Project Description

Pulsar, AV Development

Walibi Belgium, 2016

In June 2016, Walibi Belgium opened a new launch shuttle water rollercoaster, Pulsar. The Leisure Expert Group was asked to come up with technological solutions for this new attraction’s queue-line. The overall theme of the queue was to combine different energy elements to results in the launch of the attraction. We installed all the lighting, sound and video effects in the queue line, both pre-shows and the boarding station, to support this theme. All the lighting effects have been synchronised with the visuals and sound in such a way that it results in a truly spectacular experience.

Queue techniques

Throughout the creative process, we made sure the engineers were completely involved as they had most knowledge about the techniques possible within the theme. This resulted into the simulation of a real energy reactor with a pulsing heart, which appears to provide the entire attraction with energy. The discharge of this energy, from the heart to the ride-vehicle, takes place during the ride’s launch.
