Tainan Mayor Huang Wei-che said that Longtian chacha Educational Cultural Park was designed as an education park with the Chianan Canal as its theme. The “Big Channel” immersive theater won a German iF Design Award for its use of digital technology to create a magical yet realistic landscape theater. Multimedia games and interactive devices encourage people to explore agriculture, ecology, irrigation, and everyday life through their five senses. Games teach about the background and operation of important irrigation infrastructure in Tainan, making the park a heritage education venue well-suited to family excursions and learning through play.
According to Director-General Lin Kuo-hua of the Tourism Bureau, Tainan City Government, Longtian chacha Educational Cultural Park was divided into the North Warehouse, South Warehouse, Small East Warehouse, Archeology, and Public Art zones. It is home to the interactive immersive landscape theater based on Chianan Canal, a river pachinko machine based on the irrigation system, a landscape hopscotch based on plains agriculture, and a river mixing station based on sounds from everyday life. Light and sound effects as well as interactive assets make for a fun experience that is popular among the children. Outside are public artworks such as Coral Lake and Bouncing Hill. In addition to emerging devices, the park also preserves industry ruins that testify to the “Four Railways” of the past. Historical buildings including the railway tracks, weigh statin, Taiwan Salt Longtian Transit Station and Warehouse” are lets people learn through technology the wisdom of builders over the past century .
