Compagnie des Alpes has selected CL Corp to provide a 4D movie theatre for Parc Astérix in 2019.
The 300-capacity attraction at the park outside Paris will feature D-Box dynamic motion seats. A 450 square-metre room has been completely renovated and redecorated to make way for the theatre. Inside, audiences will be able to enjoy a custom made film called Attention Menhir! that will immerse Parc Astérix guests in the famous land of the Gauls.
The action will unfold on a 20 x 6m screen, as audience members take their places in 150 twin-seat modules. Programmed by CL Corp, the modules will be in total synchronisation with the film. There will also be six places for people with reduced mobility.
To make the experience even more exciting, special effects such as air blasts, wind, water jets and leg ticklers will keep spectators on the edge of the seats. These effects combined with the movement of the seat modules will give guests the impression they are part of the troop of the Gauls offering a fierce fight to Emperor Julius Caesar.
Simulators, flying theatres and more
Attention Menhir is the latest, and one of the largest, attractions from CL Corp. The French firm specialises in 4D theatres and dynamic motion platforms. Other products include the raft simulator Run The River, VR Explorer and The Birdy flying theatre. The company is also working on several other one-off projects in France, such as a simulator for Volcan de Lemptégy, set inside two train carriages, and a 4D cinema at Cité de l’Ocean in Biarritz.
