We’ve scooped the prestigious award for Outstanding 3D Theatre and Dark Ride at the inaugural Asia Attraction Awards, which took place on 19th October in Shanghai.
Haoqin GU and Dongtao Xue from our Shanghai office were there to collect the trophy, which was awarded for the 4D Cinerama immersive theatre in Hotgo, Fushun, China. This is the first purely media based attraction at the park and is still one of the largest immersive setups in China.
We were entrusted to design and deliver the 195-seat experience as a complete turnkey attraction for the park earlier this year. The audience are wrapped in the media by giant twenty metres wide by five metres high 180° curved 3D screens for complete immersion, complemented by surround audio, perfectly synched motion and SFX to significantly intensify the experience.
Haoqin Gu explains:
“This award means a lot to us because the result has been wholly decided by the readers of Asia Attraction Magazine and the guests visiting the theme parks. Once the initial shortlist was released, the voting took place using the poll system on WeChat and we are told that we had a significant lead throughout the voting process over the competition. This endorsement from our peers and the people we design these experiences for is fantastic.”
