Exhibitor comments on the quality of visitors at this year’s EAS exhibition were positive and many told InterPark they felt "encouraged" by the show.

Elton Games, based in the UK, took two stands to showcase its brand new Aquatic Dark light game and its new fully automated pirate themed gold cup with both products receiving positive interest from visitors to the stand.

Another UK company to showcase its products was Rainbow Productions. Costume characters such as the flamboyant Falcon greeted visitors to the stand – demonstrating the unique moving mouth and blinking eye technology, which allows park mascots to sing or speak to guests and enhance the overall visitor experience.

According to Rainbow’s sales and marketing director Simon Foulkes, this year’s EAS was well organised and Amsterdam was a suitable and easily accessible location for visitors. "The location is probably a big factor in the high quality of leads we came away with," he said. "We already have a strong presence in the Netherlands and we exhibited as a way of aiming to consolidate this, as well as to expand our European client base."

Clostermann Design presented its new attraction, Alien Idol, which is modelled on the famous superstar TV shows ‘Alien Idol’ and asks ‘spirited singers’ to prove their talent in front of three grouchy alien animatronics. After every performance, the relentless remarks are headed by the tight-lipped and rigourous toad lady.

Commenting on visitor reaction at the show Matthias Clostermann told InterPark: "Alien Idol was drawing a lot of attention at the fair. Everybody was taking a closer look when our aliens invited the crowd to sing, although only a few brave ones actually sang with us."
