Le Kinétorium opens at Jardin d'Acclimation

Le Kinétorium features Alterface's latest shooting technology
Alterface has partnered with longtime collaborator Jora Vision to create a new interactive attraction at the Jardin d'Acclimation (JDA) in Paris.

Tasked with designing a ride that was in keeping with the park's theming, Alterface and Jora Vision created Le Kinétorium, an interactive dark ride that takes guests on a thrilling adventure through the abandoned greenhouse of a mad scientist, who has lost control of his creation, an army of mutant plants.

Visitors, aboard a steampunk-themed scooter, are tasked with stopping the mutant plants before they invade the streets of Paris.

The ride was project managed by Alterface and was brought to life with video and projection mapping. It features the company's Salto! Show control management solution as well as its shooting technology. While Jora Vision were responsible for the design and build of the queue line, pre-show and main theatre.

Benoit Cornet, founder and CEO of Alterface, says: "Le Kinétorium combines both technology and theming into a strong attraction for young and old. The capabilities of our shooting technology have allowed us to place some little 'gems', which, to my mind, are making a true difference. Digital targets have been created with projection mapping and we added in a few actuators with moving targets which are coming and going. This adds a challenge and more dimension to the game for the more advanced players."

"More than creating some sort of emotional overload," Cornet adds, "We have worked on fine-tuning the attraction and this is what is generating most of the fun. The attraction is a great addition to the Jardin d'Acclimations's offering."
