World leader in sensory experience design, Holovis, are showcasing the world’s first real time interactive game solution in a 3D dome at IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando.
The company promises visitors “a highly compelling storyline with perfectly synched motion and incredibly accurate interaction for a next generation dark ride style experience”.
The 10-metre dome has been designed to allow 12 people to experience the attraction simultaneously via the Holovis MotionSeat platform. The 3DOF electric motion base seats deliver a highly controllable dynamic range of motion without the juddering often experienced on older systems. In-seat effects include face air and water, neck air, leg and back tickler and seat vibration.
One of the dome’s key benefits is that it can be swiftly deployed making it particularly suitable for events and product launches.
“Traditionally interactive experiences at theme parks haven’t taken place in dome structures due to the complexity of accurately mapping across the curved surface, ” explains Stuart Hetherington, CEO of Holovis. “We are now taking this to the next level by wrapping people in 360° visuals and presenting highly compelling interactive game play through our proprietary platform InterAct™.”
The game chosen to demonstrate the dome’s capabilities is Crimson Wing from the Holovis Dome Rider series. The action-packed game features a fast-paced chase where riders will meet and attempt to defeat the dangerous creatures that lurk there.
