Yas Waterworld goes 5D and cy­cle all night at Al Wathba

3D and 4D are yes­ter­day’s news – Yas Waterworld is bring­ing 5D to the cap­i­tal. Cine­s­plash is a new in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence that will im­merse view­ers in around 50 cen­time­tres of wa­ter, and the ride in­cludes other spe­cial ef­fects such as spray­ing wa­ter, ex­plo­sions, rain, wa­ter­falls and neck blasts.

The new ride on Yas Is­land is set to open this month and will present the his­tory of the UAE, us­ing state-of-the art tech­nol­ogy, to bring the story to life.

The 36-seat the­atre will screen an ex­clu­sive short film called The Leg­end Of The Lost Pearl, which has been de­signed specif­i­cally for 5D cin­ema. The film fo­cuses on the UAE’s pearl­div­ing her­itage and lasts ap­prox­i­mately 12 min­utes and stars Dana, one of the wa­ter park’s char­ac­ters, as she goes on a quest to find her vil­lage’s Mother Pearl. The ride also fea­tures fog, wind and three de­grees of mo­tion for an im­mer­sive ef­fect. Tick­ets will be priced at Dhs30, on top of stan­dard park en­try fees.
