Ziggy's Blast quest
I promised you all a few weeks ago that when the dust had settled and we had reached the end of our busy Easter of entertaining I would write a blog about our involvement in the brand new ride Ziggy's blast quest at the Milky Way Adventure Park.
We were approached by the guys at the Milky Way back in January asking us if we would like to be involved in an exciting new project at the park. This would be a brand new lazer shooting ride experience called Ziggy's Blast Quest. The ride would take the children on an adventure through space, helping to protect planet earth from an impending meteor strike. Their challenge was to join Ziggy the Alien's Blast Force team and destroy as many of the meteors as possible. Sounds amazing doesn’t it?
As you can imagine we couldn’t wait to get started! We were asked to be involved in consulting and ideas, theming and sourcing and the design and building of props and scenery. Each area needed to tie in to the space theme and to be effective in a low light atmosphere. Our team created over sixty different shaped and sized meteors for the ride which needed to be lightweight in design and able to house an electronic light and sound target, supplied by Veqtor. Each meteor was created in our workshop before being sent to Silk crystal street art to have a UV special effects paint added prior to being installed into the ride. Our team was also involved in creating the spaceship scenery throughout the experience. Scenes needed were; Front Entrance, Loading Bay, Earth Base Zero, Hyper Launch Terminal, Blast Door Disaster, the Omega Station, Black Hole Vortex, Meteor Alley and Last Chance Final Mission. Each scene took approximately a week to design, create and build and all were completed on site.
With a tight dead line and a lot to be done, it was certainly a challenge, but one we were proud to be part of. The completed ride is awesome and I think the best part was being one of the lucky few that got to have a first go on it (strictly for testing purposes of course). Be sure to visit the Milky Way Adventure Park and have a go on Ziggy's Blast Quest... it really is out of this World!
Huge thank you to the management at the Milky Way for asking us to be involved in this project. Thanks also to Silk crystal street art, Veqtor, Corvus Design Services and Digital Illustration and Marten and the Milky Way crew. It was great to work with you all.
Until the next Marvellous Eventure my friends ........
