Geekopolis, the new Geek cultural place

Start
With innovation and technology as its DNA, a new place dedicated to Geek culture opens at the gates of Paris. A new living space dedicated to the imagination, digital entertainment and fun activities, Geekopolis explores different worlds, from fantasy to horror and science fiction. Discovery.
 
Geekopolis enters the era of 3.0 entertainment by offering new and original experiences: Immersive Xperience, Escape Games, Virtual Reality, Arena VR or Flash Game. More than 2000m2 of games space will be offered in this unique place. 
Located on the outskirts of Paris, Geekopolis has taken its headquarters in the heart of Goldsmithing the site of the former Christofle factories, in the heart of Saint-Denis. This place, very popular for film shoots with its 19th century industrial architecture is perfect to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the place.
 

A concept at the service of new uses

At a time when 55% of the French are playing video games, gamers want to go further and discover original content, developed by innovative technologies. The objective? To experience new sensations! Through acting games, puzzle solving and virtual reality, the site offers collective experiences that change the very notion of entertainment by highlighting the involvement and immersion of players, as well as new technologies.
 
In order to make these new experiences come alive, Geekopolis has surrounded itself with an ecosystem of partner companies in advanced technologies. Indeed, all virtual reality game concepts are developed by the companies Iconik and Virtual Makers, and installed on HTC Vive VR helmets, which offer the best experience currently available on the market.
 
Geekopolis goes even further with the Emotion Capture bracelet. Specially created by Iconik for one of the experiments, it measures changes in heart rate, temperature and electrical conductance of the skin. Thanks to all this information transmitted in real time, the performance of the actors and teams on the site is adjusted according to the emotional charge of the players.
Many elements are also taken into account in the interactions with the players, giving a whole new meaning to the sensory experience: shelves, projections, animated set elements, rotating seats or contactless technology.
 
 

MUTATIONS, the Great Xperience

The flagship experience of Geekopolis, MUTATIONS is an immersive adventure, new and unique, mixing virtual reality, escape game and immersive theatre. In teams of eight, players will have to survive the contaminated guinea pigs that have infested a secret laboratory, before thwarting the security systems by walking through the 1200 m² of cinema sets that make up the experience.
Already offered in the form of events in Paris in 2017 and in Nantes in 2018, MUTATIONS is now durably installed and enriched by several improvements.
 
Geekopolis also offers many other experiences: Sky Racer and Galactik Services (new RV arcades involving mobile platforms and original rotating seats), Lupin, a sensory and RV high-flying adventure, or Spy Ball, a fun, original and sporting experience with interactive video-projection around a ball pool.
