One of the most memorable projects that combined education and entertainment was at Kongeparken in the Gjesdal Municipality, Norway, which is known for its entertaining and educational rides. This cool theme park used Koolfog fire effects in its “Barnas Brannstasjon” (Children’s Fire Station) ride. Children learn what firefighters do when a house is on fire and help put out the fire using water jets. Working closely with the GW Group we created a rolling fog that makes for a realistic fire scene. Kids and adults alike are continually delighted with the results. The park was awarded at the 18th Annual THEA awards for its achievement on a limited budget. The committee that awarded the park said,
The GW Group produced a complement of special effects for Barnas Brannstasjon (Children’s Fire Station), the newest attraction at regional theme park Kongeparken, in Stavanger, Norway. Barnas Brannstasjon immerses children ages 4-9 in meaningful role-play while teaching principles of fire safety and teamwork in an authentic setting.
That authentic setting couldn’t be created without the help of Koolfog’s fire effects. We were excited to help create such an informative and fun attraction!
