The Cine 2000
was a must have attraction in the early eighties, with many
other parks around the country also installing them at about
the same time.
The idea behind
the Cine 2000, was to immerse the visitors in a movie. The
film was shown in a large dome, with the film being projected
onto around two-thirds of the inside. This meant that just
about anywhere you stood in the dome (and they did like you
to stand!) you had complete, unbroken vision.
The movie itself
was made up of specially filmed scenes on rollercoasters,
racing cars, and such like. The idea worked well, and many
times I can remember people falling over, as they completely
lost their sense of balance while watching.
due to it's proximity to the Pirate Ship, it was common for
people to be taken quite ill during the performance, if they
had just ridden the Pirate Ship.
