Since the acquisition of the CL Corp Division in 2019, Triotech completed several installations in Europe, passing the bar of 100 attractions in Europe in Spring 2022. The latest location to open is located at La Cité de la Voile Éric Tabarly in Lorient, France.
The attraction offers an immersive experience to visitors standing on pneumatic platforms with special effects discovering the sensations of a sailing race in the middle of the ocean.
Christophe Lucchini, managing director of Triotech’s CL Corp Division, said: “We have a strong track record in edutainment for museums, aquariums and tourist attractions. We knew our technology would transport visitors into the experience with this stand-up platform, giving them the sensation that they are standing up on a sailboat offshore in a storm.”
Part dynamic simulator, part flying theatre, this Triotech attraction features ten platforms of two people, as well as two dedicated positions for wheelchairs. Guests remain standing which greatly enhances the motion and immersion as they embark on a tour with twists and turns aboard a Vendée Globe sailboat. Special effects have been added to enhance the immersion of the Stand-up Theatre such as scents, blast, leg ticklers, water, and fresh wind.
Jean-Marc Beaumier, director at La cite de la Voile Éric Tabarly, said: “In 2021, La Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly and Lorient Agglomeration entrusted Triotech CL Corp Division with the development of the dynamic theatre of La Cité de la Voile in Lorient, offering visitors a virtual immersive experience on board an offshore racing boat. Throughout this project, we appreciated the constructive spirit, the responsiveness, and the skills of the teams. This collaboration results in an attraction with innovative technology and easy maintenance. The choice of standing platforms makes it possible to increase the capacity of the room (from 12 to 20 people) and to accommodate people with wheelchairs. The effects have also evolved with new boxes that include the diffusion of smells for a total experience. After a few weeks of operation, the feedback from our visitors is very encouraging and we are fully satisfied with this choice.”
