Technology to really experience the high seas as if you were there
To recreate the atmosphere of the seas, the teams at Puy du Fou have created some one-of-a-kind effects thanks to cutting-edge technology. Huge machinery recreates the movements of the vessel and the most realistic of weather conditions. 3D video mapping and more than 170 audio recordings are added to the experience, to create a highly realistic environment, that will plunge visitors into a total immersion.
