Triotech, a world leader in media-based interactive attractions, has announced the opening of its spectacular new interactive dark ride, Voyage to the Iron Reef, at Knott's Berry Farm in California, US.

This park is part of Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, which also owns Canada's Wonderland where Triotech installed the award-winning ride Wonder Mountain's Guardian in May 2014.

"Los Angeles is one of the epicentres of entertainment," said Ernest Yale, Triotech's president and CEO. "Therefore, it is quite an accomplishment for Triotech to launch a major attraction here.

"Voyage to the Iron Reef keeps pushing the bar for interactive dark rides – especially with regards to interactivity, immersion, and projection quality."

Voyage to the Iron Reef

In this new Steampunk-inspired interactive dark ride, Triotech designed and deployed the projection and interactive gaming systems as well as the content, which allow guests to experience a 3D adventure enhanced with 4D effects.

In Voyage to the Iron Reef, guests climb aboard four-person, submarine-inspired ride vehicles and embark on a media-based gaming adventure into the Iron Reef that is located below the park's Boardwalk zone.

Equipped with an interactive freeze ray device, guests combat the Kraken Queen and her scavenging minions as they attempt to save Knott's from destruction.

Along the way, the submarines navigate 600ft of track and 11 scenes featuring hundreds of creatures and other special effects.

"Voyage to the Iron Reef is an incredible and innovative attraction that Knott's Berry Farm's guests will want to ride over and over," said Raffi Kaprelyan, vice president and general manager of Knott's Berry Farm

"Our collaboration with Triotech resulted in a visually stunning and highly interactive ride that's unlike anything else in the park."
