A flight simulator has now been added to the list of attractions at the under development $1.5 billion leisure and entertainment destination, The Red Sea Astrarium, in Aqaba, Jordan. Named Wonders!, the new feature will be done up by RGH Themed Entertainment, the designer and project manager for the entire development set on 184 acres and featuring four upscale hotels and a Star Trek theme park.
Future visitors will be able to get on board custom-built ‘flying machines’ and take in sights such as the Lighthouse of Alexandria before it crumbled into the sea, the landscape of the Acropolis, and the desert city of Petra among others.
Vekoma Rides Manufacturing, the roller-coaster maker, will build the ride system utilizing i-Ride immersive inverted 4D simulator technology from Brogent Technologies.
“The Wonders! attraction is the perfect addition to the Old Waterfront section of the resort,” said Randa Ayoubi, RGH’s CEO. “It provides a themed centerpiece of old-world exploration and fascination.”
