Heidi The Ride is due to open 1 April 2017 at the heart of Heidiland in Plopsaland
A new wooden coaster set to debut at Plopsaland theme park in Belgium next April has become something of a work of art in its own right.

Painting with Light has designed a light display specifically for Heidi The Ride, a €6m (US$6.4m, £5.1m), 71kph wooden coaster by Great Coasters International. Light and colour illuminates the intricate structure of Heidi The Ride, which is made from nearly 60km of wood.

The lighting scheme can be considered in three sections. The first lights up the structure from inside, the second focuses on the external structure with fixtures fitted up the sides and the third layer of lights is placed to draw attention to the peaks and troughs of the rides.

“It was a really amazing honour to be invited to light this beautiful and intricate structure,” said Painting with Light’s Luc Peumans. “The interesting shape immediately evoked a range of different lighting treatments.”

Peumans and his team used Chauvet’s Iluminarc architectural range.

“The whole Iluminarc range is ideal for exterior illumination projects like this,” said Peumans. “With the floods, lines and small pods there is a great choice for filling lots of different areas and spaces. For continuity of colour, output, etc, we wanted to use just one manufacturer.”
