It’s the very first launch from the company behind the project, Moment Factory, in a European resort and the experience is designed to attract all ages throughout the summer and winter evenings.
What is the Lumina night walk experience?
“Lumina enchanted night walks are immersive experiences that plunge visitors into an imaginative world and use the magic of multimedia to awaken their inner child”. Already present in a dozen destinations around the world, Moment Factory is expanding its concept to Europe.
The Lumina night walk project is part of the resort’s strategy to diversify its activities. As the first Lumina night walk in Europe designed to be open all year round, the concept works towards the aim of creating a ‘four-season destination’, which is expected to have a positive impact on the local and regional economy. The activity’s year-round operation will lead to the creation of 10 jobs and an estimated 120,000 visitor nights.
Henri Anthonioz, Mayor of Les Gets, said: “We are proud to be the first European tourist resort to present this exclusive, unique and innovative concept, beginning this summer. This will be a first in the Alps. We have been looking for a family activity suitable for all, something connected to nature and accessible all year round, in line with our strategy of four-season diversification, which we began a few years ago”.
