Media-based attractions specialist, CAVU Designwerks Inc. (CAVU), has been commissioned by Macrolink Group to provide a turnkey flying theatre attraction for Beautiful Hunan – a new resort in Changsha, China.
Entitled Beautiful Hunan, it will be one of the landmark rides at Tongguan Kiln International Cultural and Tourism Center which is slated to open in June 2018. Historically, Tongguan Kiln was one of China’s most important centres for porcelain production.
Beautiful Hunan – an attraction and a cultural showcase
As the number of international visitors to China continues to snowball, the country is keen to display and celebrate its cultural heritage. Beautiful Hunan is an example if this, acting as both an attraction and a showcase for the region past and present.
The flying theatre ride will give guests a birds-eye view of the most important historical sites in Hunan province. The thrilling adventure will encompass the ancient kilns of Tongguan, the Wulingyuan (Avatar) mountains, Mt Heng, historic Yueyang Tower, Mao Zedong’s house, modern Changsha City, and the new development at Macrolink’s Modern Tongguan Center.
Macrolink selected CAVU for its proven track record of delivering exceptional guests experiences on time and on budget. As turnkey provider, the company assembled experts for all aspects of the project, including media, AV equipment, programming and attraction design.
