Pixowl Launches Wonder Park Magic Rides, Amusement Park Building Adventure Based on “Wonder Park” Film
Build and Manage the Theme Park of Your Dreams in Mobile Simulation Game for iOS and Android, the Official Park Building Game of the New Film from Paramount Pictures
SAN FRANCISCO, March 14, 2019 - Pixowl, a leading creator of “make your own world” experiences, today announced it has launched Wonder Park Magic Rides, a new amusement park building adventure game, on the App Store and Google Play. As the official park building game of the new “Wonder Park” animated film from Paramount Pictures opening tomorrow, Wonder Park Magic Rides allows players to create the amusement park of their dreams with June, Boomer, and the rest of the Wonder Park gang. As seen in today’s launch trailer, players will build and customize their theme park, create fully animated rides, interact with June and other film characters, and entertain visitors to put the wonder in their Wonder Park.
In Wonder Park Magic Rides, players can become the creator of the most wonderful park on the planet with awesome roller coasters, stunning attractions, and colorful decorations. Starting with an abandoned park, players create their own amusement park experience including everything from wonderiffic rides to sweet and savory treats for visitors. It’s more than building a park—it’s also about decorating and customizing your park and keeping visitors happy and excited! Favorite characters from the “Wonder Park” movie such as June, Boomer, and Greta are on hand to help players via narrative quests that unfold the story of the park.
"Wonder Park Magic Rides brings to mobile the thrill of creating your own amusement park with beloved characters from the film,” said Arthur Madrid, CEO and Co-Founder of Pixowl. “Players can create their own rich park adventure as they build attractions, interact with characters, craft items, and strive to keep visitors happy while stopping pesky Chimpanzombies from destroying their creations!"
In addition to the creative fun of building your amusement park, Wonder Park Magic Rides offers a sophisticated park management simulation. Players will not only craft rides and similar attractions, but also build concession stands and gather ingredients to craft snacks such as burgers, popcorn, and candy apples to increase visitor satisfaction. It’s up to the player to attract more visitors and keep them happy with fun rides and food and drinks—all of which creates funds to expand the park. Players can amass an assortment of cute, collectible Wonder Chimps while keeping an eye out to make sure that destructive Chimpanzombies don’t mess up their hard work! It’s not easy to run a Wonder Park, after all!
