Bringing MultiBall to Scotland | Vikingar! Leisure Centre and Visitor Attraction

KA Leisure was looking for a way to update a tired and uneconomical soft play area at their Vikingar! centre in Largs, Scotland. Find out how we used MultiBall to create a modern, fun, and interactive space that kids and adults alike can enjoy.

The brief

Vikingar! in Largs, Scotland had a well-loved soft play area that was reaching the end of its usable life. The team were keen to find a way to repurpose the space that would open it up to other age ranges while still catering for younger families.

The Solution

We introduced the team at Vikingar! to our MultiBall system; a solution to bridge the gap between the old soft-play space and modern interactive gaming systems. As this setup comes in different sizes and can be wall-mounted, it was the perfect solution to upgrade this space.

What is MultiBall?

MultiBall is the world’s first mixed reality sports and gaming platform. Combining gaming technology and physical activity, it turns any wall into a multisensory sporting arena designed to get kids and adults up on their feet.
 
Simply touch the wall to use the menu, pick your favourite game or training module and you’re off.

“We were looking for an accessible solution for the kids who used to use the soft play but make it an exciting space for older kids and adults too. MultiBall seemed like a great idea that would satisfy our requirements.”
Thomas Duff | Assistant Customer Service Manager, KA Leisure

MultiBall would let Vikingar! offer over 40 interactive games to their clients, catering for different ages and skill levels. With games categories varying from educational to sports training to just plain old fun, the screen would turn their underused space into a dynamic multi-use games and training area.

The System

Our team worked with Vikingar! to find the right model for their space. We decided together that the MultiBall Club would be the perfect fit. The Club model consists of a 4m x 2.8m sensor frame complete with a console. It offers a play area of 4.6m2, making the best use of the space.

To project the interactive program onto the screen, we opted for a high-brightness Sony VPL-PHZ50 Projector. This discreet 6000-lumen projector delivers vivid crisp images and is bright enough to work with the room lights on, which is ideal for catering for Vikingar!’s younger audiences.

The Project

Once the details had been nailed down, we sent our installation team to Largs to set up the MultiBall system.

To ensure a clear and even picture, we installed a large board on the wall which was painted white. The frame was then mounted onto this, and the projector was secured high on the ceiling to minimise screen shadow.

After installation, we spent a couple of hours with the Vikingar! team to show them how to operate the system so they could make the most of it.

The Impact

We helped KA Leisure transform their out-of-date soft play area into a modern and exciting interactive gaming system at their Vikingar! centre. As this is the first Scottish installation of the MultiBall system, they are leading the way in the gamification of physical activity in Scotland.

“MultiBall is still in its infancy, but everyone who uses it loves it. It’s now just a case of getting more people using it. We’ll be focussing on advertising the facility through word of mouth and social media.”
Thomas Duff | Assistant Customer Service Manager, KA Leisure
