Istanbul Horror Hotel


Walk-through and dark ride operate side-by-side at MOIpark


Korku Otel – or Istanbul Haunted Hotel – is a signature attraction of the new MOIpark at the Mall of Istanbul (see park profile, previous page). A unique combination of a walk-through haunted experience and dark ride, it’s packed with gruesome Heimotion animatronics and live actors


S


pread over two floors and 1,500 square metres, the spine-chilling attraction features a central character called James (as seen below left), a mysterious waiter who welcomes the hotel guests, making them feel a little uneasy with his scary stories. The action is played out across 23 scenes inside the old-fashioned but well furnished hotel.


There are many disturbing occurrences along the way including an earthquake in the lobby, photographs that do strange things, a deep hole in the floor, staff making strange noises, characters appearing from behind the doors, spiders and bats attack, and disgusting dishes served up by a strange butler. Responsible for the planning, delivery and installation of special effects including 3D and 2D projections, UV lighting/scenery, 22 animatronics and 17 animated props and an elevator effect, Heimotion Themed Attractions produced the experience on a turnkey basis for the Mall of Istanbul’s owners. The 10-vehicle ride system (two passengers per car) was provided by Bertazzon.


The Istanbul Horror Hotel is pitched at MOIpark guests aged 8 and above – but how many of them will be brave enough to check in? And will they all be lucky enough to check out?
