Benno's Great Race

Back to our works

Tooling race cars

Normally Ferrari cars are designed for driving and racing. But not at the magnificent Abu Dhabi-based Ferrari World Park! Based on an original scenario from Thinkwell (Burbank, California), Benno’s Great Race is a totally different interactive dark ride. Young visitors are invited to help the little mouse Benno to first assemble his car and then remove all obstacles which prevent him from racing and a glorious victory.

In order to fulfill this mission, Alterface designed a device which is not simply “aim and shoot” but instead uses Salto TM drag and drop technology combined with an interactive device shaped as a wrench. With this great little tool, the players can go through the seven different workshops and watch their little hero Benno triumph!
