Action made by the attraction manufactory for InQuest
InQuest is a unique and patented indoor play area where players move in an interactive environment, similar to that of a computer game. Not only should players possess knowledge and speed, they also have to master various sophisticated play stages, the last of which consists of a challenging high-speed slide the players have to use to reach the finish line as fast as possible. The concept of InQuest has proven to be that successful that the company is planning to set up play parks like that in all European metropolises. The first huge play park following the pilot project which was carried out in Lille, France, will be created in Paris in spring 2013. Our attraction manufactory is proud to be part of this great project and wishes the operators of InQuest the best of luck.
