This year at IAAPA Europe Expo in Vienna, international themed attraction design company Katapult, will be showcasing their themed resort design expertise. For over 10 years, the UK-based team has worked on both new-build and existing themed resort projects, helping to bring a magical guest experience to destinations around the world.
As well as designing memorable hotel guest suites, the team has also worked to create inclusive water parks, themed restaurants, play areas and communal spaces across themed resorts and villages. Led by former Disney Imagineer Andy Sinclair-Harris, the design team is currently working on new IP-based themed resort design projects.
Speaking on the live projects in the studio, CEO & Co-Founder Dawn Foote said, “The confidential resort projects we’re working on are incredibly exciting. For us, our clients, and of course the future guests, these resorts will create a game changing experience that will set the tone for future resorts.”
“We’ve built a team capable of delivering resort projects, alongside the amazing work we do for theme parks, family entertainment centres and visitor attractions worldwide. Led by our Creative Director, former Disney Imagineer, Andy Sinclair Harris, we have a strong design team, with experience in creating destinations with both magic and practicality in mind.”
While in Vienna, Katapult’s Co-Founders Dawn and Phil will also be showcasing some of the recently completed themed attraction projects – including a theme park expansion project with UK attraction, ROARR!. The new park expansion features the theme park’s first ever rides.
They will also be sharing further details of their collaboration with Aardman Studios on the attraction concept, The World of Aardman. The turnkey concept launched at IAAPA Asia, features a studio experience, interactive elements, themed cafe, experiential retail and memory making opportunities with guest’s favourite characters – including Morph, Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep.
Vienna will also be the chance to discuss with Katapult their recent project with The LEGO® Group and Merlin Entertainments. LEGO® Creative Club will become a brand new area across new openings globally, after the successful launch at the pilot location in Brussels. Guests are encouraged to explore their imagination with a new play experience at the LEGO® Discovery Centre.
