Kung Fu Panda: Unstoppable Awesomeness

Simworx was recently involved in supplying attractions for a number of different venues in Dubai, including several within the eagerly anticipated theme parks which come under the Dubai Parks & Resorts banner.

Situated in Thea Awarded Dreamworks Animation Zone of Motiongate, the Cobra theatre experience is based on the DreamWorks Kung Fu Panda IP. It incorporates two rooms, each with two 25-seat, 3DoF, hydraulic motion platforms themed on a Hong Kong junk boat. The experience takes riders on a journey downriver with Po as they set out to save Kung Fu legend’s Furious Five as guests experience platform drops, dynamic movements and special effects.

Simworx carried out the design and manufacture, as well as supervising the installation.

Asked about what particularly excited Simworx about working on the project, a company spokesman said: “The various attractions that Dubai Parks and Resorts have developed are truly world class venues, with leading IPs. Because of this, it has been an absolute privilege to be able to supply rides to these venues.”
