Europe, Middle East, Africa Quick Takes: Judge Dredd Lays Down the Law in London; Marveld Recreatie to Add Several iPlay Water Attractions in Netherlands
Judge Dredd Lays Down the Law in London
The creators of The Crystal Maze Live Experience will launch another live-action attraction named Judge Dredd Uprising: The Live Experience in London in spring 2021.
“This new show is insanely exciting,” says Tom Lionetti-Maguire, founder and CEO of Little Lion Entertainment. “The experience is part comic book, part sci-fi film, part immersive theater, part escape room, part action-adventure, and part indoor theme park, all wrapped into one.”
The 150-minute experience is inspired by Judge Dredd, the merciless lawman created by writer John Wagner and artist Carlos Ezquerra in the pages of the “2000 AD” comic series.
Players will find themselves in a post-apocalyptic London called Brit-Cit. After Judge Dredd discovers a dangerous plot, teams of five have to embark on a “fast, frenetic, and fun quest” to fight their way to freedom.
Judge Dredd Uprising features five zones of mental and skill-based challenges. Players will need to outwit the Iso-Cube and break out of the Iso-Block. They will have to navigate through Future Piccadilly Circus and its cast of mutants, droids, and gangsters. Players will battle through the Cursed Earth (laser tag) before reaching the finale in the New Old Bailey.
Jason Kingsley OBE, CEO of Rebellion, which owns the “Judge Dredd” intellectual property, says, “The world of ‘Judge Dredd’ is the greatest imaginative universe to come out of British comics, and we’re proud to bring it to ever-wider audiences. Every reader has dreamed of setting foot in a Mega-City, and with Judge Dredd Uprising: The Live Experience, they can do just that.”
Marveld Recreatie to Add Several iPlay Water Attractions in Netherlands
Marveld Recreatie holiday park in Groenlo, Netherlands, has teamed up with iPlay Water Attractions for its new water park extension in 2021. iPlay Water Attractions will introduce several new slides, including the new “Wild River” for Marveld Recreatie’s water park. Designed for indoor and outdoor operation, “Wild River” is designed to send guests through twists, turns, meanders, and splashes. With 2,000 cubic meters of water running through the attraction per hour, people can expect a refreshing ride. Wild River features iPlay’s Flume Seal Technology (FST), which creates a smooth and seamless slide. At over 100 meters long, the attraction is designed to add extra capacity and entertain the whole family.
iPlay Water Attractions will also supply a Space Bowl, a family slide, a speed flume, and a 350-square-meter spray park for the expansion.
“We want to thank owner Edwin Bomers and the Marveld team for their confidence in us,” says Simon Van Dijk, director/development manager at iPlay Water Attractions.
