The latest installation of its European Division CL Corp is located in France at La Cité de la Voile Éric Tabarly
Since the acquisition of the CL Corp Division in 2019, Triotech completed several installations in Europe, passing the bar of 100 attractions in Europe in Spring 2022. The attraction offers an immersive experience of competing in a sailing race in the middle of the ocean through pneumatic platforms with special effects.
“We have a strong track record in edutainment for museums, aquariums and tourist attractions. We knew our technology would transport visitors into the experience with this stand-up platform, giving them the sensation they’re standing up on a sailboat offshore in a storm,” reported Christophe Lucchini, Managing Director of Triotech’s CL Corp Division.
Part dynamic simulator, part flying theater, this Triotech attraction features ten platforms of two people, as well as two dedicated positions for wheelchairs. Guests remain standing which greatly enhances the motion and immersion as they embark on a whirlwind tour with twists and turns aboard a Vendée Globe sailboat. Special effects have been added to enhance the immersion of the Stand-up Theater such as scent, blast, leg ticklers, water, and fresh wind.
“In 2021, La Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly and Lorient Agglomeration entrusted Triotech CL Corp Division with the development of the dynamic theater of La Cité de la Voile in Lorient, offering visitors a virtual immersive experience on board an offshore racing boat. Throughout this project, we appreciated the constructive spirit, the responsiveness, and the skills of the teams. This collaboration results in an attraction with innovative technology and easy maintenance. The choice of standing platforms makes it possible to increase the capacity of the room (from 12 to 20 people) and to accommodate people with wheelchairs. The effects have also evolved with new boxes that include the diffusion of smells for a total experience. After a few weeks of operation, the feedback from our visitors is very encouraging and we are fully satisfied with this choice,” stated Jean-Marc Beaumier, Director at La cite de la Voile Éric Tabarly.
Inaugurated in 2008 in the heart of the village of businesses linked to boating and the international offshore racing center of Lorient, the Cité de la Voile Éric Tabarly has since become the emblem of the “Sailing Valley”. The Cité de la Voile makes offshore racing a sensory experience. A showcase for the nautical sector, it relies on the latest technologies to be the benchmark for the scientific and technical culture of sailing and ocean racing to offer a fun and dynamic course for the whole family.
