Lappset Creative, a leading provider of themed and branded activity attractions, has announced the launch of its new Lappset Creative Discovery online workshop and to celebrate is offering the first five customers free-of-charge access.

This is an ideal opportunity for brands looking to renovate or extend an existing attraction, or to open a new attraction. It will also suit those looking for new ways to support their primary business.

Enhancing retail with themed attractions

Themed attractions can help operators to transform retail spaces into fun, memorable experiences that customers will want to return to again and again. However, this usually involved dealing with a number of different service providers before the dream can become a reality, including consultants, design studios, project managers and suppliers.

Lappsett Creative offers something different by providing all these services under one contract. Now, for a short time, the Finnish studio is giving the first five customers, with an initial plan of more than 200m2 indoor or outdoor themed play area, access to the Lappset Creative Discovery online workshop, completely free of charge. The value of the workshop is €5,000.

This turnkey partner has a great deal of expertise in delivering financially viable, safe, and immersive themed attractions, meaning operators can provide their customers with enjoyable family experiences.

A five-step approach

The Lappset Creative Discovery online workshop features five key steps, spanning two weeks.

Firstly, participants will meet via Teams, where the Lappset Creative team will get to know their business, learning about the budget, location, and goals of the project. Following this, step two will see the creation of 1-2 different concepts from the Lappset team, based on the initial information received, such as the 2D layout and the estimated budget per square metre.

Step three is an idea checkup, where the client and the team will look at the progress of the chosen concept, and then ideation continues in step four. Finally, step five will see the finished concept idea presented to the client.

Introducing Lappset Creative

Lappset Group Ltd. was founded in Finland in 1970. This family-run company is a leading supplier of activity equipment, with subsidiaries in China, Estonia, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden and the US. It has factories in three countries and a network of resellers covering around 60 countries across Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Canada.

Lappset Creative is Lappset Group‘s themed activity attractions design & turnkey solution studio. It has worked on a number of successful projects, such as the pirate ship playground at Pirate Island Hotel in LEGOLAND Deutschland’s Holiday Village.

Here, to match the theme of the hotel, Lappset Creative modelled the entire play area on a pirate island, including a huge wooden pirate ship (pictured, top).

“The design process went smoothly, and the outcome was a good balance between functionality, play value, capacity and theming,” says Asko Alanen, Concept Manager at Lappset Creative.

“The overall design fits excellently with the IP owners, requirements, and budget. Our technical design and manufacturing took about 12 weeks and the installation 3 weeks. The handover was on the 2nd of February 2018. Legoland’s team did great work and provided marvellous LEGO Pirates props/characters, which are now attached to the Pirate Ship’s bow.”

For a long-lasting, natural and sustainable project, Lappset Creative used pressure-treated and painted timber made from Nordic PEFC certified pine, grown slowly in Finnish Lapland. Meanwhile, the ship’s 11-metre high masts are made of powder-coated steel with printed fabric sails.

“We selected and used the best materials for each use considering functionality, durability, visual design and safety,” says Tero Puotiniemi, Senior Concept Designer of Lappet Creative.

Lappset Creative has also designed and created a series of Moomin-themed activity parks and playgrounds.
