In der Stadt "Punta Cuna" am östlichsten Ende der Dominikanische Republik soll mit dem Katmandu Park Anfang 2023 ein Themenpark mit 4 Hauptattraktionen der Firma "Falcon’s Creative" entstehen. Das interessante daran ist, das der Hersteller/die Gruppe "Falcon's", die sonst eher die Masterplanungen/Planungen von Attraktionen übernehmen, den Park auch selbst betreiben werden. Dafür wurde die Unterfirma "Falcon's Beyond" gegründet. Mir war bisher auch gar nicht bekannt, das es auf Mallorca schon so einen Katmandu Park gibt.


Die vier Hauptattraktionen:
  • Voyage of the Fathom Wanderer: The park will feature its first-ever Suspended Theater attraction, where guests will join Kilgore Goode on an underwater mission to protect the Hidden Realm of Azurlan from a sea monster. For this attraction, guests enter and begin the experience in what appears to be a standard widescreen theater experience. But, unlike experiences that may exist in other parks around the world, there is a key element of surprise: guests are swiftly but elegantly lifted through the air and placed in front of another giant, compound curved screen, ushering them inside the story. Riders will soar through epic adventures, as this unparalleled attraction delivers the unique sensation of flight in a whole new way.
  • Challenge of the Mad Mage: The ON!X Theater attraction will reimagine the traditional 4D interactive theater with an impressive array of features seamlessly blended with advanced technology. Here, an Explorer Mage named Alvis challenges guests to a blaster duel through the Hidden Realms. A fully interactive real-time system gives every player the agency to direct the outcome of the action and even affect the narrative that unfolds before them on the massive, cinema-style screen, warranting repeatability to further discover new realms and interactions. A unique targeting system provides accurate and persistent positional tracking that not only detects where players aim, but where and how they move their blasters. Simultaneously, electric motion seats provide guests with multi-sensory feedback in the form of poking, tickling, vibration, wind, air blast, water mist, scent, localized speakers in headrests, and more.
  • Legend of the Desirata: A highly sophisticated attraction typically found only at the world’s biggest theme parks, the 4D Dark Ride attraction will be an immersive experience that tells the Katmandu origin story and empowers guests to feel the thrill of adventure through movement. Seamlessly blending scenic elements and media, erasing the lines between reality and imagination, guests follow inventor and explorer Kilgore Goode into the Himalayas in a dynamically moving vehicle to experience his journey into the Hidden Realms as he discovers the mysterious Desirata. The attraction features multiple integrated projection screens, delivering high-framerate and high-fidelity stereoscopic 3D media content, immersive audio, lighting effects, wind effects and stunning scenic elements throughout the guest journey. The action in the rider’s surroundings and on the screens is choreographed with the vehicle’s movement, making it feel as if the rider is truly immersed in the story alongside the characters.
  • EtherQuest: This interactive walk-through attraction will make its global debut at Katmandu Park | Punta Cana. The attraction combines proprietary technologies, elaborate scenic elements, immersive projection and an interactive gameplay journey to reimagine a traditional walk-through experience. Several of the rooms feature projection on all four walls to transport guests from the halls of “Jadu” (the house of Katmandu) into the Hidden Realms to defeat powerful Explorer Mages with various interactive props, find an invaluable EtherMetal ember and get back home. To give guests the chance to explore, play and influence their experience, this attraction uses an action-packed interactive walk-through system, where guests are really the main characters of their own adventure.

Weitere Attraktionen:
Additional attractions at Katmandu | Park Punta Cana will include Expedition Golf, a 36-hole mini golf course charting over mountains and inside caves, High Point Adventure, an outdoor ropes course experience, and The Quadagon, featuring four unique indoor climbing courses for both adults and kids. The centerpiece of the park’s plaza will be the Wheel of Infinite Wonder, a Katmandu-themed carousel with custom figures inspired by creatures and characters from the Hidden Realms. The park will offer several themed food and beverage venues, carnival-style games, retail shops and an arcade.Each guest of Katmandu Park | Punta Cana will receive a smart wristband that carries their attraction passes, enables cashless payments and grants them their own unique and virtual identity with BeyondME™, a new free-to-use fan loyalty and online game platform for all ages. Through it, guests will be able to customize their own BeyondME persona, personalize their avatar, gain and spend experience points as virtual currency, called XP, and level up their status for additional benefits. In addition to the real-life experiences inside the park, BeyondME will connect to various digital experiences, such as mobile games, Roblox and online shopping, to further earn and redeem XP.The theme park industry has long been dominated by traditional “mega park” experiences – attractions scattered across a massive footprint. With Katmandu Park, Falcon’s will offer a revolutionary alternative through a “Big Experience/Small Footprint” theme park concept, offering world-class experiences in a smaller landscape. Katmandu Parks will be connected to premier resort destinations, providing consumers a unique “resortainment” hospitality experience that seamlessly blends extraordinary entertainment experiences with premium resort amenities. The first of these new resorts, Falcon’s Resort by Meliá | All Suites Punta Cana, will debut in December 2022 and is located just steps away from the park.

Weitere dieser Park könnten auch in anderen Urlaubsdestinationen entstehen:

Mal sehen ob so ein Park wirklich auch auf Teneriffa entsteht :)
