08 Apr New WindstarZ for Global Village
A highly successful Zamperla ride for the most successful park in the Middle East
Global Village Dubai is the leading seasonal, cultural extravaganza in the region and offers visitors a truly amazing array of festivals, shopping and entertainment.
It reopened its doors to the public on November 1, 2017, for its 22nd. season and while many of the popular attraction’s previous features remain, the rides area has been totally refreshed.
In fact it has been designed to look like carnivals from all over the world, with themed music and lights, and each of the 28 rides and 34 games have been named after major world cities. As part of the renovation process, Global Village chose to incorporate the first WindstarZ to be operated in the Middle East area.
With its colorful and attractive design, the original WindstarZ interactivity elements allow Global Village riders to be captains of their own experience by controlling the movement of the sail on their personal ‘hang glider.’ Additionally, as well as the fun of the ride itself, a special light package custom made for Global Village ensures the lighting on the attraction is even more appealing after dark.
Following the success of the ride in Global Village, it will soon also be possible to ride a WindstarZ in Oman too, where another example of the ride is due to open in the near future.
