4D Ride Simulator opens at the Big Banana Fun Park
Triotech, market leaders in design, development and manufacturing of multi-sensory interactive attractions have just completed the installation of a new XD Theatre at The Big Banana Fun Park. Featuring four ride simulator films - Moon Thunder, Dino Safari 2, Machinarum and Wild West Mine Ride, these films have been chosen by management at the Big Banana to cater for all of the different age groups that visit the park, from younger visitors through to the young at heart.
Big Banana General Manager, Michael Lockman explains “we have been working on a 4D Ride Simulator attraction for around five years now but we hadn’t been able to source the right product for our park.
“In late 2016, we visited IAAPA in Orlando, Florida ... where we met the team from Triotech and were able to experience the simulator first hand.
“We were very impressed with the product and their track-record in the industry (so) we are very excited to be able to bring this state-of-the-art experience to the Coffs Coast.”
Now open, the 4D Ride Simulator is the sixth new attraction added to the park in the last five years.
It follows the introduction of Laserforce Laser Tag in 2013, a 36-hole mini golf course in 2014, the biggest waterpark between Sydney and the Gold Coast in 2015, and the biggest giant slide in the country and Go Bananas Fun Zone in 2017 and now the 4D Ride Simulator in 2018.
