New Bali indoor theme park set to open before year end
A new indoor theme park, Trans Studio Bali, is set to open on the Indonesian holiday island before the end of the year.
Developed by CT Corp, Indonesia’s leading theme park operator, the family entertainment centre will offer a rooftop Boomerang rollercoaster from Vekoma and a new ‘stunt show dark ride’, to be known as Road Rage, among its signature attractions.
To design and produce the ambitious Road Rage, Trans Studio has enlisted top talent from Hollywood-based Legacy Entertainment who are combining a dynamic ride system from Oceaneering paired with a pounding musical score by Benoit Jutras - famed composer with Cirque du Soleil and Dragone.
Lee Roe, Legacy’s creative director for the project, recently explained “for the first time ever, visitors to an Indonesian theme park will experience a dark ride that exceeds those in many of the world’s top international theme parks.
“We love working with Trans Studio because they’re pioneers. They have no interest in rehashing what’s been done elsewhere.”
Legacy Entertainment are also designing attractions for CT Corp’s Trans Studio Action Zone near Jakarta, which is also due to open later this year.
CT Corp have dubbed Trans Studio Bali as “the world’s first social media theme park” while the new Jakarta attraction will focus on action stories told through richly-themed environments.
It has also been announced that Australian David Thompson has been appointed General Manager at Trans Studio Bali.
CT Corp also operates the indoor Trans Studio attraction in Bandung and a number of KidCity children’s parks in its TransMart shopping malls around the country.
