Not far from Inytium, Walibi Belgium, one of the leading amusement parks of the famous Compagnie des Alpes, opened its new attraction, ‘Popcorn Revenge’, in May 2019.
This ‘Indoor – Dark Ride’ attraction was entirely designed and produced by the Wavre-based company Alterface, the world’s leading manufacturer of interactive attractions. The technological gem consists of an immersive trip through various themed cinema rooms where rebellious living popcorn invade the screens. This interactive battle between the public and these invaders plunges you into a 4D world full of twists and turns, directly linked to the results of your battle at time ‘T’.
Moreover, this technological feat won the prestigious TEA Thea Awards 2019 – Outstanding Achievement prize presented by the Themed Entertainment Association (TEA), during the annual attractions fair in Orlando.
This is a unique title rewarding the ‘Popcorn Revenge’ attraction for light, sound and image as well as for the innovative Erratic® Ride system used by Alterface, which consists of creating a dynamic attraction through total interactivity between the actions of the public, the results obtained and the non-linear trajectories of each car all along the scenographic route, with its many twists and turns.
Inytium is delighted and proud to have been able to contribute to the integration of various technologies, including the sound system employing the BOSE professional range.
In fact, no fewer than sixty BOSE professional speakers were supplied and unobtrusively integrated by Inytium. It was crucially important to blend them into the background as much as possible by using ingenious methods that efficiently ensure strong, even diffusion, high-quality reproduction of special sound effects and high-precision directivity.
One of these speakers, the Bose F1-812, provides variable cover in each of the cinema rooms thanks to its Flexible Array system, while the RMU206 takes care of the diffusion of surround sounds and the SMS118 DeltaQ and MB210 subwoofers provide the roundness expected of low frequencies as found in cinemas.
Many other speakers from the American manufacturer were also installed and the entire system is powered by PowerMatch PM8500N DSP multichannel network amplifiers providing a total of 20,000 watts available to all these speakers.
Our electro-acoustic studies and the wide range of Bose Professional speakers available enabled us to meet the project’s needs to the full.
