Full steam ahead at Jardin d’Acclimatation


1, revealing 40 new attractions and 17 new rides in a freshly steampunk-styled park. The French multinational luxury goods conglomerate, LMVH Foundation, was awarded a 25-year lease by the Council of Paris, and leisure operator Compagnie des Alpes was brought on board as part of the deal as a shareholder. As part of its revitalisation, the 158-year-old Jardin d’Acclimatation has added a new Gerstlauer custom Bobsled Coaster – Speed Rockets. Themed to look like space-age shuttles zooming

through the park’s redwoods, Speed Rockets treats guests to 400m of track with dips, dives, twists and turns reminiscent of a Wild Mouse ride. For three minutes, Speed Rockets whizzes


through a 270° helix, twisted drop, an Immelmann turn, and a camelback at speeds of up to 45kmph on a track that’s one-of-a-kind in Europe. Touted as

a family ride, the coaster has a small turning radii and a lot of flexibility, meaning Gerstlauer were able to design a unique family attraction whilst not removing any of the park’s existing trees. The LVMH group has invested in the park in an attempt to become a contender for the market share currently dominated by Parisian giants like Disneyland Paris and Parc Astérix. 80% of Jardin d’Acclimatation is now owned by LVMH group, and the remaining 20% by Compagnie des Alpes, which will take over day-to-day operations. In addition to the new rides added over the


winter, work is also taking place at the park to renovate its surrounding landscape, with the aviaries being renovated and the planned addition of five themed areas. Jardin d’Acclimatation’s architecture and gardens are a huge part of its appeal – featuring 19th century designs with bronzes, coppers and girders (like in the Eiffel Tower) that blend the park’s steampunk and traditionally French identities.

SEPTEMBER 2018 15


The Rivière des Chèvres, or Goat River, is a mini flume ride by Reverchon that allows guests to meander along a gentle aquatic course through the park’s goat enclosure, before ending with a light thrill as the rafts make a splash landing.


In other Jardin d’Acclimation news, Alterface have been commissioned to develop a high-tech attraction at the park, alongside partner Jora Vision, which managed the design and building of the queue line, pre-show, and main theatre. Le Kinétorium is an interactive theatre where friends and family embark on a colourful challenge. Le Kinétorium centres around a plant invasion in an abandoned greenhouse as the result of a mad scientists’ invention gone wrong. Now, mutant plants are poised to invade Paris, and only visitors, seated on their steampunk scooters and armed with an energy weapon, can defend the capital. Alterface applied its newest media techniques to the project, including video mapping and projection, as well as the Salto! show control management solution and shooting technology.
