Mermaid - The Mysterious Pearl

Category: Interactive 360 Experience

Untitled Studios


Mermaid is a 4D immersive experience located at Haichang Ocean Park theme park in Shanghai, China. Untitled Studios was approached by Haichang to design and create a fully immersive 3D experience based on the story of a mermaid and her quest to save the world. During the creative process, we refined the characters of Mermaid and the ride's sea creature family, as well as creating the environmental background of the 8-minute animated universe. Guests are transported into a state of the art 4D film that, along with surprising sensory elements, propels them into the ultimate 'Mermaid ride' experience. The experience becomes even more immersive with the creation of a uniquely designed ride, each equipped with seven different special effects that repeat numerous times in tandem with the 3D animation, including vertical drops and horizontal motions!
