What is a dark ride?

When you climb aboard a dark ride, you’re jumping straight into the middle of a story, experiencing scene after scene with all of the senses. Typically indoors, riders board a ride car system that takes them on an incredible journey as the scenery changes and additional theatrical elements add to the excitement, including 3D screens, animatronics and interactive gaming.

Dark ride categories:

  • Classic Storytelling – sit back, relax and get lost in an imaginative story complimented with beautiful set pieces and animatronics.
  • Interactive Gaming – practical targets and vivid scenery boost repeat ridership and friendly competition.
  • Mixed-Media – combining storytelling, interactive media, and immersive environments to create a larger-than-life experience.

What are the advantages of a dark ride? 

Riders are kept on the edge of their seats, along for the adventure as a captivating set unfolds unexpectedly at every turn. Dark rides create lifelong memories, appealing to all ages with comfortable durations and endless theming possibilities and storylines.The concept appeals to the imagination, so you can create your own timeless tale for others to experience in a one-of-a-kind way.
