Bringing Characters To Life

Imagine watching The Smurfs rehearsing a new show until Brainy stops to ask you what your favorite song is...

Imagine riding a submarine to Bikini Bottom to meet SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends, and Patrick suddenly asks you what kind of strange fish you are…

Imagine traveling to the Kingdom of Far, Far Away to catch Donkey’s show at Hook’s Knight Club and Donkey asks you what kingdom you came from...

With Super 78’s proprietary Geppetto technology, animated characters become a part of our world, and we become of part of theirs. Guests get to have real, unscripted, one-on-one conversations with these fanciful creations. They can even take control of the story; in the SpongeBob SubPants Adventure guests tell Patrick where to navigate the sub next.

Geppetto-powered experiences are entertaining for all ages; for youngest guests, they are simply miraculous.

What was once the product of countless hours of work and hundreds of drawings is now available with a few clicks of a controller. Using custom software, the only of its kind, Geppetto allows a puppeteer to instantly bring a character to life, in real-time, in front of a live audience. Programmed with a system designed for ease of use, Geppetto's animated characters are designed with a variety of prerecorded movements that form the foundation for a living, breathing, fully believable animated character.

VILLAGE PLAYHOUSE

Motiongate Theme Park, Dubai

Super 78 developed this interactive Smurfs attraction for the new Motiongate Theme Park in Dubai. In this anchor experience for the park’s Smurfs Village section, guests get to speak live and one-on-one with Brainy Smurf, and meet dozens of the famous blue characters.

The show features all the family-friendly humor and personality that have made The Smurfs beloved worldwide. Using sophisticated digital animation techniques, the Smurf characters are rendered as fully dimensional “performers” that remain true to the original drawings by creator Peyo.

Super 78 used Geppetto ACS, our proprietary digital puppetry system, to develop the world’s most advanced stereo interactive character experience. The Spongebob SubPants Adventure takes guests on a fun-filled journey to Bikini Bottom where they meet and speak live with Patrick Star. Using branching storytelling, the 4D immersive attraction also allows guests to help “navigate” the voyage, making each adventure completely unique.
