5 Immersive Attractions Trends in AV for 2024

In the ever-evolving landscape of audiovisual (AV) experiences, technologies such as AI, AR, VR, holograms, LED screens, and projection mapping are reshaping the way we perceive and interact with the world. As we step into 2024, the demand for immersive attractions has surged, driven by the expectation of visitors not just wanting to be immersed in a space but expecting it.

Here are five top trends in immersive attractions that are set to define the AV landscape in 2024:

  1. Gamification Takes Center Stage: Universal Studios Japan and Universal Studios Hollywood have introduced a gamified land that brings Nintendo's video games to life. With interactive experiences facilitated by wearable wristbands connected to smartphones, visitors physically engage with the environment, hitting Question Blocks to collect coins in a real-life video game competition.

  2. Revolutionizing Venues with Cutting-Edge Technology: The recently opened Sphere venue in the US has redefined the concept of immersive entertainment. Boasting the world's largest and highest-resolution LED screen, along with the largest concert-grade audio system, Sphere is a marvel in design and technology. Visitors can enjoy immersive experiences, performances, and competitions within this colossal spherical structure. Initiatives by Meow Wolf, teamLab, and Culturespaces are transforming art exhibitions into artainment spaces. Through technology-driven artworks, immersive playgrounds, and secret passageways, these spaces seek to redefine the way art is displayed and experienced. 

  3. Immersive Dining Experiences: Creative studio SUPERBIEN, in collaboration with Ephemera Group, brings an immersive dining experience named Jungle Palace to Paris. Guests dining at this restaurant find themselves surrounded by a range of animals, immersed in a jungle experience from dawn to dusk, complete with a tropical storm.

  4. Immersive History Unveiled: The Curtain Theatre, an Elizabethan playhouse that operated from 1577 to 1624, is being revived as a new museum. Using AI, the museum aims to replicate the sights, smells, and sounds of Shakespeare's London in 1598. Visitors will have the unique opportunity to perform on the stage where iconic plays like Romeo and Juliet and Henry V were originally presented.
