and continuing the motion while moving into show position vastly expands the opportunities for creating new experiences.

Additionally, the seats can be tilted backwards while the system platform remains in the loading position. An extended screen in the ceiling area lets the guests look into the sky or other worlds. The possibilities are endless. Andreas explains: “The HEXaFLITE2.0 combines the best of a traditional open cabin simulator ride with our successful HEXaFLITE flying theatres. In general, all types of clients can benefit from the HEXaFLITE 2.0 system. A creative storyboard developer who includes the new features into his story can certainly benefit mostly from the new system.”

The simulators are themed and equipped as Super Wings aircrafts and are moved by powerful 6 DOF motion systems, so the guests will experience their very own Super Wings adventure together with their popular heroes. “We are very proud of the fact that we have been selected as a supplier by OCT Happy Valley, one of the most successful park operators in China, and that we were able to prevail against well-known competitors. This shows again that we have a big advantage with our expandable and adaptable concept concerning various designs and seat capacities within the FUNRIDE closed cabin and open cabin simulators”, says Andreas. ”It is a huge advantage for our customers that we can provide project management and customer service from our service base in Wuhan, China. This combined with a product “Made in Germany” is hard to beat!”, adds the company‘s sales manager for China, Sinan Shangguan. Construction is underway and the opening of the new Super Wings area is planned for 2021.

The FUNRIDE product can be designed as an open cabin simulator (FUNRIDE OCS) in front of a huge screen with multiple units or as a closed cabin simulator (FUNRIDE CCS) with on-board 2D or 3D projection systems. Alternatively, both systems can be mounted on a track for an immersive tunnel usage (FUNRIDE TR). A 360° turntable function can be integrated into the open cabin solution to direct the passengers to the media content in a dome projection attraction. Special effects, like wind scent or spray, can be added to the systems. Sizes of the various systems vary between 10 ad 100 passengers. Most are based on a 6 DOF hydraulic motion system which guarantees high performance, long life-time and minimal maintenance.
