Project Description

Movie Park Studio Tour, Dark Ride Design

Movie Park Germany, 2021

For their 25th anniversary, Movie Park Germany wanted to celebrate with opening a major new signature family attraction at the park. After having worked with the park before on PAW Patrol: Adventure Bay, Excalibur: Secrets of the Dark Forest and The Walking Dead: Breakout, Leisure Expert Group was again asked to support with the concept and design development for this new ride.

The ride pays hommage to the old studio tram tour that operated at the park in the beginning, but with a new twist. Guests will travel along various sets of movie magic before they find themselves on a multi-dimension SFX coaster by Intamin.

The ride was developed in close collaboration with Movie Park’s creative team and parent company Parques Reunidos. The decors were constructed by P&P Projects and the media production is executed by IMAscore & IMAmotion.

Dark ride storyboard

An experience that is a hybrid of a coaster and a dark ride requires a well balanced experience. We started the design proces by creating a storyboard of the intended experience. This gives an impression of all scenes and movements within the ride and how guests will interact with these scenes.

3D Model

We developed the full set, technical and AV design in 3D. This was proven necessary as the show building, ride safety envelope, décor and techniques had to be integrated in a single design package. This enabled theming and SFX contractor P&P Projects to produce décor elements to specifications off-site and seamlessly integrate them again on-site. Overall, this accounted for a realization within the intended schedule.

Land of Legends

Bobbejaanland

Land of Legends is a unique new themed area at Bobbejaanland with a completely new coaster, yet it is also an upgrade of some existing rides to the current thematic standards within the European theme park industry.  The area shows the potential of taking a birdseye view and think outside the scope of the new ride itself and then explore the possibility to upgrade other rides in the park as well, in order to create a brand new themed area.  Having worked with Movie Park before on ‘Walking Dead®: Breakout’ and ‘Excalibur: Secrets of the Dark Forest’, we were asked to help with the redevelopment of a distant corner in Nickland.
