Ghostinium Phuket brings Hollywood creatures to life at new attraction

THRILLER: Phuket is home to various exotic species, but until recently, Tyrannosaurus rex, pterodactylus and giant gorilla were not among them. Everything changed in early April when the Ghostinium animatronic centre opened at HomeWorks in Central Festival East.

The person behind this project is Vadim Gostev who has decades of experience in creating lifelike creatures and visual effects for movies. The dinosaurs are surrounded by painstaking detail: running lava, stars, planetoids and more. Brought to life by cutting-edge technology, they move, breath, throb and stir in the most natural way. That is what makes modern blockbusters so realistic, and that is what’s hiding inside Ghostinium Phuket.

Mr Gostev confirms that some of the creatures he brought to Phuket represent a true Hollywood level of technology – the pterodactylus is fully identical to the one from ‘Jurassic Park’. Others are also close relatives of those you have seen on the screen.

The centre has been designed to represent an alien spaceship that landed in Phuket after centuries of collecting rare species from around the galaxy for contemporary humans to learn more about them.

As soon as you go through the door, two humanmother-tongue. After stepping over a flow of boiling lava, you meet a giant spider in its nest. Don’t be scared when it starts crawling towards you, it does not bite (its less fortunate prey can be seen in the web).

The acoustics in the rooms are impressive, intense artistry that makes your heart soar. Even understanding that the beast is not real doesn’t help: the appearance and movements of the dinosaur are so realistic that they immediately appeal to the unconscious. It takes some time for the rationale of your mind to kick in and override the instinct to run.

In further rooms, more amazing creatures are waiting. These include a giant snake, a prehistoric crocodile, a pterodactylus and an absolutely charming Triceratops. The tricorn is so captivating that you are even ready to petoids welcome you and tell about their mission. Moving from one room to another, you encounter various species, from Earth and far beyond. The first ones are three dancing aliens, singing a song in their alien language, which is actually Kazakh, Mr Gostev’s it. If you have a chance to do so, you will discover that the creatures at Ghostinium not only look, but also feel real. Mr Gostev explains that both natural and composite materials were used to create the animals. The giant King Kong is dressed in yak wool and 200 yaks had to contribute to make the ape so realistic.

The overall tour around the spaceship takes about 30 minutes, and on your quest you will see way more than listed above. Don’t let us tell you too much and spoil the quest.

Ghostinium Phuket is located on the second floor of Central Festival East (next to homeWorks). The venue is open to the public Tuesday to Sunday, from noon till 8pm. During its promotion period tickets are sold at B400 (adult) and B300 kids. For more information and updates, please go to facebook.com/ghostiniumphuket
