At this year’s IAAPA Expo Europe, experiential design firm FORREC will showcase several of its latest projects, including its recent work on the Mandai Bird Paradise wildlife reserve in Singapore.

Billed as the largest bird park in Asia, Mandai Bird Paradise occupies 17.3 hectares (42.7 acres) and offers a number of attractions including elevated walkways, waterfalls, indigenous huts, penguin enclosures and a bird show amphitheatre.

FORREC oversaw the park’s transformation, providing several key services including planning, design, documentation and interpretation, as well as theming and exhibition design.

Another featured project is the Analia Playlodge in Shanghai, China. A collaboration between FORREC, Hasbro and the Analia Entertainment Group , the project saw a disused mall transformed into a 20,000sq m (215,278sq ft) location-based entertainment (LBE) venue offering interactive games, escape rooms, theatres and a themed hotel.

FORREC created several attractions themed around various Hasbro IPs, including My Little Pony and Transformers, as well as themed hotel rooms, retail areas and interactive programming.

In addition, FORREC has teamed up with Mansion Entertainment Group on a new development in Oklahoma, US. Occupying 1,000-acres, the American Heartland Theme Park resort will feature a 320-acre RV park, a 125-acre theme park and a waterpark.

The theme park offering will include Americana-themed rides, family-friendly attractions, live entertainment shows, and a number of food and beverage venues. FORREC is one of several theme park designers working on the development, alongside THG, Cuningham, ADG Blatt and the Nadi Group, and will be responsible for creating three key areas including the hotel, water park and hero land.

FORREC will be located at booth A-933.
