Wonderla Holidays Limited, India’s No#1 amusement park operator today announced the inauguration of its latest attraction ‘Mission Interstellar’ at Wonderla Hyderabad. The company has invested Rs. 40 Cr to build India’s first space flying experience ride.
The ride has been developed in collaboration with leading US and European theme park design companies while installation and integration was managed completely by Wonderla Engineering team. It boasts impressive technical features:
- Largest screen in India: 3500 sqft parabolic screen
- 4K resolution Laser projector ~ Projects HD image using laser; 1st time in India
- Hydraulic lift seating system for 60 pax from Italy to make the ride real and immersive
- Housed in an 8-story tall building with a 23-meter dome-shaped roof.
