Products and services for parks and attractions HARRINGTON A MOZART

by Illusion Projects Part of Illusion Projects' queue line entertainment program, Harrington A Mozart is an interactive character that can draw professional caricatures and engage park guests in conversation, stunts, gags and games. “We have resurrected an illusion that dates

back over 300 years,“ explains company founder Tim Clothier, “then updated and improved it, and added a great deal of whimsy as well as mobility so parks and attractions can position it wherever they want at any time.” Illusion Projects engaged Jim Henson’s Creature Shop to fabricate the Mozart puppet.


HYDRAULOPHONE by Splashtones

The Hydraulophone is, we are told, the world's first musical instrument that makes music from vibrations in water. Available as an aquatic installation for waterparks, museums, science centres and other public installations, it produces a rich, unique and soulful sound when a player touches, covers, or blocks its water jets. It is easy to play, and capable of a large repertoire of musical pieces. Splashtones Music is based in

Toronto, Canada. Existing Hydraulophone installations include Legoland California, Chicago Children's Museum and Ontario Science Centre. DRAGON'S BREATH by Technifex

This heat blaster is designed to safely release an intense blast of hot air with timed precision in dark rides and other attractions. Using compressed air and an industrial heat tube, it stays hot with a constant

Studio A blend of folk art, pop art and kinetic engineering, these colourful sculptures feature heads that move up and down in the wind, closely resembling an animal's natural manner. Displayed by sculptor Fredrick Prescott at November’s IAAPA Attractions Expo, he's hoping they will find a good home in theme parks, waterparks and other family attractions.

U-BUILD IT by Adventure Golf Services

Operators of small entertainment venues may be interested in this new mini golf kit which provides everything needed to build an 18-hole course to fit within a typical space of 112 x 64ft (34 x 19.5m). Selling for US$5,000, each kit comes with a budget spreadsheet, whereby the

owner can fill in the blanks based on local costs. AGS can then provide all things needed to build the course, such as sub-base material, putting turf, edge system, hole cups, concrete, props and obstacles. Depending on location, the final cost of construction could be around $50,000. “One of the difficult aspects of building a course,” notes Adventure Golf

Services (AGS) chief designer and CEO Arne Lundmark, “is the ability to layout the course while maintaining the same golf hole shapes, contours and topography.


low level of air flow. When activated by a programmable cue, an air knife that blocks the hot air flow turns off and a hot blast of compressed air shoots out the nozzle instantaneously. Just as quickly, the blaster can be de-activated and placed in “ready” mode awaiting the next trigger signal. “There is a definite need to recreate natural phenomenon such as

fire and heat in the themed entertainment industry,” notes Technifex president president and TEA founder Monty Lunde. “Using Dragon’s Breath heat blasters, we can now safely provide real heat to enhance simulated fire effects. It is the only special effect product available that provides an instant blast of intense heat.” The U-Build It kit includes precision cut mini golf putting turf to match the shape

of the golf holes. This streamlines and speeds up the construction process. For an additional fee, a custom layout to suit the owner’s site can be provided.
