Alterface to unveil interactive scavenger hunt experience, Wander, ride at IAAPA Attractions Expo

Leading creator of turnkey interactive attractions, Alterface is set to launch its new Wander personalised, scavenger hunt experience at the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando.

A non-linear, on-location solution, Wander turns almost any environment into a scaleable, mission-based attraction.

First stop is the despatch centre which recognises and assigns missions. Visitors then make their way to interactive action centres around the park where they perform their missions.

A real differentiator for parks

“Wander will turn visitors into scavenger hunters, crossing the park in search of clues, challenges, rewards or surprises,” explains Alterface CEO and Founder, Ben Cornet.

“We have put our interactivity expertise together with today’s market needs to come up with a range of (dark) ride solutions which are less predictable than today’s linear experiences. This requires more complex technology and careful planning but guarantees so much more fun for the visitors. Our approach ensures a real differentiator for parks and will move them to the next level.”

Park visitors are given a mission individually or as a group. They are then sent to various places around the park to fulfil them. These will depend on the chosen story, the available capacity of each station and the previous experience of the players. This keeps the experience fresh and engaging.

To implement such a complex attraction, Alterface relies on its powerful Salto™ interactive engine. This proven system is at the heart of countless complex rides including Maus au Chocolat in Phantasialand and Justice League at Six Flags.

A truly personalised experience

Salto has been updated with the latest functions and is also used in Alterface’s recently unveiled, cutting-edge Erratic dark ride concept.

According to Alterface, the flexibility of the system means it can adapt to any venue regardless of its size. It has a virtually unlimited amount of gameplay possibilities.

Furthermore, Wander will match the identity of the user with the unique identifier of the user’s ‘magic wand’. This will create a truly personalised experience.

The attraction can operate as a stand-alone or can be enhanced through interfaces with programmes such as season pass, loyalty card and local payment systems, amongst others.

See Wander in action at booths #259 and #262. Meet the Alterface team at the IAAPA Attractions Expo, Orlando from November 14-17, 2017.
