Simworx Installs Ireland’s First 5D Special Effects Cinema


Leading supplier of media-based dynamic simulation attractions, Simworx, has installed the first 5D special effects cinema in Ireland.

Visitors to the new 48-seater attraction at Tayto Park in Co. Meath are promised a truly immersive experience as they watch comic dinosaur adventure Lost World or action-packed cowboy chase Wild West Mine Ride. The cinema features a 3 DOF (degrees of freedom) motion base providing left, right, forwards and backwards motion as well as special effects such as leg ticklers, air blasts and bubbles. Viewing is further enhanced by a Christie digital projection system.

“We chose to add a 5D cinema because we were looking for a ride that would be enjoyed by the whole family and could be refreshed year on year with a new movie, ” explains Tayto Park General Manager, Charles Coyle. “We chose Simworx as we felt they offered the best value for money and also had the best quality product. We also took advice from other people in the industry and Simworx was highly recommended. When we met with them we found they were a perfect fit for us. They have been efficient and professional throughout and have delivered a world class product.”

UK-based Simworx is known worldwide for its 4D effects cinemas and Immersive Tunnel and has just launched a 360° Rotating Flying Theatre. Managing Director, Terry Monkton, says the company is delighted to be working with Tayto Park. “The park is developing rapidly and has invested in many new attractions this year so I am very happy that Simworx has been able to contribute to this exciting growth. I’m sure the new cinema will be popular with visitors and that it will help contribute to the park’s continued success in the future.”
