BoldMove is set to make its IAAPA Expo trade show debut, with the media-based attractions developer hosting its first booth at this year’s show.

The move comes following a promising few years for the company, which has included three successful IAAPA Expo Europe events, as well as the opening of Champi'Folies, a dark ride attraction developed in partnership with Triotech, at French theme park and animal attraction; Le Pal.

Celebrating its first-time presence at the show, the company is launching a new IP targeting the US and international markets at the expo.

Called VooDoo Festival, the IP transports guests to a Mardi Gras-themed fun fair where voodoo dolls are being brought to life by a mysterious curse. Riders must fling good luck bags at the dolls in order to break the spell and save the festival.

The IP is designed for BoldMove’s Smash & Reload dark ride attraction, which offers an immersive experience within a compact footprint and can accommodate up to 430 riders per hour. It combines customisable media content, which can be adapted for seasonal events such as Halloween or Christmas, with competitive gameplay to encourage repeat visits.

The ride is also available as both a thrilling nighttime attraction and a daytime family-friendly experience and, according to BoldMove, can be used as a standalone, ticketed experience or as part of a wider attraction such as an FEC or theme park.

“Visitors want to embark in a fun environment and get fully submersed in an engaging experience they can enjoy with their friends and family. Our creative process starts with this in mind, designing and synchronising all required ingredients to create a successful attraction for each venue and audience,” said BoldMove CEO Benoit Cornet.

In addition, BoldMove will be exhibiting its entire line-up of media-based attractions, including its immersive AR walkthrough Raptor Expedition attraction, which blends AR technology with themed sets to create a living videogame. As well as its new Fusion midway dark ride concept, which features a candy factory theme and utilises technological innovations such as interactivity, gameplay and artificial intelligence.

BoldMove will be located at booth #864
