All-New! Enchanted Kingdom’s Wet and Wild Rollicking Christmas
Bring your loved ones and be immersed in true Christmas spirit
This Christmas will be one to remember, as Enchanted Kingdom, the country’s first and only world-class theme park lights up the season with all-new immersive offerings.From December 2, 2007 to January 6, 2008, guests can experience new attractions and entertainment that will bring a never-before-seen radiance to the festive season. It is going to be a wet, wild and rollicking Christmas at Enchanted
Kingdom to add to the cool breeze of December starting with the debut of the new ridefilm, SpongeBob Squarepants, The Ride!
The 60-ride motion seats of the Rialto Theatre takes guests for a ride down Bikini Bottom with its famous citizen, SpongeBob Squarepants.
The next level of combat gaming is now here!
After Airsoft and Paintball comes Triassic Tag, a version of Battlefield Live, a new live action combat game using completely safe infra red light technology. Triassic Tag is the first in the country and is Enchanted Kingdom’s latest attraction. The gadgets used in the game are built and developed in
Australia and utilize infra red light technology instead of paint balls and compressed air.
According to Triassic Tag arena Scottish game operator, Ian Meikle, the infra-red technology makes the game a fun and safe game to play for everybody. Meikle, a former engineer of the British Army, Corps of the Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers (R.E.M.E.) for over 15 years remarks, “There are NO physical missiles that can hurt players. Players consistently comment that they had more fun than expected.” “Nothing comes closer to real combat battle than this,” adds Ian, who was also trained in unarmed combat, jungle warfare, winter survival, and winter warfare. “The weapons fire a high velocity infra red light bullet (pulse) that is detected by sensors worn on the head and on the gun. When players are hit, the gun makes a loud noise, the sensors flash and indicates that the player loses a “life.” Each player is given five lives, although the guns can be set for different numbers of lives. The weapon also displays ammunition left,” says Peter Stevens, Operations Director of Triassic Tag and a former Senior Superintendent of the Royal Hong Kong Police Force for 21 years. In the game played most commonly called, “Death Match,” once a player has been hit five times, the gun makes a louder noise and turns off, preventing cheating. The player then needs to go back to the team referee for re-spawning (resetting) of the gun, so that the player can go back and re-join the game. The team that loses the least number of lives wins.
“The game guarantees minutes of adrenaline-pumping action that is definitely something new for the park guests, the excitement actually stays with you,” adds Peter.
