Montreal, QC, Canada — TRIOTECH announces the very first installation an Interactive Dark Ride attraction in Turkey. The attraction will be operated in partnership with FunLab Cevahir, Turkey’s leader in Family Entertainment Centers.
Mr. Ernest Yale, President and CEO of TRIOTECH stated: “We are very happy to open this Interactive Dark Ride with a strong local partner. FunLab’s expertise in the amusement and entertainment world is extremely strong.”
In this new attraction, to be called “Zombi”, TRIOTECH has designed and produced the animation and gaming system that allows guests to experience a 3D adventure enhanced with 4D effects and interactivity. The ride system has been provided by Gosetto srl of Treviso in Italy.
In “Zombi”, guests ride aboard four-person police-themed vehicles and embark on a thrilling family adventure. There are six carts with four interactive scenes and the same number of non-interactive scenes. The 216 feet long ride blends media-based interactivity with 4D effects. An extensive physical décor and theming completes the immersion for riders.
