Simworx and Interlink in water ride partnership
New attraction with motion and immersive screens to open in Indonesia in 2019
Simworx has partnered with water ride specialist Interlink to create a new attraction concept which adds a motion base and immersive screens added to a flume ride.
Using 16-seater boats and a conveyor loading system on the attraction, riders leave the loading/unloading station and sail through a dinosaur themed area before entering an Immersive Tunnel section where their boat will stop and immersive screens on either side come to life to provide a dinosaur adventure element. The movement of the boats synchronises with the action on the film/visuals to add to the experience.
“The Immersive Superflume will take the ride to another level and will add an exciting and entertaining new element to this type of attraction.”
The ride will then continue through another dinosaur themed section before entering a 12m vertical lift featuring further theming and various special effects. On exiting from the top of the lift, riders will plunge into the final splash pool before heading back along another section of the ride to the station.
Large screens accommodating 3D, 4K projection will be used in combination with an audio system to place riders at the centre of the action.
“The Immersive Superflume is another exciting and highly entertaining addition to our continually growing product range and will bring a totally new dimension to the flume ride experience,” commented Simworx managing director Terry Monkton. “We are delighted to be working with Interlink on the project and to combine our expertise in immersive, media based attractions with their knowledge and experience in the creation of highly successful water rides.”
Interlink, commercial director John Davies, said: “The Immersive Superflume will take the ride to another level and will add an exciting and entertaining new element to this type of attraction. We are looking forward to working with Simworx on the project and to developing what I’m certain will be a very popular ride with guests to the park.”
The first example of the new attraction is due to open in December 2019 at a new shopping mall being developed by Trans Studio in Cibuber, outside Jakarta, Indonesia.
