#supplying interactive technology


High capacity and cost-efficient
Small footprint
Multi-dimensional gameplay

Merlin Entertainment’s urban entertainment centers proof that smaller footprints don’t necessarily mean less fun! Alterface was selected as partner from the start with a clear brief: to deliver a very high capacity, cost-efficient ride to entertain young Lego enthusiasts.

The team developed a very compact ride, based on ETF mystic mover vehicles and featuring simple graphic environments with a lot of humor and action. Being accessible to everyone was the key concern, but repeat players are treated to numerous challenges to master the ride and excel. The smiling faces on the built-in on ride photo system testify this is a mission well accomplished.

Since its first opening in 2009, the ride has been installed in 27 LEGO® and Legoland Discovery Centers across the world.
