Video: Paultons Park reveals new details of 4D cinema for 2013

Paultons Park 4-D Cinema

Paultons Park has revealed further details of its planned 4D cinema attraction for the 2013 season, which will form part of a new themed area.

The cinema will be located in the building that formerly housed the Romany Experience, and will initially show The Curse of Skull Rock. It will be similar in style to the 4D cinemas that have been installed at theme parks all over the world in recent years, boasting 3D projection technology, moving seats and special effects such as water sprays.

The Curse of Skull Rock's plot will sound familiar to Pirates of the Caribbean fans, featuring as it does a quest to find a lost, cursed treasure. The film was previously shown in Drayton Manor's 4D cinema during the 2009 season.

A video update on the construction of the new attraction at Paultons Park is embedded below:

The 4D cinema will be one element of a new area dubbed Show Street, which will be an overhaul of the warehouses that once hosted the Romany Experience and the Village Life museum. It will consist of false building facades featuring an Art Deco style.

The park will also make a raft of other minor changes for the 2013 season, including adding updated ticket kiosks, new paving at the park's entrance and a new Baby Care Centre and First Aid Centre. It is working towards a complete replacement of its dated entrance area, which will include new shops and dining locations.

The park has invested heavily in new attractions over the past two years, installing the UK exclusive Peppa Pig World area in 2011, and following this with the debut of drop tower ride Magma in 2012.
