Tropical Island
Orientation System

“Hol­i­day in the trop­ics” promises the theme park Trop­i­cal Is­lands, ap­prox­i­mately 60 kilo­me­tres south of Berlin – in the midst of an in­door rain­for­est, Trop­i­cal Is­lands of­fers wa­ter­scapes, saunas and spas with restau­rants, shops, shows and other en­ter­tain­ment. For the open­ing in 2004, Moni­teurs de­signed a suit­ably the­matic and play­fully colour­ful ori­en­ta­tion sys­tem, in­cor­po­rat­ing ex­otic ma­te­ri­als and shapes. The in­for­ma­tion is dig­i­tally printed onto fab­ric and stretched with ropes be­tween bam­boo poles. A colour sys­tem dis­tin­guishes be­tween the dif­fer­ent ar­eas of the 66,000 square me­tre theme park. Suit­able graphic el­e­ments and a spe­cially de­vel­oped pic­togram fam­ily re­in­force the trop­i­cal im­pres­sion even fur­ther.

In the car park, flags show the visitors which section they have parked in.
