Benno's, Interactive Dark Ride, Dubai

Mixed Media Dark-Ride, 2016

Innovative gameplay
Drag and drop technology
Interactive wrench device

Ferrari cars are designed for driving and racing. Except at the magnificent Abu Dhabi-based Ferrari World Park! Benno’s Great Race is a totally different and unique 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 obtaining a glorious victory.

Alterface designed a device which is not simply “aim and shoot” but instead uses Salto™ 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.
