Interactive motorsport simulator company to exhibit at RAAPA Expo in Moscow

Cruden B.V. will exhibit at this month’s Russian Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (RAAPA) Expo (March 23-25, 2011; All-Russian Exhibition Centre, Moscow). The global supplier of professional, interactive, motion simulators for both industrial and attraction markets will attend as part of the EntEx stand (no. C8). EntEx is a local entertainment equipment distributor company.

“We are very excited about formally introducing the Russian and CIS countries’ attractions industries to our range of full motion simulators, ” says Frank Kalff, Cruden’s commercial director. “We are already selling simulators to private customers in Russia and are convinced of the appetite for performance driving and motorsport-themed experiences among the general public. Our partnership with EntEx for this event shows we intend to approach Russian theme parks, malls and family entertainment centre in a professional manner. All marketing material and sales support will be provided in Russian and our experts will be on hand to talk to visitors with the assistance of a translator.”

Cruden will promote its full motion (six ‘degrees of freedom’) Hexatech and Hexathrill simulator ranges. Hexathrill is the company’s most recent simulator for the entertainment market, and is a lighter, more flexible version that uses less floor space and is much easier to locate and install. In addition to the standard, single-seat configurations, both product families are available with Formula-style cockpit bodies or with full Formula One cars integrated to the motion base. The Hexatech 3CTR, with three seats, is a simulator designed to increase guest throughput and allow a passive ride and interactive drive, simultaneously.
