News
Simworx Mini Flying Theatre

Simworx is enjoying a healthier and more diverse order book than at any time in the dynamic media-based attractions specialist‘s history.

In the past year, the British company has signed orders worth €30 million ($40m/€33.5m). It also has a €46m strategic co-operation with a theme park developer in China. This will see Simworx supplying a total of 12 attractions to four new parks (three per park) between 2018 and 2021.

What managing director Terry Monkton describes as “an amazing ride” will open the following March in Mexico. Pirates of Baccalar will form part of the offering at the new Amikoo park on the Mayan Rivera. The custom-themed Immersive Tunnel installation will include 4k quality projection on specially extended screens. Water will form a barrier between the ride vehicle and screen, and an extra layer of immersion. As part of an extensive pre-show, the attraction will feature a walk-through labyrinth and cinema, extending the total experience time to around 40 minutes.
