France’s Parc Spirou to feature three key rides from Simworx


As its global customer base continues to grow with the completion of a variety of projects at theme parks and other visitor attraction venues around the world, leading dynamic simulation attractions specialist Simworx has announced that it is to supply three major attractions to a brand new park scheduled to open in France in 2018.

Parc Spirou, which is currently under construction at a site in the area of Beaulieu in Monteux, close to Avignon in southern France, will bring to life the well-known comic strip character Spirou and his friends, popular with young children as well as parents and grandparents.

Simworx is supplying three key attractions to the theme park, all of which will incorporate the most recent technological developments available to provide Parc Spirou with the latest in cutting-edge, media-based attractions.

Dinosaur adventure
Among these will be an example of Simworx’s popular Immersive Tunnel. The ride features a 30-seat, tracked tram and is based on Simworx’s exclusively produced ride film, Dinosaur Island.

With a pre-show starring Spirou himself, the Immersive Tunnel is suitable for people of all ages. Following the pre-show, Spirou joins visitors on a jeep-styled simulator which – after a short journey along a track into the main show area – takes them on a fun-filled dinosaur adventure.

Also being provided by Simworx is an attraction based on the company’s highly dynamic, 6DOF, seven-seater Stargazer Motion Theatre. Themed around the Spirou character, four Stargazer units will be used in the attraction, which will take visitors on a madcap adventure with one of the Spirou characters, Gaston, an enthusiastic inventor who often ends up in trouble.

The third Simworx ride to be installed at Parc Spirou will be the very first example of the company’s AGV (Advanced Guidance Vehicle) dark ride, which takes the ride genre to a whole new level. With no track or power cables and vehicle acceleration that is unrivalled in the industry, the themed attraction will be based on an educational, amazing and magical story featuring Spirou and several of his friends.
