Parkworld Excellence Awards Nominations

We are proud that 3 of the projects we’ve worked on this year have made it into the final round of the ‘Parkworld Excellence Awards’. Tweestryd was nominated for best family ride of the year, THIS IS HOLLAND for best media-based attraction and Excalibur for best water ride. Congratulations to our clients on this sign of recognition by the industry of our great combined efforts!

Excalibur: Secrets of the Dark Forest, best water ride

After having worked with Movie Park in 2016 on the Walking Dead®: Break out Haunted maze, Leisure Expert Group has designed another new experience at the park in 2018. The 1998 built rapid river ride is now reimagined as ‘Excalibur: Secrets of the Dark Forest’ after being already renamed once to Mystery river and originally built as a Neverending Story themed ride.

THIS IS HOLLAND, best media-based attraction

From the heart of Amsterdam, THIS IS HOLLAND presents a unique flying experience that will show you the Netherlands from a whole new perspective. Leisure Expert Group was closely involved with this project from the very start. Together with the client, we developed the concept, schematic and detail design of the attraction. During the construction and installation were also responsible for the in-field art direction as well as the technical production.

Tweestryd, best family ride

Together with the Creatives at Wildlands, we created a concept that tells riders the stories about coal mines and teach them how they affect nature, wildlife and humans. Luckily the dangers of coal mining are not affecting the Serenga at Wildlands anymore, as the mine has been closed an rebuild into a spectacular rides for visitors in which they have to race each other to gather donations for the ActionAid organization.
