Holovis to Launch Next Generation Immersive Dark Ride Technology at EAS 2014.


Holovis will launch its next generation dark ride technology at EAS 2014. Immersive content and real time media combine with gaming integration,  accurate motion and interactivity.

The Lost Cove, a 3D immersive experience for multiple players, is the latest interactive game title in the DomeRider™  series from Holovis.

Players seek The Lost Cove in a themed immersive experience that uses the latest motion technology, battling tides and currents in a challenging and unpredictable river, choosing whether to operate cooperatively or competitively as they collect treasure and brave rapids on the way to their destination.

The cutting edge experiential design enables an individual experience for each user, depending on their choice of ride path. 

The interplay between special effects, surround sound, organic motion and stereoscopic visuals, combined with the sheer accuracy of the interactive gaming system brings story and content to life in an unprecedented way, putting the player at the heart of the attraction.

A 180 degree wraparound display using Holovis InterAct™  engages peripheral vision for interactive gameplay, while propriety handheld devices deliver a user-friendly, accurate interactive experience, making seamless player interaction possible in 2 and 3D worlds in any of the systems, from flat screen through curved to the MotionDome™ 360°.

The scalable ride technology facilitates the synchronising of subtle, realistic motion within the game or media. Interactive devices give an intense shooting experience or full directional control.

Holovis CEO, Stuart Hetherington, comments:

"Our revolutionary approach to experiential design of attractions creates a platform where each user can have a unique experience, depending on the ride path they choose to take. This stimulates ride repeatability, increased visitor engagement and high footfall levels.

"This technology showcase demonstrates how our turn-key dark rides and immersive attractions deliver a next-generation of experience through a truly integrated process from design to delivery. We ensure that the creative vision drives the entire process with the complete solution delivered from ‘under one roof’. This results in a de-risked approach when creating these complex attractions, eliminating disjointed 3rd party suppliers.”
