Polanco, Mexico City, Mexico
Playing soccer with robots, hang gliding through the sky, and driving on virtual racetracks are just some of the technologically interactive experiences offered at Mexico City’s Inspark.
“It’s a place for the whole family where guests can find technology-based entertainment unlike anywhere else,” says Production Manager Oscar Ojeda. “You will live experiences of virtual reality (VR), mixed reality video mapping, and digital art.”
The 1,100-square-meter digital entertainment park inside Plaza Carso offers 30 immersive experiences, incorporating technologies such as simulators, robotic lights, surround sound, and mega screens. Before opening Inspark in April 2018, the park’s founders traveled around the world for two years, researching the market and technology to bring to “the park of the future,” Ojeda says.
Guests are equipped with colored wristbands used to access Inspark’s attractions and keep track of their experiences. Visitors can choose the attractions they’d like to enjoy but are limited to 110 minutes inside the park.
Inspark’s “Color and Music Show” is a multisensory, interactive show that blends robotics and laser technology to explore the relationship between different hues and sound. For the 20-minute show, guests step into a large room, where they are surrounded by ever-changing video projections on the walls and flashing spotlights that rain down colorful lights from the ceiling.
The “VR Cabins” attraction offers several experiences from which visitors can choose, including full-body flight simulators, car racing simulators, and other VR games that were developed in-house. Additional attractions at Inspark include the “Ala Delta” (“Delta Wing”) hang gliding simulator, the “Cristales de Color” (“Color Crystals”) ball toss game, an “Infinity Room” by Telcel, and “Mixed Sports by Caliente.MX,” a mixed-reality game.
Inspark also hosts children’s birthday parties and functions as a special event venue for product launches, fashion shows, sports events, conferences, corporate celebrations, and festivals, offering catering and an adaptable infrastructure for up to 300 people.
“We decided to join IAAPA because we want to stay current in the entertainment industry and always be up to date with the global trends in this sector to continue bringing our developments to the entire population, with innovation being our main objective,” Ojeda says.
