Encompassing over 20,000 square meters, Wanda states the attraction is the first-of-its-kind in the world. An unprecedented marvel of engineering, the ride combines robotic arm movements with roller coaster track elements in a highly-themed cinematic environment. Called the “World’s Most Advanced Multi-Dimensional Cinema”, the dark ride roller coaster features technology from some of the most revered suppliers in the themed entertainment industry. Wanda Group has announced that the sophisticated, technically complex ride equipment is supplied by USA-based Premier Rides who has integrated the robotic technology. This equipment, combined with USA-based Tippett Studio’s full media production and the storyline of USA-based ITEC Entertainment, will achieve the most immersive experience ever built.
The Guangzhou Wanda Movie Park ride “The Ghouls” has recently completed installation, marking a new phase to the construction of the multi-dimensional cinema project.
The behind-the-scenes images of the factory testing reveal the state-of-the-art vehicle design: riders will be seated at the end of a large four-degree-of-freedom robotic arm attached to a roller coaster chassis. Wanda Group posted a picture of the successful prototype testing that occurred in the United States. They stated that the multi-dimensional cinema concept combines “dark ride equipment with the roller coaster experience” unlike any attraction in the world, putting to rest speculation by coaster enthusiasts and industry insiders about the details of the ground-breaking attraction. The project breaks through the traditional experience of dark rides and roller coasters, allowing visitors of Wanda Guangzhou City to feel the unlimited potential of movement and total immersion in the storyline.
When contacted, Jim Seay, president of Premier Rides, commented, “While we understandably cannot share any details on the project, Premier Rides is honored to be a part of this ground-breaking project that will raise the bar and expectations related to themed attractions in not just Asia, but around the world.
