Alterface, which designs and develops interactive multimedia systems for museums, science centres, and amusement parks, said dark rides can now benefit from the techniques the company had previously developed for its CinemAction interactive cinemas.

"With this application for dark rides, it is as if the seats become mobile and the giant screen covers all the scenery," the company said. "The basic principle is identical: the game unfolds in interaction with the projected images, the targets that are hit score points, a ranking is established, and special effects and the sound track immerse an entire group of players in a world that stimulates their senses."
