The Compagnie des Alpes parks... Halloween alchemists
The recipe for fear by “Compagnie des Alpes” is a whole lot of creativity, a dose of know-how to script each park, and a host of good ideas and technologies exchanged between the different sites. Constantly enriched to offer unique experiences, the Halloween season has become a major event in the Group’s parks, regularly rewarded and recognised by professionals in the sector, not to mention the more than 800,000 visitors who have attended in recent years.
This year, early indicators (presales, bookings) once again point to our audiences’ strong appetite for this event, in an operational environment that nevertheless remains subject to constraints.
François Fassier, Director of the Leisure Parks Division, said: “In just a few years, Halloween has become an unmissable event in France and throughout Europe. The leisure parks sector has skilfully met visitors’ expectations. For Compagnie des Alpes, this has meant taking it to all of its sites, extending the number of opening days and opening hours, and increasing the number of night-time openings. Developing activities over this period has allowed us to make Halloween an essential period for our customers, our employees – whose usual commitment resonates even more strongly in the current situation – and all of our partners”.
