Leading creator of next-gen immersive experiences, Holovis Attractions, has won the contract to provide a complete turnkey solution for a new FEC in the iconic People’s Square Mall in Shanghai, China.
The project, in partnership with Liuyu Investment Company, encompasses all attractions, FEC systems, CGI and interactive gaming content within the 2000m² site.
One of the planned highlights is a first for China: a projection mapping show linked with real-time interactive augmented reality.
“This will be the most focused and integrated FEC experience ever delivered, with the attractions inspired by our much larger E-Ticket theme park division but presented using our scalable In-Mo™ platform, ensuring each ride is optimised for the best quality within the FEC parameters of limited space and value-driven budgets, ” says Stuart Hetherington, CEO of Holovis.
The 3D attractions include a Holovis Mini ImmersiveTunnel and an interactive Holovis ImmersiveTheatre featuring real-time interactive 3D gaming delivered on a curved display that wraps around the audience.
Four Holovis driving rigs combining motion bases with Oculus Rift headset devices will allow guests to enjoy a highly accurate motorsport alternative reality.
Games from the Holovis Dome Rider series will also feature, including The Lost Cove and Jungle Crisis, with more titles in the pipeline that will premiere at Mythos.
Hetherington says, “We will even bring to life the food court area of the facility with the world’s first projection mapped and AR feature wall, depicting a mythical and ever evolving real-time scene, which unveils hidden surprises and storytelling action when viewed through the accompanying augmented reality app.”
Mythos Adventurer Land is scheduled to open in early summer 2016.
