Amusement & Theme Parks

Designing a positive visitor experience

Day or night, amusement and theme parks delight visitors with exciting rides, games and activities enhanced by specialized audio, visual and lighting systems. Over time, these systems have advanced to such an extent that today’s amusement and theme parks incorporate visual effects, augmented reality, intricate soundscapes and innovative lighting designs. 

Implementing a modern and effective system calls for a professional design and installation team with the knowledge and expertise to deliver innovative, cohesive solutions. Illuminated Integration provides theme and amusement parks with extensive world-class turnkey solutions primed to encourage a positive visitor experience.

The Significance of Lighting, Audio, Video Solutions in Amusement and Theme Parks

Amusement and theme parks offer visitors an escape from regular life by entertaining, exciting and transporting them to different worlds. Both provide a host of rides, games and entertainment, but theme parks do so around a central theme, letting visitors immerse themselves in it. Each offers memorable encounters as visitors embark on multiple adventures within the park.

The  systems installed at these parks differ from those in standard entertainment setups. They play a significant role in bringing various attractions to life, often incorporating visual, sound and lighting effects, interactive elements and large-scale, bold accent lighting. Quality audio, video and lighting components have the power to support storylines and create a unique atmosphere, adding to the realism and impact for the visitor. 

Illuminated Integration offers tailored  solutions for:

  • Integrated systems: We offer wireless systems to integrate and coordinate audio, video, lighting, props, animatronics and more.
  • Lighting systems: Our lighting experts design and install dynamic color-changing lighting systems for rides, themed attractions, exterior spaces and more.
  • Audio systems: We provide optimized audio systems, including zone systems, for various park areas.
  • Visual systems: Our team implements first-class visual solutions, including large-scale LED screens, visual projections and augmented reality features.

Thematic Overlay Lighting

IllumiRay transforms any piece of architecture into an impressive art installation. From a warehouse to a roller coaster, Illuminated Integration has the expertise and flexibility to create a lasting impression on attraction guests and onlookers alike.

IllumiRay is an attraction lighting system that uses a specified range of lighting fixtures and their appropriate lenses paired with a simple architectural control system. IllumiRay offers various thematic overlays that transform physical structures into artistic lighting installations. The IllumiRay system offers a 5-year warranty on all parts, fixtures, and controls.

The IllumiRay system has been designed to work with throw distances up to 300′ from a single fixture and optic. The IllumiRay system allows washes and narrow up/down lighting. IllumiRay contains a simple to use touchscreen controller and software interface that can control an infinite number of fixtures, unlimited DMX universe outputs, and an unlimited number of preset scenes and sequences. Programming of these scenes and sequences are included in all IllumiRay quotations. IllumiRay’s control system can also be tied into other park-wide control systems and integrate with third party IP-based and contact closure based energy control systems. IllumiRay can also be integrated with other theatrical show control systems. The IllumiRay system can be shipped direct to clients and installed by others or a custom installation quote can be requested with installation services by Illuminated Integration.

Tyler and Mike from Illuminated did a superlative job with our Frederico Theater. They started the project soon after signing the contract, they met every deadline, they had no change orders, they communicated clearly and often and their training sessions were superb. We could not have asked for a better partner for Holy Ghost Prep’s Frederico Theater.
