Fun in the wild west

Future projections

Germany’s Fort Fun Abenteuerland has had an interactive theatre attraction from Triotech installed. The Canadian company’s XD Dark Ride, which won IAAPA’s Brass Ring Award for Best New Product in 2013, will serve as the regional theme park’s major new attraction for the 2015 season. The 16-seat FoXDome ride fits into the park’s American Wild West theming. Fort Fun will have access to Triotech’s library of exclusive interactive content movies. Keyword: TRIOTECH

Dataton’s Watchout multi-display software provided projection mapping on four landmark buildings in Riga, Latvia, as part of an annual festival. The Staro Riga Festival of Light attracted an estimated 500,000 visitors. System integrator Solaris, based in Saint Petersburg and Moscow, Russia, supplied Watchout systems and hardware for projection mapping on to the facades of the Astor Riga Hotel, Congress Centre, St Peter’s Church and the Academy of Arts during the five-day festival.

TOR Systems has been awarded a contract to implement its booking system at the Sky Garden attraction at the top of London’s newest skyscraper, 20 Fenchurch Street – dubbed the Walkie-Talkie. TOR’s Maxim system will be used to manage all bookings at the free-to-access Sky Garden, which occupies the top three floors of Rafael Vinoly’s 37 storey, 525ft skyscraper and offers stunning views.
