Simworx, a world leader in the supply of media based dynamic simulation attractions, has announced the opening of its first Immersive Tunnel at Movie Park Germany.
The Immersive Tunnel is a key component of Movie Park’s latest family attraction, The Lost Temple.
Situated in what was previously the Movie Magic Hall, The Lost Temple creates an unexplored world with prehistoric animals, dinosaurs and temples. Guests are immersed in an adventure story as they descend via on old lift into an underground excavation and then take part in a rescue mission as they move through the highly themed world, with the Immersive Tunnel as the exciting finish to their journey.
Movie Park General Manager Wouter Dekkers said, “We combine 4D effects and a 360 degree 3D screen for an amazing experience. In the Immersive Tunnel there seems to be a fine line between fact and fiction and the guest experiences the attraction with all his senses.”
Simworx Immersive Tunnel comprises two 30 seat “Jeep” styled simulator units each sitting on a highly dynamic, 3DOF motion base.
Moving from a themed loading bay, guests board the vehicles which then travel along a short track to the main show area which incorporates a 5m high, 46m long, 360 degree screen. The guests are then at the centre of the action in a temple with dinosaurs rampages around them.
The fully immersive 4D experience is achieved with 3D film projection to both sides and front of the tram, the movement of the vehicle, as well as 4D effects including wind and odours together with surround sound and dramatic lighting.
Simworx Managing Director Terry Monkton said, “The Immersive Tunnel is a dynamic, totally immersive attraction that takes sensory and physical simulation – and stimulation – to a new level. Combined with the superb theming that has been created in The Lost Temple, it provides visitors with an exciting adventure which is hugely entertaining. Seeing guests’ reactions when the vehicles are ‘attacked’ by the T-Rex dinosaurs is just brilliant! We have really enjoyed working with Movie Park on this project and I am sure it will be a big success for them”
