Blooloops Innovation Awards & V-Expo Oct 2021


Together the Blooloop Innovation awards & V-Expo Celebrate The Innovations that Drive Change

We are delighted to enter Blooloop's Innovation Awards. The awards celebrate and highlight outstanding innovation in the visitor attractions business. After a hugely testing year Frontgrid have responded to the pandemic with vivacity and exuberance.

The team have worked hard to bring a newer model, called POD to market. It's a compact version of the original RIZE which makes the experience accessible for more venues, including in-foyer entertainment. ParadropVR can be operatorless, via a touchscreen kiosk.

The new Discover Series of games, allows flyers to select their own character and enables guests to collect points as they soar through hoops in the sky. 

The creation of custom content for clients, such as bespoke environments, characters, canopies and gamification features draws a huge audience.  

The winners for the innovation awards are due to be announced Tuesday 5th October, 2021
