Lagotronics Projects’ Dark Ride Upgrade Marks First US Project

Lagotronics Projects' Ghost Hunt Dark Ride Upgrade Marks First US Project

Dutch technology innovator, Lagotronics Projects, has announced its first project in the United States.  The company will be breathing new life into the Ghost Hunt dark ride at Lake Compounce in Bristol, Connecticut.

Updates to the popular attraction will include new shooters, targets and gaming system.

“We are thrilled to grow our presence in the North American market and excited to work with the team at Lake Compounce, ” confirmed Mark Beumers, CEO of Lagotronics Projects. “They have a fantastic park and we are proud to be a part of the many improvement projects at the property next year.”

Lagotronics Projects will be installing a new interactive system that uses LEDs. This removes the need for moving parts inside the guns and makes them safer and significantly more reliable.

Increased accuracy and audio feedback when fired adds to the fun for those brave enough to collect ghouls for points.

The improvements are intended to increase uptime and guest enjoyment of the ride experience.

2016 has been a bumper year for the Dutch company. It brought a number of new innovations to market including the GameChanger interactive attraction at Shimao’s Skyscrapers City and its Hand Symbol Control and Swipe Control which was showcased at the industry’s major expos.

“We are excited about what the future will bring. Lagotronics Projects has been on the cutting edge of the attractions industry for some time and we are looking forward to sharing more of our exciting innovations with the world, ” added Beumers.
