Drone Interactive, a specialist in drone-based attractions, has raised €1 million to finance the industrial and commercial take-off of ARCADRONE.
Drone Interactive has announced a successful round of fundraising for ARCADRONE, with committed and qualified investors in the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes (ARA) region backing the industrial and commercial launch of the products.
The transaction, which was completed in November 2020, brought together capital investors from Regional Business Angels associations and private investors federated by Incit’financement, a pool of banks made of Bpifrance, CERA (Caisse d’Epargne Rhône Alpes) and BNP Paribas, the ARA Region as well as the Réseau Entreprendre Isère.
A unique drone flying experience
The successful fundraising efforts will now allow Drone Interactive to deploy ARCADRONE in Europe.
ARCADRONE is a unique drone flying experience where four players gather around a drone arena, which features an ultra-efficient, anti-collision system to guarantee a safe, crash-free activity. ARCADRONE’s arcade-style piloting is easy to take part in, and is, therefore suitable for a range of players, from young children to great-grandparents.
It has been designed as a multigame platform, so it can provide an endless renewal of experiences to keep visitors returning for more. It includes the well-received drone battle game, RotorPunch, which showcases spectacular moves in 3 dimensions. Based on the “easy to play, hard to master” principle, regular players will be able to develop team strategies and break the highest score.
ARCADRONE transforms drone flying into a unique fun experience with immersive, interactive, and original games.
Earlier this year, Drone Interactive announced that it was bringing ARCADRONE to the Fun Planet Family Entertainment Centre in Rennaz, Switzerland. This follows the installation of the first ARCADRONE near Lyon.
The company is accepting European orders for ARCADRONE and has extended its current special offer for first-time orders to the end of 2020, in reaction to the global pandemic.
