Guests have been queuing up to see Curse of Skullrock at Drievliet in Holland. The film plays inside a 4D effects theatre from Simworx, housed inside an old Cine 180 dome rethemed by Jora Vision.
During the recent Euro Attractions Show in Amsterdam, Simworx managing director Terry Monkton took several customers to see the project first hand at the park near The Hague.
The theatre features 51 seats with 4D effects and multi-directional movement, making this a “5D” installation, if you’re fussy about your Ds. Access is also available for wheelchair users.
Effects include seat drop, water spray, leg ticklers, wind blowers, low smoke, bubbles and aroma. Special effects lighting further enhances the experience, which is provided by a Christie high definition 3D projection system, combined with surround sound.
“Our visitors like it very much,” notes Drievliet director Piet Faaij. “The film is very sharp and the movements are good too. From a quality point of view our new theatre is excellent. And it is a good family attraction so fits in very well with our target market.”
