Just on the edge of the previous year, Vietnamese theme park VinWonders Nha Trang opened their brand new dark ride Tata World River Journey. Since 24 December 2022, guests are allowed to explore the world of Princess Tata for themselves. The project has been billed as an immersive Dark Boat Ride Experience from Interlink, who worked on the attraction alongside Jora Vision, United Art, LifeFormations, Red Raion, and IMAscore.
Tata World River Adventure marks a major step for VinWonders Nha Trang, opening their first large-scale dark ride. The ride cost approx. US$10,000,000 and fills a space of 4542m2. Guests board one of seven boats that take them through 11 unique scenes, with an IP based theme that came from a popular stage show within the park itself. John Davies, Commercial Director at Interlink, commented on “how proud the company are to have worked on such a prestigious project, which is the first of it’s kind in Vietnam.”
In Tata World River Adventure, riders are taken into a fairytale environment. The experience starts at the Fairytale Library, which functions as queue line and culminates into a pre-show, where guests are told the tale of Princess Tata and the Pearl of Happiness. The Pearl of Happiness is the keeper of tranquility in Van Hoa, the peacuful and exotic place which is home to Princess Tata. One day, the pearl is taken by the Dark Princess, leaving riders with the task of retrieving it, for which they embarks on the boats taking them through the dark ride.
