When it opens, Kingdom of Poseidon will have an array of rides, shows and unique experiences based upon stories of Poseidon (the sea god in Greek mythology,) and other known ocean-related adventure tales. Using a range of “real world” 4D effects and making use of the latest in video mapping, 3D, and other projection technologies, guests will experience an array of undersea, oversea, and by-the-sea attractions.

According to the design firm, it aims to create something entirely different with Kingdom of Poseidon by providing new ways by which to involve park guests.

The Goddard Group has a number of large-scale projects for a variety of clients located across China.
