Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products and 3DBA are helping to cool down the Taman Impian Jaya Ancol resort in Jakarta, Indonesia, with an Ice Age-themed attraction.
Set to open this month, Ice Age Arctic Adventure will give resort guests a private arctic tour from Sid in an immersive flume ride from Hopkins’ Rides. They can also face Captain Gutt and his minions on the Kontiki Boat Ride from Zierer.
“The new Ice Age attraction at Ancol is a first for this region of the world, and this expansion is part of our overall commitment to allow fans to experience Ice Age and its characters in new and innovative ways,” says Greg Lombardo, vice president, global location-based entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. “This project is further proof of the incredible popularity that Ice Age enjoys around the globe and specifically in the very important territory of South East Asia.”
The newest film in the franchise, Ice Age 5, is slated for release in 2016.
“Ice Age is a global phenomenon and we are thrilled that it will be the first intellectual property Ancol has ever worked with in developing a new attraction,” says Arinta Wahyuningrum, project manager and head of the project’s design team, Taman Impian Jaya Ancol resort. “As Indonesia’s No. 1 theme park and resort destination, we are continually developing the property to ensure our guests receive world-class experiences and bringing the Ice Age Arctic Adventure to the resort in 2014 allows us to add another first to our existing portfolio of fantastic rides and attractions.”
