London/Wels, 12 October 2016.
Kraftwerk Living Technologies, international specialist in the field of audiovisual system integration headquartered in Wels (AT), was honored with an AV Award in the category “Entertainment Venue of the Year” at a glamorous award ceremony in London late September. The record-breaking and award-winning project currently holding two Guinness World Records is the world’s largest 4D Theater and was designed and realized by the experts from Wels. The flagship attraction of the Chinese theme park Chimelong Ocean Kingdom in Zhuhai was opened in June of 2015 and seats a total of 1000 people – allowing for an hourly throughput of almost 3000 people.
Hat-trick for 5D Castle Theater
Nominated in the “Best Entertainment Venue of the Year” category, the 5D Castle Theater at Chimelong Ocean Kingdom was up against tough competition. All the greater was the joy of the Kraftwerk Living Technologies team, when they were announced the winner in the “Best Entertainment Venue of the Year” category in front of over 1200 attendees. “We aimed at creating a visitor attraction that surpasses any existing experience by not only its size, but also its quality, following the credo: Go big and be unforgettable,” says Christian Hofer, Managing Partner and Technical Director at Kraftwerk Living Technologies. “And together with an incredibly visionary client, great partners and suppliers as well as an amazing Kraftwerk Living Technologies team, we managed to do so. We could not be more excited about winning this award and getting such great recognition for the project all across the industry”, he adds. The AV Award was the third honor received for the 5D Castle Theater and followed an InAVation Award for “Most InAVative International Project” in February and an InstallAward as “Best Visitor Attraction Project” in June.
