The Lionsgate zone, one of the five zones at Motiongate Dubai at Dubai Parks and Resorts, is now fully open unveiling the world’s first ever rides and attractions inspired by the blockbuster movie franchise The Hunger Games.
This includes the Panem Aerial Tour, an exhilarating 3D hovercraft aerial tour over the districts on the way to the Capitol, presented through an immersive Tunnel solution. This features a new attraction design from experience designers Holovis to immerse guests and put them truly ‘inside’ the narrative.
Matt Dobbs, Middle East business development manager at Holovis explained: “Our new design takes the traditional immersive tunnel to a whole new level by enhancing multisensory experiences through unique and complex AV configuration. Guests will feel they are truly at the heart of the story as they fly over the different districts and try to escape the plot to capture them by the Capitol.”
The attraction features a dual set up with two 30-seat motion systems. Two 6.2 metre x 24 metre screens curve on both axis to envelope the ride vehicle and audience sightlines. Nine Digital Projection HighLite laser-based projectors were chosen to create stunning 3D images. These are mounted on a bespoke design Holovis OptiRig system with a mechanical lift, allowing simple installation and ongoing maintenance in a physically restricted space.
Holovis also developed PixControl, a proprietary auto alignment solution that automates alignment across the complex curved screen surface. This integrates into the show control system to ensure operators can confirm pixel perfect alignment every day without extensive software or hardware experience. This solution means every guest now gets the perfect experience with optimum sightlines, regardless of seat position or height.
