Voletarium Flying Theatre, Europa-Park

Unique figures of creatures within the Adventure Club of Europe

Brief 

The incredible Voletarium Flying Theatre attraction opened to guests in 2016 and tells the story of the Adventure Club of Europe (ACE). As guests wait for their turn on the ride, the queue line takes them through the ACE’s headquarters past the various artefacts and items their members have acquired. 

In 2017 Paragon Creative was approached by Europa-Park to create three unique creature figures to feature in a brand new queue area never before seen by guests. These figures were A 2.5m tall Yeti, a sabre toothed Fire Tiger and a Giant Chimpanzee Skeleton.

Our Commission

Both the Fire Tiger and Yeti were created by making a clay sculpt over a metal armature. Once the basic figures were produced, we created the real thing in GRP from a silicone mould, all supported by an internal steel frame. Particular detail went into sculpting the face of the Yeti and Fire Tiger. Paint and fur were then applied. The look of the figures were guided by reference images sent by Europa-Park, but our sculpting team were able to add their own creative flare to the creatures.

The Chimpanzee Skeleton was made in GRP (including a sculpted skull) with a mix of modified faux bones. All held together by a metal armature frame. All figures were then installed onto pre-constructed museum style plinths.

The figures now sit proudly in the brand new queue area for the ride creating a unique blend of theme park style fantasy with museum style reality and are sure to both intrigue, thrill and tower above guests as they discover the story of Voletarium and the Adventure Club of Europe in one of the resorts most cutting edge and beautifully realised attractions.
