Media based simulation attractions specialist Simworx has installed over 200 4D seats in the Mar Rojo theatre at the Oceanogràfic Aquarium in Valencia, Spain.


202 seats in the main auditorium were replaced with Simworx' 4D seats to create a new, multi-purpose attraction combining 4D theatre with a main stage show.
The seats feature a number of built-in effects including leg ticklers, seat vibration, back prods, air blasts and water blasts.


Simworx also installed a variety of in-theatre effects including wind, smoke, bubbles, aroma, snow and special lighting effects.
The 4D cinema features a 10m x 5.62m state-of-the-art, retractable 3D Harkness screen and a full 7.1 surround sound digital setup.


Guests can choose from two films: Hurricane, a 20-minute film detailing the true story of the Atlantic Hurricane and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, an adventure under the sea aboard Captain Nemo’s famous submarine, The Nautilus.
The films utilise both the in-theatre effects and those provided by the seats. 20,0000 Leagues features water sprays, bubbles and wind blasts to mimic life on deck.


Terry Monkton, managing director at Simworx, says: “This has been an interesting project for Simworx and a good example of how we are able to provide an existing, operational attraction with a totally new dimension to enhance what it offers to guests. The seats we have installed provide an extended experience element to the theatre which helps to further entertain all ages and we are delighted with the end result.”
