NEXT-GEN OUTDOOR
PLAYGROUND FOR YOUR KIDS

UGO MEANS MOVING

UGO is a life-size interactive experience that’ll get your kids running, playing and jumping the way they are meant to: outside. At the playground. Exactly like their Mom and Dad did when they were young.

UGO also means having your kids give a good workout to their muscles, brains and, most importantly, their imagination. All they need to do is launch a new game from the UGO terminal. And slide, get dirty, laugh and watch the points roll in by interacting with the several sensors set up in the playground structure.

UGO is a Go-Élan innovation, an outdoor playground equipment manufacturer based in Quebec (Canada) with a 30-year plus track record of excellence.

The avowed goal of the UGO line is to bring back kids to what playing outside is all about—health, stimulation, sociability—all these while updating it for a generation that has grown up in a connected world.

That is why each UGO game component combines technology with manufacturing know-how. UGO play modules are designed to be both immersive and fun.

Inspired by the compelling design of video games, UGO turns sitting and staring at a screen into full-body activity outside.

Finally, and even more importantly, UGO creates and strengthens friendships by bringing players together in fun, interactive activities that get them moving.

THE UGO
GAME CONCEPT

THE UGO
GAME CONCEPT

ENGAGEMENT AND IMAGINATION IN MOVEMENT.

UGO is a line of outdoor playground games that brings kids together and gets them moving through immersion.

UGO talks, cheers and sparks the imagination of young ones while rewarding their accomplishments. Exactly like a video game. UGO’s original music and unique soundtrack promote healthy competition and collaboration. Everything is set for maximum fun!

PLAYING IS REALITY THAT MOVES AND LAUGHS!

The UGO philosophy is pretty straightforward: let’s change outdoor playgrounds into a huge video game.

Kids make the game progresses as they run, jump and climb and generally interact with UGO sensors.

UGO’s unique sounds, sights, original music and instructions takes players on a completely immersive journey that they’ll want to experience and share over and over again.

UGO—A CONSUMMATE STORYTELLER

UGO— Much More than Immersion: It Talks!

UGO is a great storyteller. Like the best of day camp counsellors.

UGO also responds to the children with answers pre-recorded by professional actors, creating an atmosphere that you’ve never seen in a playground before.

UGO sets the scene, introduces the characters, and explains the rules. Above all, the children are challenged to go all out. UGO even laughs out loud with them from time to time.

UGO’S SENSORS

Each play session is unique, thanks to UGO’s various game modes and the many sensors strategically placed all around the playground. Sensor use enables the various types of interactions and game modes.

UGO playgrounds are based on two types of sensors: buttons and rotation.

BUTTON

The button sensor allows children to play interactive games and more in everywhere in the playground.

Each button sensor consists of:

  • An electronic processor;
  • An independent speaker;
  • A LED light component.
  • A button

ROTATION

Rotation sensors accurately calculate the speed at which rotating parts are turning. They challenge children to try to keep up or go faster.

Each rotation sensor includes:

  • An electronic processor;
  • An independent speaker;
  • Several LED light components.
  • A rotation detection device
