One of the first implementations will be at Studios Occitanie Méditerranée. Alterface is partnering with leading video game publisher Ubisoft, along with Storyland Studios to launch the first ‘Ubisoft Entertainment Center’.
The Ubisoft multi-brand themed entertainment experience designed by Storyland Studios is the first in a series of centers that will immerse fans and newcomers alike in fully interactive worlds based on Ubisoft’s popular game franchises. “Working together, Ubisoft and Storyland Studios will be creating themed environments you can play. All thanks to Alterface, who developed this amazing technology”. Ben Thompson, Chief Strategy Officer and Head of Global Clients at Storyland Studios.
“But Wander is not only about activating Theme parks. It is completely scalable and the ideal product to empower any place, from small venues up to the largest theme park.” says Stephane Battaille, CEO of Alterface.
Another implementation of the Wander will be in an educational project in the Dierenrijk zoo in the Netherlands.

Something that really adds value to a guest’s day in the park.
