I had a client in Changzhou who created EMVs for Dark Rides. He was also interested in developing Special Effects Theaters (SFX). Here are just a few of my conceptual sketches for such a medium.
Theater in the Round
And lastly, Thrust Theater
My personal favorites are smaller SFX venues using robotic arms carrying LED Screens and live (or otherwise) 3/D players. I would love to pursue this line of thought but most of my clients do not think this far into the future nor have the money to invest, believing in very “safe” yet more mundane forms of entertainment.
Our team went into an abandoned two-story building in a commercial district, that at one time was a video game parlor. Below are concept sketches, plans, elevations and perspectives etc, trying to convince the client of a NEW use of an OLD space that would guarantee better use of floor space as well as create fun for the entire family and thus insure return visits.

Adding a Theme
The concept was used, but as is the wont with many Chinese clients, the mid-level managers saw no need to consult the original designer (me), so I have no pictures of finished product.

Our team went into a small village in Yunnan. The village was poor but quite famous as one of its citizen’s was Yang, the Father of the Green Movement in China (our title for him). The man is China’s version of Johnny Appleseed. We used the opportunity to facilitate current trends in Leisure Destinations and Village Regeneration techniques and successfully attained the government contract. Below are some sketches from that exercise.
