Holovis Reveals Dynamic Technology Showcase for Next Generation Dark Rides at IAAPA 2014

Holovis will be unveiling the latest interactive game title in their DomeRider™ series – The Lost Cove.  

This immersive themed experience for multiple players takes players on a virtual ride along turbulent river using the latest motion technology.  Riders can work as a team or compete, collecting treasure along with way and learning the river’s secrets.

Holovis CEO, Stuart Hetherington explains, “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.”

Riders are completely surrounded in real-time interactive content through a 180° wrap around display, engaging all their peripheral vision.

Holovis’s InterAct™ proprietary hand held devices are used for individual game play.  The easy to use devices deliver a highly accurate, interactive experience with seamless player interaction in 2D and 3D across any immersive system, from flat screens to curved or the MotionDome™ 360° dome.

Holovis combine organic motion, stereoscopic immersive visuals, surround sound, special effects with an accurate gaming system to create an intense, immersive interactive experience.

“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, ” adds Hetherington. “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 multiple 3rd party suppliers.”
