3D/4D Theatre: Suzhou Giant Wheel Theme Park to add Simworx Stargazer 4D motion theatre


UK based Simworx, a world leader in the design and supply of simulation attraction and effects theatres, has won an order to supply four of its Stargazer Motion Theatres to the new Giant Wheel Theme Park in China.

Situated in the city of Suzhou, about two hours from Shanghai, the park is one of a number of new theme parks opening this year in China and is due for completion later this year. The Simworx installation is scheduled to take place in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Incorporating a total of four Stargazer hydraulic motion base platforms, each seating up to seven riders in two rows of three and four seats, the project will include a variety of 4D effects to provide a fun, exciting and stimulating experience, and will be the third version of the Stargazer theatre to be installed in China, with many more worldwide. Having several other installations from its product range now evident in the Far East, and the benefit of local service offices in Malaysia and Singapore, also helped to ensure Simworx was shortlisted for the supply of a 4D effects theatre at the Suzhou park.

“Simworx continues to enjoy much success with its wide range of simulation and effects theatre attractions around the world, ” commented Managing Director Terry Monkton. “In this case, the client was looking for the ultimate 4D effects theatre experience. The Stargazer exceeded their expectations by combining the very latest in 3D and 4D technology with a highly dynamic, 6 DOF motion system.”

As well as the Stargazer motion systems, Simworx will also be supplying 4D effects including wind, aroma, snow, low smoke and leg ticklers, a selection of 3D ride films, 3D projection and special effects lighting within the Suzhou theatre.
