Triotech and BoldMove Nation’s new attraction, Champi’Folies, has opened at Le PAL theme park in France. The interactive media-based dark ride features the Smash & Reload attraction with TooMush theming. A selection of international bloggers and journalists attended the VIP opening on May 8 to share the experience with the market and their fans.
With more than 1000 animals and 31 attractions Le PAL is based in the heart of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, and recognized as one of the leading theme parks and zoos in France. The addition of Champi’Folies further cements its reputation as a must-visit destination for families. This new exciting attraction combines an immersive and interactive storyline with thrilling action and impressive theming. Guests will be taken on an unforgettable journey through a world filled with the hilarious TooMush characters.
Arnaud Bennet, president of Le PAL, comments: “Champi’Folies introduces a new ‘species’ that speaks to the heart of our visitors, who are warmly embracing these cute TooMush characters. It is a pleasure to see that young and old enjoy this immersive experience side by side in a friendly competition. The attraction offers a seamless transition between the theme and animal park, re-energizing this park area with a weatherproof attraction. We are really pleased with the cooperation, which results in a high-quality and fun attraction with rich theming.”
The launch of Champi’Folies marks a significant milestone for Triotech and BoldMove Nation. The collaboration between these two leading firms has resulted in a ride that is a hit with guests of all ages.
BoldMove’s CEO Benoit Cornet has been the driving force behind Smash & Reload, making sure his creative concept shapes up just the way it is intended: “We’re thrilled with the result of Champi’Folies. Our creative concept has been fully realized, and our teams created an amazing ride that surpasses our expectations. We’ve blended physical and digital worlds to create a memorable experience for guests, and we’re proud to have worked closely with our partners to create an attraction that’s truly world-class. We bring the characters alive on screen, and together with our partner Polymorph we added Artificial Intelligence to personalize guest experiences. Cherry on the cake is the extensive theming we created with 3D decoration up to a real car, all of these reflecting their digital counterparts.“
Ernest Yale, Triotech CEO, added: “Our teams worked closely together to deliver a ride that is unique to the market with a high thrill level on a very small footprint. We had to be smart with our technology approach so we could make optimum use of the space for the ride. We leveraged Triotech’s technical and design know-how and worked diligently to synchronize media, hardware, software, and theming, in close cooperation with the team at Le PAL.“
Guests can now experience Champi’Folies at Le Pal and discover the thrilling world of the TooMush characters for themselves. The group-play combined with the friendly competition to get the highest score encourages replayability of this new family-oriented attraction.
