Triotech opens 200th XD Dark Ride at Quebec’s Mega Parc


After Berlin, New York, San Francisco, Shanghai and Paris, Triotech has just opened its 200th XD Dark Ride interactive theater in the Méga Parc des Galeries de la Capitale, a Quebec City indoor amusement park.

“The XD Dark Ride interactive theatre is designed for the whole family and has contributed to our international reach for nearly 15 years,” said Triotech founding president Ernest Yale. “It is truly an iconic attraction for Triotech, offering an intense multi-sensory adventure combined with cutting-edge technology and special effects that provide the user with the best experience there is. We are proud to have set up our 200th XD Dark Ride interactive theatre in Quebec City, as it enjoys a resounding success around the world.”

Installed for the first time in Berlin in 2011 and recipient of the IAAPA Brass Ring award in the best-new-product category in 2013, the XD Dark Ride interactive theater integrates the world’s fastest targeting system, curved screen and real-time stereoscopic 3D images with special effects. The real-time 3D images and individual scoring system create a unique dynamic based on healthy competition.

Méga Parc des Galeries de la Capitale has named Triotech’s XD Dark Ride “The Cortex” and it is already one of their most popular attractions. Up to eight players can play and compete together at any one time. It is worth noting that the Méga Parc operates 18 rides and attractions and very recently invested $52 million in a complete revamp of the parc.
