Ghostbusters: Battle For New York

Back to our works

There is something strange in the neighbourhood

Armed with their proton pistols and driving their own Ecto-1 vehicle, players have to protect New York city from an ectoplasmic invasion. From Dana Barrett's apartment to the hotel corridors, players will enjoy meeting the iconic characters from the movies such as Slimer, Puft Marshmallow Man and of course, Gozer !

Immersive Experience Through Advanced Technology

Alterface's has build almost 40 interactive dark rides since its existence and every new one seek for improvement. Ghostbusters: Battle for New York stands out from the others interactive dark rides by its convincing interactive projection mapping, its 4K screen and its fabulous integration of the media content in the scenery. As ghosts wreak havoc in town, various daily objects come alive like water tower's walls blending under ghostly pressure or ceiling furniture levitating around, glimpsed by the players from an appartment breach.

One of the emblematic elements of the Ghostbusters is their uniform and guns, also known as the Proton Rifles. Alterface had the great honor to design and add to the family the Proton Pistol, a one handed interactive device for chasing ectoplasmic beings. The close resemblance with the blasters used in the films could be reach thanks to Alterface's patented shooting technology.
« Our technology is optimized for requiring only a small volume of electronics. This allows us to shape any shooting device on demand, providing the players a feeling of authenticity resulting in a greater interactive dark ride experience ! » explains Stéphane Battaille, COO at Alterface.
