Alterface Interactive Dark Rides

VOLKANU, Quest for the Golden Idol, Lost Island, US

#supplying interactive technology


Designed and produced by Sally Dark Rides, Volkanu: Quest for the Golden Idol packs a lot into four minutes! Seated in trackless ‘Inferno’ ride vehicles with added on-board motion, passengers experience interactive 3D media, dynamic scenery, animatronic figures and dazzling special effects. As they travel through the jungle landscape, riders will encounter lava scorpions, spiders and bats!

Guests are equipped with the powerful Thermal Blaster guns that are styled as if they are made from volcanic rock, with a crystal that glows a different colour for each player in every six-seater car. The crystals react when guests hit targets within the ride. In addition, the guns provide a special reaction when players strike secret targets. Both the shooting technology and the ride’s interactive system were supplied by Alterface.

The result is an immersive attraction for all ages, fully integrated into Lost Island’s mythical island storyline.
