BEN 10 Experience

Date: October 2016

Client: Cartoon Network

Wenbar partnered with Apache to bring the power of the Omnitrix to Manchester, as the Ben 10 Hero AR Experience took place on the first weekend in October at Intu Trafford Centre. Wenbar had the task of designing and manufacturing the stage for the experience, incorporating all the technology provided by Apache.

Children were able to transform into one of four different aliens, watch the premiere episode of the brand new Ben 10 series, and get their photo taken with Heatblast – a favourite alien amongst the Ben 10 audience.

The initial run at Intu Trafford Centre proved so successful that the experience later toured at three additional locations: London, Copenhagen, and Tuscany.

In an innovative effort to take leisure in shopping centres to the next level, Wenbar installed a winter log cabin in the Intu Victoria shopping centre in Nottingham. Using technology provided by Apache, shoppers were able step into a virtual reality winter wonderland, decorate a Christmas tree and share their creations online.

‘This kind of social and interactive experience could become as commonplace for shoppers as stopping for a coffee with friends. It is providing a real moment of surprise and delight for customers in Nottingham which is likely to increase dwell time in the centre over Christmas and propensity to revisit to the benefit of our retailers.’

TMNT Tartaruga Run

Date: May 2016

Client: Paramount/AOL

A month prior to the release of the blockbuster Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Wenbar were given the task of designing and manufacturing the stage for a unique and interactive taste of the film, incorporating all the technology provided by Apache.

It gave players control over the Tartaruga, the Turtle’s trademark truck. Leaning left and right to steer, and with a swing of the arm to attack with the Tartaruga’s nunchucks, players took on hordes of AI-controlled Foot Clan enemies before a climactic boss battle with series antagonists Bebop & Rocksteady.
