Simworx and JoraVision Create Next Generation Immersive Tunnel Dark Ride: The Curse of Blackstorm Bay

Simworx, a world leader in the supply of media based dynamic simulation attractions, and design and theming specialist Jora Vision have created the next generation immersive tunnel dark ride: The Curse of Blackstorm Bay.

The Curse of Blackstorm Bay

Based on Simworx’ popular Immersive Tunnel attractions, The Curse of Blackstorm Bay is a fully immersive pirate-themed experience. Guests are taken on a swashbuckling adventure filled with humour, action and suspense right from the pre-show and queue line, all the way through to the final fight with the sea-witch-turned-Kraken where the ship breaks in two.

Commenting on the announcement, Simworx sales director Edward Pawley said, “The Curse of Blackstorm Bay is a stunning new concept for our Immersive Tunnel and takes the attraction and experience provided to a whole new level. The ride immerses guests as soon as they enter the pre-show area and continues to do so all the way through the queue line areas and into the main show element. It’s a fun, exciting and highly entertaining experience for most ages and a great addition to what Simworx has to offer.”
