Simworx announces first Immersive Tunnel attraction for Malaysia

News

Simworx, the UK specialist supplier of media based dynamic simulation attractions, has announced that it is to supply an Immersive Tunnel attraction to a major tourist venue in Malaysia, the first in that country.

The new installation, due for completion in November 2015, will be carried out at Panorama Langkawi, a visitor attraction which currently offers a variety of different experiences to guests, including the SkyCab cable car ride to the top of the magnificent Machincang mountain, the SkyBridge, SkyTrail and SkyAdventure park, in addition to a range of other on-site attractions and facilities.

The Immersive Tunnel will be a ‘first’ for Malaysia and follows on from another contract secured in the Asia region by Simworx to install an Immersive Tunnel at an FEC venue in Wei Hai, China.

The attraction at Panorama Langkawi will feature a 30-seat, tracked tram and a brand new ride film, Dinosaur Island, produced exclusively for Simworx’s 30-seat version of the ride, which is also available with 60, 90 and 120 seats.

The Immersive Tunnel is a dynamic, totally immersive experience for all ages. Visitors enter the attraction building and take their seats on a jeep styled simulator, which after a short journey along a track into the main show area takes them on a fun-filled adventure which at Panorama Langkawi will be dinosaur-themed. The tram unit sits on a highly dynamic, 3DOF motion base and with physical platform drops, dynamic lighting, surround sound and 3D film projection to the front and both sides of the tram, a truly realistic experience is ensured.

“We are delighted to announce the contract with Panorama Langkawi which represents our first Immersive Tunnel attraction for Malaysia, ” said Simworx business development manager Edward Pawley. “The ride will feature a brand new film produced exclusively for the 30-seat version of the attraction which, along with all the accompanying effects, will create a fun, immersive experience that will appeal to a very wide age group, from youngsters to adults. We have enjoyed great success with the Immersive Tunnel since introducing it around 18 months ago and this latest example will be a superb addition to the attractions and facilities on offer at Panorama Langkawi.”
