UK-based dynamic media attractions specialist Simworx is to supply an example of its Immersive Adventurer ride to Future Kid’s Cartoon Network World in Kuwait.
The attraction is a highly dynamic, 3DOF motion simulator, themed internally as a 16-seat vehicle which uses 13 video screens to project media on all sides of the vehicle including the roof. The on-board AV technology is designed to immerse riders into the world of Ben 10.
The ride will be a key attraction at Cartoon Network World, Kuwait, which is to be completely redeveloped in 2019, with all the current rides replaced. The announcement was made at IAAPA 2018. UK outfit, Katapult, is providing the design for the new facility.
Simworx CEO Terry Monkton commented: “We’re absolutely delighted to be working with Future Kid on this amazing project in Kuwait, bringing the first Immersive Adventurer to the Middle East region. We’re also delighted to be working with Cartoon Network in bringing the Ben 10 brand to life – it will be an amazing ride.”
