PGAV Destinations Marks 2012 With Over $1 Billion in Projects

St. Louis, MO, USA -- PGAV Destinations, home-grown and based in St. Louis, is pleased to announce that another banner year has secured it as the world’s largest independent destination design firm in the world.

PGAV’s 2012 year-in-review report offers a glimpse of the work that talented architects, designers, and specialists have been developing around the world, leading to more than $1 billion in project openings, groundbreakings, and announcements this year alone. Many more projects are in development, but here is a sampling of the projects from PGAV Destinations’ year.


Turtle Trek opened at SeaWorld Orlando in April, with a reimagining of the existing manatee area with two new naturalistic saltwater and freshwater habitats for manatees and turtles, new retail space, interpretives, and interiors all leading guests through the lives of sea turtles and an important conservation message.

The new front gate entry experience opened this December at the Kennedy Space Center. Including brand new services, ticketing, retail, and a renovated restaurant, the front gate project brings color, excitement, and a new sense of anticipation to the entry experience and welcomes visitors to explore.

Aquatica, SeaWorld’s waterpark, opened in San Antonio this spring, the second of three SeaWorld Aquaticas (San Diego was announced this November). Inspired by the setting and atmosphere of the South Sea Islands, the 42,000 sq. ft. park offers a blend of up-close animal experiences, calm and exciting water attractions, and sandy beaches.

Sea Lion Sound opened this summer at the Saint Louis Zoo, featuring a 35-foot-long walk-through tunnel, the first of its kind in North America. The Pacific Northwest-inspired design by PGAV Destinations also incorporates grounds for an award-winning Sea Lion Show and plenty of habitats for California sea lions and harbor seals.

Verbolten opened at Busch Gardens Williamsburg in May, the most technologically advanced roller coaster ever built at Busch Gardens. With a storyline inspired by Grimm’s fairy tales, riders’ journey through the Black Forest includes an 88-foot drop and nearly 3,000 feet of track.

The Kennedy Space Center stores opened this year at the Orlando Airport, serving as ambassadors to NASA, inspiring customers to support the exploration of space and technology. The retail space provides a clean, modern and comfortable environment in which to promote the authenticity of Kennedy Space Center as a unique Orlando destination.

Also opening in May was Manta at Sea World San Diego. The multi-sensory attraction features a 270-degree projected media experience at launch, multiple coasters, and the Forbidden Reef exhibit, a one-of-a-kind home to hundreds of fish including bat rays, guitar fish, and more.


Construction began on two exciting PGAV Destinations projects in 2012. In January, ground was broken at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida as the new home for the space shuttle Atlantis began. The shuttle safely arrived at the site in late October, and the new attraction is slated to open to the public in summer 2013.

This fall, the Columbus Zoo broke ground on Safari Africa!, the new 43-acre African Savannah that will include a marketplace, restaurant, art-making hub, and a host of animals in close encounters and open grasslands, from monkeys to lions. Safari Africa! is slated to open in spring 2014.

Construction continues on the world-class Chimelong Hengqing Ocean Kingdom in Zhuhai, China. The 50 hectare marine theme park, full of rides, shows, and animal exhibits, is being developed by the Chimelong Group, owners of Chimelong Paradise and Chimelong Waterpark, the third-largest waterpark in the world.


Five attractions received top industry awards in 2012. The Louisville Zoo’s Glacier Run, an immersive exhibit which recreated a Churchill, Alaska-like outpost on the fringe of the arctic wilderness, won the AZA’s top honor in “Exhibit Design Excellence.”

This year’s Golden Ticket Awards, hosted by Amusement Today, granted its “Turnstile Award” to Manta at SeaWorld San Diego and its “Best New Amusement Park Ride of 2012” to Wild Eagle of Dollywood, just as both coasters obtained their one-millionth rider. Manta was recognized for its innovative incorporation of an action-packed roller coaster and a powerful marine education component, while Wild Eagle served as the world’s first “winged coaster.”

The Industrial Fabrics Association International this year recognized the Saint Louis Zoo Sea Lion Arena with an Outstanding Achievement Award, and the new Boeing Hall at the St. Louis Science Center an Award of Excellence. Boeing Hall was also recognized by Engineering News Record as the “Best Small Project” in the Midwest for 2012.


In 2012, PGAV Destinations published its latest research project, “The Art of the Family Vacation.” The study demystified recent family vacation trends, investigating the inner workings of the family mind-set as they plan, enjoy, and process their vacations and staycations around the country and world. The firm additionally shared its insights around the country by providing keynote speakers and panel facilitators at the Missouri Governors Conference, Illinois Association of Museums Annual Conference, the Association of Partners for Public Lands, and the national conferences of AZA, AZFA, SATE, and IAAPA.

2012 has been a record year of successes for PGAV Destinations, and 2013 will provide many new openings, project announcements, ground breakings, master plans, and research.

Moscow City Government Approves Construction of Universal Studios Moscow

by Joe Kleiman, InPark News Editor

Moscow, Russia (December 20, 2012) -- Various Russian news agencies are reporting that the Moscow city government has approved construction of a Universal Studios theme park and resort to be built in the southern part of the city.  In April, 2012,, a Russian online newspaper, reported that Russian real estate development company BIN Group had announced development of a themed resort called "Galaktika Park," which would include an indoor Universal Studios theme park.  The resort was projected to be 650-700,000 square meters, with 150,000 square meters being allocated to the park.  Estimated project cost was $2.8 billion, with $500 million going to the park.

