Plopsa - Holiday Park Germany
Fisheye constructed and programmed another Wickie Splash Battle theme park installation in Plopsa Group’s Holiday Park in Germany.
Wickie waterfun across Europe
Plopsa, the theme park division of Studio 100, consists of 7 theme parks, 2 water parks, 1 hotel, 1 theatre, 1 store & 1 campsite. Next to theme park venues in Belgium, The Netherlands and Poland, Plopsa Group is also the owner of Holiday Park in Hassloch, Germany.
It’s in this park another Wickie Splash battle was installed in the spring/summer of 2021, allowing more international visitors to enjoy a water spraying battle based on the character of Wickie The Viking.
Baseframes, CNC styrofoam & paint
Whether it’s coming up with homemade designs or realizing designs that are presented to us, our facilities and team include just about everything necessary to create unforgettable experiences. In this case team Plopsa briefed us on shapes, colors and designs, and team Fisheye went to work on actually producing all of these items.
From welding steel baseframes to shaping custom styrofoam sharks, boats, barrels and birds, all pieces of the puzzle were created in our headquarters in Wetteren, Belgium. Amongst many others our tools include a state of the art CNC tube laser, a 5-axis CNC cutting machine and a waterjet CNC machine.
Research & development
Mechanics & programming
Wickieland’s Splash Battle is a collection of multiple interactive scenes, including animatronics, rotating mechanical constructions and other watersensitive triggers. To ensure smooth sailing Fisheye’s technical team dove deep into the subject.
At our 5000 square meter headquarters we recreated the perfect circumstances to test each and every part of the installation. We constructed a rotating baseframe, a boat structure and added in house PLC-programming show controls.
