The ride’s storyline is inspired by the element of fire, one of the five realms of the park and in keeping with the park’s mythical island theme.
“It’s an impressive, incredible ride for a park our size,” Eric Bertch, Owner of Lost Island says. “It’s also specially themed around our parks and completely unique.
Located in the Mura (fire) realm, the ride is housed in the park’s statement Volcano. Guests are equipped with a powerful ‘Thermal Equalizer’ (interactive device) as they battle with the minions of Volkanu and head to the Temple of Fire to return the statue to its altar. The attraction features state-of-the-art, multi-level gameplay technology.
Touted as a classic dark ride with modern technology, Volkanu takes riders through several immersive themed environments, while challenging them to participate in the story, and save the island. Riders will experience over a five-minute show time full of interactive 3D imagery, dynamic scenery, animatronic figures and special effects.
“At Sally, we believe in creating immersive, engaging experiences for families. That’s what made our partnership with Lost Island Theme Park a perfect fit,” says John Wood, CEO/Chairman of Sally Dark Rides.
“There’s incredible thematic storytelling in this park. It’s truly going to transport families into a magical land. Volkanu will help bring the park’s unique story to life for guests to enjoy for years to come.”