The article stated that Universal would not have any financial investment in the park.  It quoted Michael Silver, Senior Vice President of Business and Legal Affairs at NBC Universal as saying, "Russia is a very significant and attractive market for us, we see big potential for amusement parks here."  InPark Magazine has confirmed that much like it did in 2010 with a potential Korean park operation, NBC Universal registered a foreign limited-liability company in Delaware on March 19, 2012 - Universal Studios Moscow Planning Services LLC.

Both Pravda, the paper of the country's Communist party, and Rossiyskaya Gazeta, the Russian government's official newspaper, are reporting that approval for construction was given on December 13, 2012 by the city’s commission for urban planning and land.  Vedomosti, a Russian business journal, reports that the resort will now encompass 1.2 million square meters (150,000 still be allocated to the Universal Studios theme park), and will will also entail "three-and four-star hotels (120,000 sq. m.), an office complex (160,000 sq. m.), as well as retail space, a winter garden, a water park, a conference center, a music theater, etc. In addition, the investor is obliged to organize parking for at least 10,000 cars." Vedomosti adds that Silver has "confirmed that [NBC Universal] has reached a preliminary agreement with [BIN Group]."

Hlas Ruska ("Voice of Russia"), the national radio broadcasting company, reports that the Moscow park will have the lowest ticket price of any Universal theme park - at US$30.  Universal Studios Moscow is projected to open in 2018.

Utopia Entertainment Helps Turn 20th Anniversary of House of Blues' Sunset Strip Location into a Blast

Studio City, CA, USA -- Utopia Entertainment created a spectacle on Tuesday December 4, 2012 at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip for their 20th Anniversary Celebration. Utopia produced a pre-show for the event that included a grand entrance for the Blues Brothers, Elwood and Zeke Blues, played in character by Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi. The event was to commemorate 20 years of being an iconic live music venue and included performances by the Blues Brothers, Deer Tick, Flogging Molly, and Rock and Roll hall of famers and legendary rock band ZZ Top.

Utopia Entertainment sent Elwood and Zeke Blues in their classic “Blues Mobile” down Sunset Boulevard with a full police motorcade and news helicopter to help guide them. The Brothers were on a “mission from God” to flip the switch that would kick off the evening’s festivities. Once they arrived at the venue, the duo took the stage and after Aykroyd spoke a few words, Belushi pulled the switch and a pyrotechnic
spectacular began including a ten-foot-tall “20” that was set ablaze raised 40 feet above street level and 20 comets that exploded off of the iconic water tower, one for each year the venue has been in business. This was the largest 90-second fireworks display ever seen on the Sunset Strip. As the pyrotechnics ended, a huge boom sounded and streamers filled the front of the venue. This prompted the beginning of a night of music,  food, and celebration.

“We were thrilled to be invited back to the House of Blues to continue to create spectacular elements for them. Having been a Blues Brothers fan since their first appearance back in the ‘70s, this was truly an honor and a great deal of fun,” said Norm Kahn, Utopia Entertainment CEO.

Maplewood, NJ, USA -- In October, ALCHEMY studio added another museum in Australia to its portfolio: The Australian Museum. The Australian Museum is the oldest museum in Australia and focuses on subjects in natural history and anthropology.

ALCHEMY studio is currently working with the exhibition team at the museum to plan, think through and develop material to describe new exhibition projects that will then be part of their traveling exhibition program. This work is designed to help jump start exhibition development at a very early stage, thus allowing museum staff to concentrate on near-term deadlines.

Electrosonic Delivers New Video Wall to The Weather Channel

Los Angeles, CA, USA (December 18, 2012) -- When The Weather Channel wanted to upgrade the primary studio set at its Atlanta headquarters, it turned to Electrosonic to install a new video wall to replace the previous display the company had provided. The new system, comprised of 12 Christie® Entero™ LED-illuminated rear-projection display cubes, is now seen as a backdrop for on-air talent and is a vehicle for live video and map presentations.

“In 2008, we supplied a rear-screen projection edge-blended system with Christie projectors,” explains Electrosonic Systems Consultant Pete Rajcula. “We have an ongoing relationship with The Weather Channel, and when they were looking for a new alternative to the blended system, we suggested Christie’s LED-illuminated DLP cubes, which offer extremely long lamp life, rich color and easy maintenance.”

Rajcula notes that while the former system was state-of-the-art at the time, LED-illuminated cubes have now reached maturity in the market, allowing the Weather Channel to reap the benefits of the technology.

The Christie® Entero™ LED was the first high resolution LED-based display cube introduced for the control room market. Using solid state illumination, the Entero™ LED display cubes feature vivid, wide color gamut performance – with no lamps to replace, no moving parts, and no consumables.

The installation was challenged by the need to do the work on a fully functioning set. Electrosonic installed the wall’s pedestal and cubes, adjusted the geometry and color balanced the screens to match the studio lighting.

“We’re extremely happy with the video wall,” reports The Weather Channel’s broadcast engineer Travis Warner.

The video wall is designed in a 2x6 configuration with dimensions measuring 26.9 feet wide by 6.8 feet high. A three-output Vista Spyder image processor drives a trio of 1-in/4-out distribution amps. Each of the DAs, in turn, drives one of three 2x2 sections of the wall. The video wall does its own processing of each 2x2 section, creating one large dynamic image across the display.

Andy Borum was Electrosonic’s project manager for the installation. “Everything went smoothly even though the studio was in use,” he reports. “The Weather Channel was prepared for our arrival, so we were able to build the wall and make the initial tweaks without disrupting on-air production.”
