February 22, 2024

Several Looping Group attractions will be using the Konnect integrated management platform this Spring. 

February 27, 2024 – Connect&GOthe leader in integrated attractions technology, continues its upward trajectory in France with three new Looping Group deployments underway. Grand Aquarium de Touraine, Mini Chateaux and Planète Sauvage are slated to go live with the Konnect attractions management platform in February, with La Mer de Sable and Parc Bagatelle to follow in Mid-April. This strategic expansion solidifies Connect&GO’s commitment to transforming the leisure and attractions landscape in France and further cements its position as a trusted technology partner for the region. 

From the torrents of the French mountains to the distant seas, the Grand Aquarium de Touraine is the largest freshwater aquarium in Europe and the only aquarium that allows visitors to discover three aquatic domains in one place. Right next door, Mini-Chateaux features over 40 miniature castles reproduced by model artists at a scale of 1:25 with a scented garden for an olfactory adventure through history.  

Planète Sauvage is a safari animal park that offers a unique opportunity to discover more than 1000 wild animals from 150 different species in natural areas.  

La Mer de Sable and Parc Bagatelle are two of the largest theme parks in France and are both situated in Northern France. La Mer de Sable takes guests from the desert to jungle and the Far West with over 30 attractions, shows and equestrian performances just on the outskirts of Paris. Parc Bagatelle is packed with thrilling rides and performances that are fun for the whole family. 

All of these Looping Group attractions will use the Konnect integrated management platform to simplify operations and drive revenue through a centralized system. Compared to legacy platforms that are disconnected and incomplete, Konnect is a true revolution in the field of attractions management technology, seamlessly integrating eCommerce, point-of-sale, access control, BI reporting, cashless payments and more with optional RFID technology. Using proprietary Virtual Wallet technology and real-time data, Konnect not only enhances operational efficiency but also ensures a seamless experience for guests.  

In addition to these features, Grand Aquarium de Touraine and Planète Sauvage will leverage Konnect’s capabilities for B2C and B2B sales and reservation, Corporate eCommerce, external ticketing and Chorus Pro integration. This comprehensive suite of functionalities underscores Konnect's position as a transformative force in the field of attractions management technology, propelling Grand Aquarium de Touraine and Planète Sauvage into a new era of operational excellence and guest satisfaction. 

These latest deployments build on the successful partnership between Connect&GO and Looping Group, joining Grand Aquarium St-Malo and Cobac Parc who implemented the Konnect platform in 2022 and 2023.  

“We’re excited for the next phase in our partnership with Connect&GO,” commented Charles Bennet, COO of Looping Group, “They have been amazing in meeting our needs, delivering on custom development and providing hands-on support from the start of our relationship.” 

In the previous year, Connect&GO has made significant strides toward becoming France’s leading choice for next-generation attractions management technology—a natural progression for the bilingual company headquartered in Quebec. Integrations with Ticketmaster France and France Billet and with Chorus Pro help create a complete solution for the French market and the company has hired new team members in Europe to help meet the growing demand for their solution.  

“As Connect&GO surges ahead, we are thrilled to reinforce our presence in France with the deployment in these new Looping Group attractions,” said Dominic Gagnon, CEO of Connect&GO. “This expansion is a testament to the success of our partnership and our ongoing commitment to delivering unparalleled technology that enhances operational efficiency and drives revenue for our clients.”  

Connect&GO continues to support its clients around the world in switching to modern and completely integrated technology that empowers them to simplify their operations, increase their revenue and focus on their guests. The company recently announced new partnerships with Wicked Waves Waterpark and Cape Cod Inflatables park, ARENA23, and Splash Kingdom in the United States after unveiling their integrated BI reporting tool (Konnect BI reporting) at IAAPA Expo 2023.
