Madagascar Mad Pursuit

MOTIONGATE, Dubai Parks and Resorts


Paragon Creative’s commission involved working on the various movie based rides in different areas of the park including Madagascar: Mad Pursuit, an exciting indoor rollercoaster where guests must escape the obsessive animal control officer Captain DuBois. Paragon Creative built the delightful queue areas as well as many on-ride show sets and special effects for this ride, which were meticulously integrated with the rollercoaster to create a thrilling ride experience. 


We are proud to have completed a variety of theming, scenery and props for multiple world-class rides at the recently opened MOTIONGATE Dubai, in what could well be our most ambitious Theme Park project to date. As part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, MOTIONGATE Dubai showcases rides and attractions based on popular Hollywood movie franchises from world-famous studios DreamWorks, Columbia Pictures and Lionsgate.

Thematic items that Paragon Creative brought to life include the immersive themed queue area that winds through a series of circus tents featuring posters and images of the popular Madagascar characters as well as a train boxcar filled with props from the film. 

The ride experience starts with a high-speed launch that sends the coaster through a high-tech launch tunnel.

The tunnel some 30 meters in length is wrapped with a low-resolution video curtain and multiple rings of LED neon all of which animate when the car is launched down the tunnel. Once catapulted in to the main ride area multiple sequenced rings of light and fire are triggered which encase the track some 5 meters in diameter and supported at high level. Various lighting effect ‘fireworks’ and vapour systems complete the ride effects. 

Paragon not only integrated and suspended props and scenery around the scenery, but also around high tech animatronics to immerse guests into the world created by Dreamworks Animation.
