We’re thrilled to be able to unveil our latest commercial product, ‘A Giant Adventure’ at The Alnwick Garden, opening to the public on 20 July.

This ground breaking digitally interactive trail encourages younger visitors to discover virtual as well as physical artefacts- belonging to a giant and his friends- on a magical mystery tour of the iconic, award winning gardens. ‘A Giant Adventure’ is the second augmented reality installation designed by Peel Interactive for The Alnwick Garden.
This product showcases perfectly our pioneering work in mixing the digital and physical worlds to create a truly memorable family day out. Parents and children simply download the app- available on the app stores when they arrive- to their phones, before embarking on the trails.

The app uses augmented reality technology to trigger points around the gardens which are activated once a visitor’s smartphone is targeted on them, ‘unlocking’ fun and engaging content which in this case is our loveable ‘giant’ 3D animations.

There are several virtual and physical installations which children (and big kids) can hunt down, including a giant squirrel in the iconic treehouse, a giant mouse scurrying out of a huge boot, a talking skull at Alnwick’s famous Poison Garden and even the giant himself.

All of our digital experiences are designed to meet our clients’ objectives. We have embedded specified educational content and brought history to life with our interactive cooking experience at York Mansion House and highlighted important issues via interactive media with our climate change game and 3D landscape model for the RSPB. The objective may just be to create fun exploratory experiences, as in the case of our products for Marella Cruises and The Alnwick Garden.

Our apps also incorporate lots of fun photo opportunities for visitors to capture and share their virtual adventures. You can even dance with the giant!
