FUNA International acknowledges Chimelong’s Ocean Kingdom winning of the prestigious Themed Entertainment Association’s Thea Award for Outstanding Achievement 2014. The award recognizes the quality of service, tourists’ experiences and creativity of Chimelong’s Ocean Kingdom, a new theme park located in Zhuhai, China.
TEA President Monty Lunde praised Chimelong’s Ocean Kingdom as “outstanding among all the 169 candidates,” further describing the experience for tourists as “unforgettable.” The 125-acre theme park holds five Guinness World Records for the world’s largest aquarium, aquarium tank, underwater viewing dome, aquarium window and acrylic panel.
“A sincere congratulations, the park is amazing and we are proud to have been involved. Their Thea Award is well deserved,” says Scott Arnold, Vice President of Design and Engineering for FUNA. “Being involved in this project presented us the rare opportunity to design systems from the ground up that will allow for future expansion of the theme park. It gave us the ability to fully maximize the current technologies available.”
FUNA is honored to have played a role in the development of the theme park. FUNA designed, installed and commissioned a park-wide audio system for zoned background music, performance audio and park-wide paging; a parade audio and control system featuring on-board audio for parade floats and synchronized audio playback from land-based speakers located around the parade route and finally; a Lagoon Show audio system. All of these systems work in conjunction to seamlessly hand off audio between them.
The Thea Awards ceremony takes place on March 21, 2015 at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. FUNA will be there to both congratulate Chimelong and take part in the celebration as a valued member of the project team.
FUNA specializes in Audio, Video, Lighting and Show Control design and integration for theme parks, attractions, museums and cruise ship industries.
