Xperience Mover

by ETF Ride Systems The latest dark ride solution from ETF Ride Systems offers a standard car configuration, where up to six passengers are seated in two rows of three. For safety and comfort a lap bar is available. The upper body of the ride vehicle can be shaped and themed to customers' specifications. The trackless vehicle version, which must

run over a smooth concrete floor with no inclines, is otherwise extremely flexible and performs manoeuvres like splits and mergers, dead-end and reverse movements, roundabouts, and crossings. Vehicles are powered by on-board batteries that can be charged overnight. The trackbound version, which picks up power from bus-bars that run parallel to the track, enables more dynamic speeds in both the main direction of travel and rotation. Each vehicle is supplied complete with its own ride control package, which

regulates speed, orientation of the passenger compartment, and safe operation of the vehicles on the track and in the station.

Incredible Magic Machine

by Illusion Projects Developed by Tim Clothier, the Incredible Magic Machine is one of many new illusion-based interactive attractions being offered by Illusion Projects. Clothier founded Illusion Projects to offer creative and practical theatrical illusions with a high attention to detail, deceptiveness, and artistic flair. The company has mastered the art of illusion delivering one- of-a-kind projects that are designed to engage and entertain by pushing innovation to new heights. “We have designed and built numerous large-scale illusions worldwide that

always required a skilled illusionist to perform the magic,” said Tim Clothier, the designer behind Illusion Projects. “We’ve taken all of our knowledge and trickery to bring these same types of illusion-based experiences to parks and attractions, retail environments, children’s museums and more for anyone to interact with and enjoy.”

The Magical Compass will guide guests' interactive journey making them part

of the different stories and once they have experienced all of the scenes, the Magic Compass Convertor will transform their compass into a customised souvenir.

Elliott ‘Hitch’ Hitchcock, creative director with Illusion Projects commented.

“Whether it is a live show concept, an interactive feature for any attraction or environment, or a dark ride experience, we look to create the unexpected.” Part of the Company’s new division established to provide parks and

attractions with effective and realistic practical illusions, The Incredible Magic Machine has been designed to capture the imagination and create memories for the young and young at heart. “It is those moments or experiences when we‘re entertained and especially

when there is a certain suspension of disbelief, where we temporarily ignore the reality of what we are viewing or experiencing, that can create memories of a lifetime,” added Richard Deaver, executive producer with Illusion Projects. “Make no mistake, the art of illusion works only when the suspension of disbelief has successfully captured the imagination of the audience, and The Incredible Magic Machine was designed to do just that.”
