MK Themed Attractions, the award-winning themed production company, has announced it is to showcase a selection of world-famous Intellectual Properties the company has created in recent months at IAAPA Expo in Orlando.

The display will include characters from Warner Bros. France, Ubisoft and Looney Tunes. Visitors heading to MK Themed Attractions’ stand will be able to feast their eyes on the blue Occamy from Warner Brothers’ Fantastic Beasts, a Rabbids character, Bugs Bunny from Looney Tunes and a Chewbecca figure.

The company’s stand in Orlando contrasts to its booth at IAAPA Expo Europe in September, which was jungle themed, with gorillas, lions, crocodiles, crashed airplanes and trees.

Lars Nielson, a Themed Attractions specialist, explained why they have opted to showcase IP characters at the forthcoming exhibition. “We believe the industry has become aware of our capabilities within comprehensive themed production, as we over the last couple of years, have grown our portfolio of large-scale themed projects with some of the most well-known amusement parks in Europe,” said Nielson.

“During IAAPA Expo Europe we won a European Star Award for helping the brand new theme of Colossos – Kampf der Giganten come to life, which contribute to this understanding, so now we want to show the attraction industry that we are also trusted by companies such as Warner Bros. France, Ubisoft and Looney Tunes, to produce their world famous IP characters,” Nielson added.

MK Themed Attractions will be exhibiting at booth #E7612 at IAAPA Expo in Orlando, which is taking place on November 19 to 22, 2019.



A new attraction has opened at Efteling theme park in the Netherlands. Known as the Six Swans, the attraction is the 30th fairy tale themed ride at the fantasy themed amusement park in Kaatsheuvel.

The Six Swans is located between the Cinderella and Snow White attractions in the park’s Fairytale Forest, the Sprookjesboom.

The new attraction is based on the German fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm about a princess rescuing her brothers who had been turned into six swans by their jealous stepmother.

Visitors to Efteling can experience the magical story either onboard a swan-themed boat or by foot. The boats travel along a circular on a two-minute journey.

Guests are greeted by the Princess Elisa. In order to break the swan spell, Elisa is forbidden to make a sound for six years and must knit six shirts out of aster flowers.

Inside the castle, 606 shimmering flowers surround Elisa, which light up when the swans pass her. The castle’s exterior is surrounded by thousands of aster flowers.

Fons Jurgens, Efteling’s CEO, commented: “Fairytales have been the origin of Efteling since 1952. That is why we continue to enrich the Fairytale Forest with new stories. This beautiful and interactive addition underlines our role as guardian of the fairytale.”
