Bad news for the ghouls but much more fun for the guests.

When the park approached Ride Entertainment about the upgrade, the company recommended Lagotronics Projects.

“Since our first meeting with Lagotronics Projects on the Ghost Hunt project, we knew that we were working with a ‘first class’ company and that the guns and targeting system on the ride would be a huge hit with our guests,” reports Jerry Brick, General Manager at Lake Compounce.

“The quality, craftsmanship and dedication from Lagotronics Projects was of the highest standard and we are sure our guests will notice right away.”

All targets and IR sensors are new and have been incorporated into the scenery. What’s more, visitors can check out their scores at the end of the ride on a large leaderboard. This displays the individual visitor scores, the high score of the day, week, month or the best of the season.

Ghosts Hunt has also benefited from a brand new show control system intended to reduce maintenance to an absolute minimum.

The system even allows operators to alter the ride’s scoring difficulty and target interactions based upon guest feedback. The software is able to trigger numerous events when a target is hit and can be changed very easily. This means Lake Compounce can connect with their guests on Social Media, respond to their comments, and interact with the fans.

“The technology allows us to utilise software that offers parks interactivity which wasn’t available ten years ago,” adds Mark Beumers, CEO of Lagotronics Projects.

“Our systems not only offer reliability for park owners, but the storytelling technology that we provide is different than other companies. With our ability to change scoring difficulty, output results to social media and integrate our technology into existing attractions, we feel that Lagotronics Projects is offering a guest experience unlike anyone else in the attractions industry.”
