Puy du Fou is the well-known international historical theme park famous for its immersive experiences and spectacular shows. Based in France, the group has expanded operation to Spain, and soon, China and the United States.
The SAGA immersive show project is being built in the heart of historical Shanghai and will bring attendees back to the 1930s. The site covers more than 40,000 square meters (430,000 square feet) and will host more than 3,500 visitors per day. Guests will be immersed in a journey through time in an immense walkthrough experience, choosing their path with their friends and family through 26 possible routes.
“Puy du Fou is clearly a leader in their segment. They have a unique offering and are, quite simply, unparalleled at what they do,” said Ernest Yale, President and CEO of Triotech. He added “We are excited to be working with this world-class organization.”
“Puy du Fou visited our offices in Rennes, France, and we had very creative and fruitful discussions with our respective teams,” mentioned Christophe Lucchini, Managing Director for Triotech’s CL Corp Division.
“We are proud that our new ‘SAGA’ concept is coming to Shanghai. This is our first creation in China, which calls for other projects on which we are actively working with our French and Chinese teams. This new ultra-immersive concept in the heart of the city illustrates our ambition: to innovate and offer new thrills to the world,” said Nicolas de Villiers, President of Puy du Fou.
Triotech’s European Division CL Corp has been chosen to design and build seven dynamic platforms that will simulate a real-size train and other transportation vehicles with numerous special effects and media to transport visitors into the experience. Its proven pneumatic motion technology has already been used in several projects including the motion of a real aircraft for a WWII museum in France. Despite the challenges generated by travel restrictions in China, the Triotech teams were able to deploy the attractions leveraging its staff in that country where they have been active for over a decade.
