Spring has certainly sprung at the popular UK visitor attraction sites Chessington World of Adventures and the Museum of London, with the opening of two exciting new projects.
In March this year, the ‘Room on the Broom – A Magical Journey’ opened at Chessington World of Adventures. The ride features the characters from Julia Donaldson’s much-loved children’s book.
Audio-visual engineers for theme parks and visitor attractions Sarner were commissioned to carry out the creative and technical design of the new attraction, including the design, integration and programming of complex projection mapping, immersive multi-channel audio, theatrical lighting and other surprise special effects.
Sarner have also been busy working with the Museum of London Docklands on the design of Secret Rivers, the museum’s summer 2019 exhibition.
The exhibition will focus on the series of rivers, waterways and brooks, Londoners have been living next to for centuries. It will draw on the museum’s collection of archaeological artefacts, which will be displayed alongside art, photography and film to create an “evocative journey that will intrigue, surprise and immerse the visitor in the history and life of the rivers.”
The project comprises of seven different sections, in which visitors encounter both historical and contemporary object displays and interactive exhibits that compel them into London’s hidden and fascinating world of water.
To create the design for the exhibition, Sarner used a number of innovative techniques.
Sarner’s Designer, Rebecca Hayward, said:
“It has been a pleasure to work with the team at the Museum of London Docklands to create an exciting exhibition that encourages discovery and insight to London’s secret rivers and waterways”
