French theme park operator Puy du Fou has made its debut in Asia with the launch of an immersive theatre experience in Shanghai.

Transformed from an existing 250,000sq m (2.7 million sq ft) building, the 250,000m² SAGA City of Light offers an experience rooted in local Chinese history, legends and heritage.

The show has been supplied by guest experience and technology specialists Triotech, with Puy du Fou utilising the company’s advanced offerings to produce its unique brand of immersive storytelling.

The attraction features seven dynamic platforms designed and built by Triotech, simulating a real-size train and other vehicles. With numerous special effects, guests are transported back to the 1930s, exploring historical Shanghai across a 40,000sq m (430,000sq ft) space. Featuring 26 possible routes, attendees are able to travel through time with the experience, which features more than 150 performers, lasting around two hours.

“Triotech's teams demonstrated great professionalism throughout the project,” said Joseph Corbo Courtemanche, COO and executive producer of Puy du Fou Asia.

“Their expertise in dynamic platforms is a valuable asset to the SAGA project. There is no doubt that visitors will appreciate the experience.”

According to Puy du Fou’s president, Nicolas de Villiers, the launch of SAGA City of Light is only the start for the company’s Chinese ambitions, with the live show to be followed by the construction of theme parks in other cities.

“China’s huge population makes it the ideal first market for us in Asia and its 5,000-year civilisation along with numerous beautiful cities means no shortage of great locations,” he said.

“Targeting local Shanghainese residents, like families, we believe the brand can bring our own storytelling know-how in the immersive experience, which can create something unique, like an adventurous walk-through show.”
