Leisure Expert Group, formally Jora Entertainment, is a leading designer of attractions and horror experiences. The firm has created a brand new Walking Dead® attraction for Movie Park Germany. The Walking Dead Breakout is the company’s first branded horror offering.
Marjolein Smids, Project Manager at Leisure Expert Group, said the attraction had been designed in collaboration with Movie Park Germany and AMC.
“For us this is a dream project, we are all big fans of The Walking Dead® and to bring the series to life is already one of the highlights of this year!”
Walking Dead, a Dream Project
According to Leisure Expert Group, AMC insisted on a perfect replica of the series which, the company says, created enormous challenges. Well-known ‘Walkers’ were copied 1 on 1 from the series. Even small items such as food cans and wrappers had to be identical to those used in the programmes.
The Walking Dead® Breakout opened at Movie Park Germany on 19th June 2016.
Also open this month is a new immersive experience, Pulsar, at Walibi Belgium.
Leisure Expert Group collaborated on the creation of the attraction. It simulates an energy reactor with a beating heart at its core.
The company used state-of-the-art lighting and projection techniques, synched with video content and sound effects, in the queue line, both pre-shows and the boarding station.
