Not long after its release, the cutting-edge multi-sensory adventure ride with real-time 3D graphics and individual scoring system made its first appearance at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo in Orlando, Fla., the premier conference and trade show for the global attractions industry. There it was recognized with the industry’s coveted Brass Ring Award for best new product in the family entertainment center ride/attraction category.
“The brass ring award was great for visibility,” said Zabik. “And our customers are loving the system, too.”
According to one operator quoted on the company website, fans of the attraction at his location started their own Facebook page, bringing word-of-mouth customers in droves. Another was thrilled that over 165,000 people had paid to experience his 20 seat XD Dark Ride in the first full year of operation.
Zabik said Triotech looks forward to continuing their successful relationship with ViewSonic, whose products account for around 75% of their projector product mix.
“We’ve used around eight different ViewSonic projectors to date,” he said, rattling off a list of models ranging from the PJ358 to the current PJD6683ws. “That includes projectors used in our motion theater systems and coin operated arcade machines.”
