The beauty of indoor water park lighting
The formula of Plopsaland is world famous and uses the popular characters of Studio 100 to create attractions in their associated leisure parks. In spring of 2015 Plopsaland built a water attraction in their De Panne leisure park and asked Painting With Light to design the lighting. The brief was to create an atmosphere matching the theme of ‘Wickie the Viking’ complete with a disco style ambience in the Olympic pool.
Because ‘Wickie the Viking’ ‘s scenery is a real winter setting, Painting With Light chose to work with subtle and understated lightsources. They also added some extra show effects to accompany the thunder and lightning. The goal was to enable a warm experience for visitors in a winter setting, Above the Olympic pool, a massive x ‘disco chandelier’ made from LED strings is installed to enhance the party atmosphere.
