In 2015, Toronto hosted the Pan Am Games. A $2.5 billion dollar multi-sport event, that brought together …
A highlight of the event was the Celebration Zone, a pavilion for popular family attractions and entertainment.
Lord Cultural Resources (LCR), a firm that works with cultural heritage organizations to help them drive social mobility, wanted to shine a spotlight cultural tourism. Their goal was to create an immersive, fun and, importantly, an accessible experience for visitors to the Celebration Zone; ultimately, to help increase Toronto's cultural capital both at home and abroad.
Embreate produced a Kinect-based all-ages themed attraction called Bravetail. Bravetail merged iconic Canadiana with popular culture and sport to create a compelling novelty experience inside the outdoor tent during the two week event. This family-friendly installation attracted participants from all over the world.
Bravetail the Beaver’s goal was to extinguish man-made forest fires before they got out of control. Players navigated the experience using motion sensor technology to shoot water arrows into the bush and put the fires out.
Bravetail immersed visitors in a fun, active, environment that reflected a distinctly Canadian voice. And ultimately helped the client achieve their goal of facilitating accessible cultural discovery through one location-based experience.
