Brogent’s i-Ride Flying Theatre opens at Karavansaray in Kazakhstan
In mid-April Altyn Samruk, Central Asia’s biggest flying theatre opened in Turkestan, one of the ancient cities of Kazakhstan. This Brogent-made ride provides guests with a unique experience of the Kazakh culture. Riders enter a beautiful egg-shaped building to join the mythical bird Samruk on a flight through history, from the Great Silk Road through to modern Kazakhstan.
The 40 seat flying theatre is housed in an iconic golden egg shaped building in the newly opened tourist complex and shopping mall Karavansaray, the largest mall in Central Asia capable of receiving up to 300,000 visitors a year. Designed to look like the complex came right out of an Eastern fairy tale, the site includes two themed hotels, a shopping mall, a food court, and various types of entertainment. Guests have the opportunity to become acquainted with the history of Turkestan through interactions with historical figures, national sports, crafts, and shows.
Karavansaray adds another tourist attraction to Turkestan, which is famous for the UNESCO world heritage site of the Mausoleum of Khoja Ahmed Yasawi, a building that dates back to the 14th century.
Altyn Samruk at Karavansaray is one of many flying theatre projects around the world that Brogent has continued to work on this past year despite challenges with COVID-19. It is expected that 20 projects will be completed and ready to open this year in countries such as the United States, China, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Canada, Japan, and Vietnam.
