Anothert trand is reconception when familiar and traditional leasure attractions of physical experience domain gain new creative cover to strenghten the interest towards them. But most important is that the most sought after niche is intergrated amusment solutions which unites best features of virtual and real world in one product. The type of product tp fullfill a long demanded possibility to unite both kids and grown ups in one joint leisure time.
Most of the entertainment that are offered the residents of the metropolis today have little difference from those that existed 10 or 20 years ago. But we live in the XXI century - in the age of augmented reality and digital technology. So why fill your leisure time familiar and commonplace, when there are great ways to "break pattern" and give new impressions?

The logo symbolizes unity, friendship and opennes and is thought to be an interactive puzzle multipling computer game excitement with physcial experience of offline attractions.
