Dubai’s Hub Zero opens three attractions from Simworx

Hub Zero in Dubai’s City Walk area, operated by Meeras Holdings, the region’s first immersive entertainment park and a gamer’s paradise, has three new Simworx attractions including a 50-seat, 4D cinema based on the Japanese video game Asura’s Wrath.

The cinema incorporates 1DOF seats and a range of effects such as leg ticklers, air blasts, water sprays and wind, along with special effects lighting. A large curved screen and Christie projectors provide the visual elements.

A 30-seat Immersive Tunnel from Simworx is also in operation, this being based on the Final Fantasy video game series by Square Enix. With a futuristic themed vehicle, the attraction features 3D projection on both sides and to the front of the vehicle, giving guests a truly immersive experience.

The third attraction provided to Hub Zero is a four-seat RoboCoaster based on Sony’s Dragon Age video game. Guests board the ride within a castle themed loading station before the experience begins and the passenger vehicle tilts over to hang riders in front of a quarter dome screen where all the action takes place.

And in addition to the Hub Zero projects, at the Mattel Play! Town entertainment centre also in City Walk, Simworx has installed a 4D cinema based around the hugely popular IP Thomas and Friends, with blue seats, Thomas badges on the seats and other related features.
