Holovis is a privately owned company
established in 2004. The company is unique
in having an in-house software development
team and a creative media and gaming division that work in unison to gamify new
and existing attractions, creating a whole new
level of guest experiences.
Main products and services
Recent patents and innovations from Holovis
include R3ex; a world-first VR experience that
combines real-time immersive visuals with
gesture-based interactivity, synchronised with
the dynamic motion of being onboard a giant
robot arm. This takes the thrill of the experience
to a whole new level when compared to other
onboard rides and VR attractions and gives
guests agency over their experience.
Another solution Ride And Realm gives
guests the tools to be able to choose
their own adventure then personalises the
experiences they have based on these
interactions. It begins with a media-based attraction that immerses people into the heart
of a story then continues with a park-wide
scavenger hunt customised based on the
decisions people make during the gameplay.
Holovis specialises in experiential design with its proprietary software RideView™
bringing data to life in high-end virtual reality
environments. Using desktop, VR or CAVEs,
teams are immersed in real-time data and
able to explore collaboratively in 1:1 scale.
This accelerates decision making, allowing
multi-disciplined teams to review, simulate
and interact together, enabling higher project
efficiently, cost and time savings.
Holovis provides complete turnkey solutions
with an experienced team of show producers,
engineers, creative and experiential design
experts. Driven through robust project
management processes and a dedicated
PMO, projects are de-risked by removing
unnecessary third-party requirements and
being directly responsible and accountable.
Flagship projects have included show
production, design and delivery of what’s in the
shed for Mystic Timbers at Kings Island, US,
and establishing a projection mapped show for
Fantasy Island, UK, which has been refreshed
with seasonal media changes, keeping guests
on-site longer and increasing spend per head.
The company has continued to deliver and
expand upon its Extended Experience, giving
guests agency to control and personalise their own park-wide adventure through the Battle
For Kings Dominion, US.
Where in the world?
Holovis works globally operating from offices
in the UK, USA, China and the Middle East.
Plans for 2018
Holovis will continue to develop Mixed
Reality platforms, leading the way with
solutions that extend and personalise the
experience to prolong and add value to the
guest visit. The team will also be expanding
its demonstration facilities in Orlando and
Shanghai, installing high-end virtual reality
CAVEs for visualisation of all projects and for
multi-team, in-depth development work to be
conducted on site in RideView™.
2018 trade shows
Holovis will be prominent at Asian Attractions
Expo, Euro Attractions Show and IAAPA
Attractions Expo. People can also visit the
Holovis Demonstration Campus in Lutterworth, UK, just 40 minutes from London.
