Animax Designs is a high energy, industry-leading, established puppet-turned-animatronics company. Our story began three decades ago when we took the puppetry world by storm with puppets whose attention to detail was bar none. Fast forward to today and with that same mindset of bar none attention to detail, we now lead the themed entertainment industry with the most highly sophisticated animatronics that park guests and audiences have ever seen.

Whether that be a theme park, live show, or touring attraction, Themed Entertainment is about the overall guest experience, the attention-to-detail, and the ability for guests to feel truly immersed in the world designed for them. It is our role to help the dreams of our clients become a reality through the characters we create and with our expertise, our clients can create experiences for their guests around the world that they never thought possible.
