Our Technology team recently hosted a ‘Fly Like Spyro’ indoor skydiving experience at Bottrop for press and creators across ten markets. They arrived to see our Spyro branded car outside, a BBQ and cocktail bar and playlist from Spyro’s birth year 1998. They then experienced the thrill of indoor skydiving in specially designed Spyro flight suits with Spyro vinyl branding on the wind tunnel and B Roll gameplay playing on screens around the venue. Our press and creators loved every minute too, “What an amazing and unexpected evening,” Sam Loveridge, Games Radar.
