The Gruffalo River Ride

We have brought the story of The Gruffalo, one of the UK’s best-loved children’s stories to life at Chessington World of Adventures. We worked with Merlin, Magic Light, and scruffy Dog to design this re-working of the classic BubbleWorks ride. One challenge was to deliver the story on a ride with boats moving at unpredictable speeds – we used triggers and show control technology to dynamically deliver story voice over, video, lighting, atmospheric and animatronic effects to give every guest the best possible experience.
