New attractions from IE Park Group


The wide range of products available from the IE Park Group has been extended with the addition of a brand new attraction concept along with a new children’s attraction.

IE Park International srl has recently designed and built a revolutionary new sports based attraction, the Ice Mountain, for one of Italy’s most well-known and innovative travelling showmen, which offers three separate activities on one structure.

Showman Mr. Mauro Viviani has traditionally been involved in the operation of one of the country’s largest travelling roller coasters. However, recognising the need to also cater for today’s requirement for more adrenalin-filled, extreme activities, he created the idea of the Ice Mountain and began looking for an experienced, flexible company prepared to help him develop this exciting new project. And that is when he found his way to IE Park.

The Ice Mountain ride consists of a 45m x 11m half pipe shaped structure covered in artificial snow. It has a maximum height of 45m and participants will be able to enjoy a total of three different activities on the attraction – ‘Summer Tubing,’ rock climbing and a free fall drop experience.

The IE Park team has now developed this amazing new attraction which will travel on four trailers and is scheduled to make its debut at the Magic World in Naples for the 2012 season.

Also recently added to the IE Park srl product range is an interactive children’s ride, Fire Fighters, several examples of which have now been delivered. Each car on the ride is equipped with two water cannons, featuring a choice of either automatic or manual functions, with riders aiming the water at various effects/targets within three different centrally positioned scenes as the ride revolves.

Notably, the speed of rotation is very slow in order to provide adequate time for players to hit the targets and to enjoy the different scenes. Fire Fighters can be custom made to specific client requirements while optional extras available include additional cars, platforms and fences.

Commenting on these latest additions to the company’s continually expanding product portfolio, IE Park/SOLI Bumper Cars sales director Andrea Munari said: “We are very happy to announce the development of the Ice Mountain attraction and to report strong success with one of our most recent children’s rides, the Fire Fighters. The Ice Mountain attraction is something totally different to anything else currently on the market and I am sure will be a very successful attraction for Mr. Viviani, who entrusted IE Park with the task of bringing his dream to reality. And I am very proud of what our team of engineers and designers has achieved with this spectacular attraction.

“Likewise with the Fire Fighters ride, I am very happy that we have created yet another new and exciting interactive ride to complement our already extensive range of children’s attractions.”
