Attraktion! already has more than a dozen PLAYOKE Dance systems under contract, including two with educational content for a major information technology & communication experience center being developed in Riyadh, by the government of Saudi Arabia.
Vienna – Attraktion! GmbH will present its PLAYOKE Dance product to European entertainment markets at IAAPA’s Euro Attractions Show, taking place from 18th to 20th September at the Port de Versailles Convention Centre in Paris. PLAYOKE Dance is said to be the first interactive dance game of its kind, using 3D group motion tracking and designed specifically for out-of-home commercial use. Attraktion! will introduce PLAYOKE Dance at EAS (booth #2106) to show its applicability to theme parks, family entertainment centers, science centers and other leisure facilities.
At the heart of PLAYOKE Dance is the pioneering application of 3D motion tracking to groups. Movements and steps of players are tracked, analyzed and compared in real time. The immediate feedback, combined with a system of points and ranking, adds a competitive element and a challenge designed to make the experience more entertaining and satisfying. PLAYOKE Dance offers multi-faceted content options which provide entertaining and “edutaining” experiences for kids, teens and adults. Operators of indoor amusement venues can offer customized experiences such as dancing to famous pop music videos, interacting with animated mascots, or playing edutainment games.
“Attraktion! is continually growing its portfolio of products and services, and PLAYOKE Dance has been a milestone for the company since it was first introduced in spring of this year,” says Attraktion! Managing Director Markus Beyr, a leisure sector entrepreneur who has realized some 200 attractions over two decades in the business. Attraktion! already has more than a dozen PLAYOKE Dance systems under contract, including two with educational content for a major information technology & communication experience center being developed in Riyadh, by the government of Saudi Arabia.

PLAYOKE Dance can be experienced at the Euro Attractions Show (EAS) in Paris between 18th and 20th of September, in Hall 5 at booth #2106. Markus Beyr is available for meetings during EAS.
