projections. Furthermore, Kraftwerk Living Technologies implemented various special effects like fog, wind, scent, water spray and heat effects.
In addition to the lighting and special effects, Kraftwerk Living Technologies also realized two rearprojection systems and a video mapping. The scope also included the system integration of various third-party components like the show control system and the audio system. Furthermore, Kraftwerk Living Technologies took responsibility for the audio and video playback systems, the lighting control system, the media control system as well as the digital signal processing and provided the the entire system design related.
