“FANTASY LIGHTING IN THE NETHERLANDS
Efteling, a fantasy-themed park in the south of the Netherlands, has been entertaining its visitors since the opening of the “Fairytale Forest” in 1952, and continues to surprise them with new and exciting attractions based on elements from ancient myths and legends, fairy tales, fables and folklore.

ACTLD was commissioned by Puy du Fou International to collaborate on the renewing of Ravelin (or "Raveleijn" in Dutch). Based on a tale written by Paul van Loon, the show narrates the story of five children and their adventure in a fantastic forest. This show is produced in partnership with the theme park of the Puy du Fou, renowned for its large open-air epic medieval shows.
To immerse the visitors in a fairy tale world, we conceived a creative lighting concept, which underlines the set design elements and live performances by integrating the latest lighting technology as well as a made to measure show program.
ACTLD
The Ravelin project was an opportunity to develop a lighting design concept based on our know how of live spectacles and apply it in the context of a Theme Park show of more than a 1000 seats. The use of theatrical lighting methods, which enhance the scenography as well as live artistic and animal performances, allowed us to recreate an enchanting atmosphere of fantasy, leaving both children and adults with a memorable experience.

Thanks to our long term experience in theme parks, such as Futuroscope, Tivoli  and Parc Asterix, and other themed attractions, we were able to obtain the most spectacular effects and enrich the visual experience of the visitors.

ARCHITECTURAL LIGHTING DESIGN PROJECTS
ACTLD team is also currently working on the lighting design concept for “Columbus” shopping mall in Moscow, Russia.
LLC MIRS, Investor and Developer of Columbus shopping mall entrusted the architectural company C Concept Design with the design of this 277,000 m˛ area (including a Gross Leasing Area of 140,000 m˛), which aims at becoming one of the largest, most fashionable, and most entertaining center in Moscow. ACTLD joined C Concept Design to develop the creative architectural lighting concept for exterior & interior areas.
The Columbus concept is focuses on a unique entertainment experience, which consists of a multiplex IMAX cinema, an ice rink, a “kids zone”, a large food court and many restaurants with terraces. Victor Tsvetkov, CFO of LLC MIRS describes it as follow: “from concept to planning, Columbus focuses on consumers and their shopping experience. Due to the synergy of both (shopping and entertainment) functions, we will create one of the most attractive retail destinations in Moscow.”
The grand opening of Columbus shopping mall is planned for November 2014.
