Alterface’s recently launched Erratic® Ride is the first non-linear mixed-media ride ever with dynamic scene changing, whereby players can determine the sequence depending on their ranking and preferences. It fully immerses and engages them into the story, which becomes more dynamic and fun. Furthermore, it can be installed on a relatively small space, yet with high throughput. The first installation will take place at Walibi, one of the largest parks in Belgium and owned by Compagnie des Alpes.
This compact Erratic® Ride is the first member of a new family of “visitor-centric” experiences. It is aimed at space conscious venues and represents a total solution for anyone who wants a true dark ride experience on a limited footprint. “The user experience was the starting point of our reflection, the technical details followed, making sure that transitions from one scene to another are smooth and the limited footprint has rather an enhancing than a limiting impact.” adds Benoit Cornet.
“The new Erratic® Ride is the perfect example of a next-generation attraction which offers a more dynamic and coherent media experience. It can be easily installed at any park or indoor location. The movie and popcorn theme is universal and suited for young and old but we can implement any other IP or character of choice. With this new world-class yet affordable ride Alterface demonstrates once again its commitment to developing innovative concepts for customers to offer the best possible ride at their venue.” concludes Ben Cornet.
The House: The world first Interactive 5D Haunted House by Alterface The House is a very ambitious Dark Ride project now open in Branson, Mo, USA (A.K.A ‘The Castle of Chaos'). It's a unique interactive show which combines the best of interactive theatres, dark rides and 4D cinemas. It's a 3D movie, a ride and a game in just one room.
Gathered on a rotating platform, featuring themed seats, the disoriented players quickly move from one screen to another. They are armed with a gun and try to react to the surprises that spring up everywhere. The 3D images are completed with real effects in the room and many animatronics while the raging elements, lights and sounds create a unique and frightening atmosphere.
CinemAction is the name of Alterface’s solution for Interactive Theaters. An Interactive Theater is an installation where audiences of various sizes
are sitting together, equipped with an interactive device (gun, picture cameras..) can interact with a very large screen located just in front of them.
But there is more to it - a special camera, located right in front of the players takes a picture of the audience and best and worst players will appear, for real, right in from of their fellow teammates. Laughters guaranteed!
The cinemaction modular hardware features a great variety of add ons that are used in all its different contents - Special effects (wind, explosion, water sprays or aromatech) or enhancements (vibrating seats, themed interior or ticket redemption systems) are available to even further increase the visitor’s experience.
Put guests right in the heart of the action as they become gun-slinging deputies chasing the bad guys out of town (Deperados), furious pirates chasing spooky skeletons out of the harbor (Pirate’s Plunder), or photo reporters in a quest for rare fish (Sea Safari, 3D)!
The attractions are designed to entertain from five to 80 people and can accommodate up to 640 people per hour.
Over the years, ‘traditional’ dark rides have given way to new, interactive experiences – which add a game element to their emotional content.
CinemAction /M (M stands for mobile) and CinemAction /P (P stands for pedestrian) are both members of CinemAction family, a technology developed by Alterface to make almost everything interactive.
