On the 19th of March 2005, the gates of the Film and
Entertainment Park in Bottrop will be opening under a new name and
with several new attractions. The park's management is
particularly thrilled to be able to present the first Ice Age ride
in the world. The animated international box office hit "Ice
Age" with its loveable characters Scrat (the squirrel), Sid
(the sloth), and Manny (the mammoth) has inspired a family water
ride in the renamed children's world "Wonderland Studios".
Another highlight awaiting visitors next season is the madcap
SpongeBob SquarePants, who will be taking up residence in
the new 4D cinema. SpongeBob SquarePants is a hugely
successful American TV series that is also shown in Germany on
Super RTL, a german broadcast station, and that is
fast becoming a firm favourite.
The 4D film, created exclusively for the park, will be shown in
the newly refurbished Roxy cinema. Thanks to the new
technology, with air, water and vibration effects integrated into
the seats, the audience will find itself completed immersed in
chatterbox SpongeBob SquarePants' underwater world Bikini
The third new attraction of the 2005 season is the new flight
simulation adventure in the former Batman Adventure.
The mad inventor Horace Garrison Wells takes visitors
along on a wild journey through time on his Time Rider.
This attraction has been exclusively designed for Movie Park
Germany by Attraction Media & Entertainment, Inc.
The new Ice Age attraction is not the only new addition
to the Children's World (Kinderland): new loveable characters such
as a stuntman or a director welcome the children to the Wonderland
Studios and have been appointed the new park mascots.
"We are very proud to be able to present our visitors with
their favourite cartoon heroes and exciting rides in the upcoming
season. Families in particular can look forward to fantastic new
attractions in 2005", announces Timothy L. Ruedy,
General Manager of Movie Park Germany.
