Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, located in Vallejo, Calif., has announced that the theme park will open the world’s first Pacific Rim 5-D ride attraction. Based on Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 sci-fi film “Pacific Rim,” in which humans battle against monstrous creatures from another world, the ride will combine 4-D graphics with explosive special effects. The attraction will be located in the SimEx-Iwerks Turbo Theater, which has remained unused since the park opened in 2008.
While a grand-opening date has yet to be released, the theme park ran special limited sneak previews in late January.
“Bringing in an intense, high-energy and popular movie like ‘Pacific Rim’ to our Iwerks 5D Theater is a great addition to our thrill lineup,” said Don McCoy, president of Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.
