After a busy year of opening rides around the world in 2019, Brogent Technologies Inc. hints at exciting additions in the coming months too.
Not long after opening THE LEGO MOVIE Masters of Flight m-Ride at Legoland Florida, Brogent plans to open another version “in the heart of Times Square” in 2020, Director of Innovation Andy Kiang reported at a news conference held during the IAAPA Expo in Orlando, Florida, this week. Running Subway Productions, an entertainment company based in New York, is a partner for what is expected to be the flagship for Brogent’s flying theater attractions. Further details are not yet available. Five additional m-Rides are planned for elsewhere around the globe next year.
A new turnkey entertainment complex is also on the horizon. The crux will be an indoor racing car game. “Instead of a track you’ll be racing on a simulator,” Kiang explained, noting that a simulator is safer than real cars, which in turn lowers insurance costs.
The simulators – sleek in look – will be the center of a complete entertainment concept that will include entertainment, and food and beverage areas as chosen by the owners.
