PUZZLING WORLD adds even more to the mix

October 26, 2013 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

Yet another series of eye-catching developments at Wanaka’s Puzzling World have just been unveiled to help the business continue to offer world unique entertainment to its many visitors.

In what’s been described as the first permanent versions seen in New Zealand, a Holoboxx Holographic display has been added to the Hologram Hall while further into the Illusion Room complex a state-of-the-art Virtual Assistant is now on hand to guide visitors through the rooms.

The large Holoboxx display offers viewers a 3-sided, 270˚ cabinet containing a slowly rotating world globe that has the built-in capability of being spun by the user. “Having the gesture control element included was an important feature for us as we like our customers to not only see the illusions but also interact with them as well”, Marketing Manager Duncan Spear said.

A life-size female acrylic cutout is also a new feature within the rooms that via a blu-ray player, the latest projection system and speaker elements brings a state-of-the art presentation to the customers.

Shotz Productions from Auckland was approached by Puzzling World’s General Manager Heidi Landsborough 18 months ago when the business decided to upgrade all areas of the Illusion Rooms to complement their brand new Sculptillusion Gallery development. “I’d searched the web initially to find a replacement to our TV demonstration video and when I found a freestanding option I knew my brief to find that “wow factor” had been met. The European company luckily had a NZ agent who introduced me to not only the Virtual Assitant but also the Holoboxx and we went from there!” says Heidi.

2013 has been an incredibly busy time for the business as they complete improvements in every area of the attraction including the front façade, where the iconic Tumbling Towers are currently being given a facelift in time for the busy summer season.

What’s next for 2014? the management are tight-lipped but say there’s plenty more ideas to be explored as they head into their fifth decade.
