The Smurfs

Smurfs enchant with passive magic wand

This patented technology brings a totally new dynamic to the way people interact with screens. It creates an interesting balance between the not so natural pure hand-gesture detection and the sophisticated circuitry brought by the interactive devices. The Smurfs are benefitting from something far more sophisticated and magical than other rides in its kind. Vehicles, lighting, video and audio integrate seamlessly for instant reactiveness. A variety of movements can be detected by an advanced approach of the magic wand tracking. The Smurf ride is opening a new era of interactivity with endless possibilities. The interactive technology is not the only distinctive element in the Smurf ride. The choice of the vehicles (4 people facing front) is bringing a special touch to the ride as well. The open front of the vehicle is exposing the players and therefore enhancing their immersion in the action while enabling cost savings on the decoration.
