Themeing and design specialist Meticulous has completed high profile contracts at several attraction venues in both the UK and Sweden ahead of the 2011 season.
At Drayton Manor Theme Park in England, the company won the tender to carry out all the internal theming on the new Ben 10 - Ultimate Mission family coaster, specifically in the queue line area.
In total, three different environments make up the interior of the entrance and the queue line area of the ride - a dynamic recreation of Asmuth's Laboratory, the Decontamination Chamber and the Alien Chamber.
In the first area of the queue line, Asmuth's Laboratory, guests are introduced to Asmuth, the creator of the Omnitrix which is used by Ben to transform himself into a range of different aliens. The area incorporates interactive screens, through which kids learn about the mission they will be undertaking when they ride the coaster.
A funky Decontamination Chamber comes next, followed by the dramatic Alien Chamber which successfully brings the animated series to life, even for those not familiar with Cartoon Network's Ben 10.
The theming work totally immerses guests in Ben 10's world with life-size alien characters, props, interactives and decoration, including laser beam blasts and lighting effects, all created by Meticulous.
At the Natural History Museum in London, Meticulous has completed work on a travelling dinosaur exhibition - Age of the Dinosaur - for which the company was commissioned to create two immersive environments, one Jurassic and one Crustaceous.
Plants and trees, made using special moulds designed from drawings of tree bark from the time, muddy landscaping and other related themed elements ensure the dinosaur figures are seen within carefully detailed and realistic environments.
Additionally, continuing a long-standing creative relationship the company has with Liseberg in Sweden, Meticulous was recently contracted to provide all the 3-D entrance signage for the park's new AtmosFear tower ride.
