Lost Lake Festival, a new three-day, multi-format music festival in Phoenix, reveals details of The Lost Playground, a unique gaming and entertainment experience unparalleled by any event. Festival-goers will enjoy a magical experience with larger-than-life games in The Lost Playground gaming area and throughout the festival grounds.
A first for any major festival of its kind, Lost Lake offers a unique twist on games and sports to entertain festival-goers throughout the event weekend, Oct. 20-22, 2017. In partnership with longtime Bonnaroo collaborator and Phoenix based Walter Productions, Lost Lake has reimagined everyone’s favorite backyard and billiard games in unexpected ways. From a Giant Pool Table played with bowling balls to Colossal Croquet so large a player can follow their ball through the hoop, these games are the ultimate adult playground. When the sun goes down, more than ten custom designed games light up with colorful LED and glow-in-the-dark features.
“Lost Lake is one of the largest and most unique festival experiences in the state, and we wanted all aspects of the event, including the games, to reflect this. The festival is going to have a real sense of fun and spectacle to it, something that people will have truly never experienced,” says Rick Farman, Co-founder, Superfly. “From big sporting events to hanging out with friends, Phoenix is a city that likes to have fun and The Lost Playground takes the fun and games to another level that only Walter Productions could create.”
Walter Productions is well-known for their large scale and unique activations at events including Burning Man and Life is Beautiful, and art car projects such as Walter the Bus, Kalliope and Big Red. Inspired by the elements of play and scale, and wanting to reconnect people with their inner child by reimagining nostalgic games in a surreal way, Walter Productions developed The Lost Playground concept. Each creation has surprise and delight elements participants must personally explore in order to discover. The supersized interactive games will create a magical experience as people enter The Lost Playground and reconnect with their sense of wonder.
“We’re excited to once again work with the creators of Lost Lake to bring our expertise of developing immersive entertainment experiences to the inaugural festival here in our own backyard,” said Jeremy Watson, VP, Creative Development at Walter Productions. “Lost Lake is a first-of-its-kind event in Phoenix, and The Lost Playground, complete with oversized and reimagined versions of nostalgic games, was created to take fans on an adventure of a lifetime.”
The full lineup of experiences in The Lost Playground will include:
- Giant Pool Table: Taking billiards to another level, the giant, 56-foot long pool table is played by rolling bowling balls into the pockets.
- LED Table Tennis: The electric table has built in responsive LED lights that respond to the touch of the ball.
- Mega Twister: A twist on Twister with lights, sound and a giant spinner, with plenty of room for friends.
- Colossal Croquet: Making this classic lawn game so large a player can chase their ball through the hoop as they make their way through the course.
- Plus oversized and colorful LED illuminated versions of games including, Life-size Connect 4, Humongous Cornhole, Jumbo Jenga, Gigantic Ladder Golf, Giant Foosball, Extra-Large Bocce Ball and more.
