Escape the Summer Heat at the Brand New Ice Age 4D Cinema at Madame Tussauds Bangkok

Introducing our brand new 4D cinema project, WGC provided all of the acoustic design and specifications, part of the lighting inside the theatre, and also lighting for the attraction area. Now that the theatre is open with daily audiences pouring in and raving about the experience, we can enjoy all of the hard work that went into making this project great. From beginning to end the project manager, Mr. Markus Fuehrer of Cornerstone Project Management led a very strong and organized team through a very difficult construction process.

The theatre being located in an area of Siam Discovery, just below the roof and just above Madame Tussauds existing wax museum, required significant and creative structural engineering which was provided by BECA. Once this was solved the project moved rapidly with the acoustic walls being built quickly allowing the theatre internals to be constructed and ready for opening night.

We are extremely pleased with the results and are looking forward to the next collaboration with Madame Tussauds.


The Best 4D Movie Experience in Bangkok: Madame Tussauds Construction Update

Currently the 4D seating is being installed, these specialized theater seats have many features including vibration, smell, moisture, tickling, poking and other sensations. The 4D effect chairs are connected to the dramatic intention of the movie by automated controls and hydraulic and pneumatic pumps.

A JBL theater speaker system is being installed and will soon be ready for acoustic tuning. The installation of the video projectors and screens will be completed over the next few days. When all of the equipment is installed the system will be controlled by a computer that will send out the control signals to engage the trigger of the 4D sensations. All of the effects that occur in the theater in synchronization with the film will provide a very engaging cinematic experience.
