Thule

Since the 30th of June 2018, the Vikings live in Njordland. They are stationed in Zoo and adventurepark Thule. There, they encourage guests to move under the interactive dance arch, Yalp Sona. Creating new adventures together!


Mrs. Gasthaus states: “The guests react very positive to the Yalp Sona. In the beginning we were not sure about whether the interactive fits in our concept, but the product proved itself pretty quickly! Children are being enticed by the product and instantly feel engaged with the product. There is always movement under the arch! Music plays and kids are dancing. You can tell that the Yalp Sona attracts everyone: Kids who don’t know each other start to play together and this is just fabulous. For me it’s a great way to interact with my daughter as well.”

The park decided to diversify themselves by designing a unique custom Sona play arch, so it fits perfectly into Njordland. It’s not just the colors and figures that are unique, the voice is also customized. You hear a deep Viking’s voice that people bond to. Even though it’s a computer voice, it feels like a real Viking is living in the Yalp Sona and takes the kids with him on adventures.


Mrs. Grothaus is very satisfied: “The Sona Play Arch is well accepted. It requires no supervision or a big manual. The children love to listen to the Viking’s voice, because he explains which game they are going to play.” Let’s go!
