Leading creator of 5D immersive and interactive media-based attractions, Triotech, has scooped a fistful of awards for two of its dark ride projects.

The European Star Awards have placed LEGO® NINJAGO® The Ride at LEGOLAND®  Deutschland among Europe’s Best New Rides for 2017.

In addition, the ParkscoutPlus awards have honoured Ghostbusters 5D and LEGO® NINJAGO® The Ride (LEGOLAND® Deutschland) as two of Germany’s Best New Rides for 2017.

European Star Awards, hosted by the Kirmes & Park Revue, are among the most highly-sought after honours in the European amusement industry.

The ParkscoutPlus awards are newly-established in the region and are supported by German technology company, TechniSat.

Triotech interactive 5D dark rides scoop a trio of European awards

Ernest Yale, Triotech’s President and CEO, said it was ‘very exciting’ to be recognised by two separate awards programmes.

“Both LEGO® NINJAGO® The Ride and Ghostbusters 5D feature industry-first characteristics and have a wide audience appeal,” he added. “In both projects, we were able to leverage the strong intellectual properties into compelling interactive experiences.”

Maestro™ hand gesture technology

LEGO® NINJAGO® The Ride features the company’s industry-leading Maestro™ hand gesture technology. This allows guests to interact with the content using their hands instead of a weapon-like device.

For Ghostbusters 5D, Triotech incorporated a physical ‘ghost trap’ where riders capture
ghosts and slimers using their interactive gamma-ray devices.
