The Retro Squad Title Sequence

Journeying 20 light years across the galaxy, three transforming robotic fairground rides, Mixtape, Funk n Fly & Roller Disco, arrive on earth to bring retro thrills to UK theme park Alton Towers.

With a strong 1980s theme to the rides, Bottletop designed a short, punchy animation taking inspiration from the opening titles of Saturday morning cartoons such as Masters of the Universe and The Transformers. Hand drawn animation, painted backgrounds, glows, grain and a nostalgic synth rock soundtrack were all used to bring The Retro Squad to life.
