Legoland Unveils New Dark Ride with Hand Motion Detection – Ninjago The Ride

If you’ve ever ridden an interactive dark ride, you’ll know that you’re limited by what the “gun” is designed to do. Basically you pull the trigger or the pull string and repeat that dozens of times. What if you weren’t restricted by a gun? What if the ride vehicle could pick up on your hand motions and react accordingly? Enter Ninjago The Ride.

Triotech, who has created dozens of interactive rides and video games, has created a first-of-its-kind technology where sensors just beyond the lap bar can detect a rider’s hand gestures. Ninjago The Ride will be the first to use Maestro Technology, which President and CEO of Triotech Ernest Yale explained to members of the press at the 2015 IAAPA convention. “Triotech’s Maestro hand gesture technology features the ultimate ergonomics,” explained Yale. “Each guest uses his or her own hands…or hand.  They can use left or right, one, or two hands. This is why we call it Maestro.”

Yale went on to say, “Just like an orchestra conductor, guests will create an amazing experience by using their hands. It is very intuitive and adaptive to the guest’s playing style.”

 

Through 3D imagery, high-tech sensors and the use of hand movements in a striking motion, up to four riders per car can act like ninja warriors blasting animated fireballs, lightning, shockwaves and ice as they travel through dojos to master their skills before heading into battle.  Riders collect points for their training and battle efforts throughout the ride and scores are displayed when their quest is completed. 4D effects such as heat, smoke and wind are also incorporated throughout the adventure, giving guests the ultimate interactive experience.

Ninjago

Based on the popular property Lego Ninjago, which was brought to life by The Lego Group in 2011 through a line of construction toys and a TV series on Cartoon Network, guests will enjoy interactive elements on this new ride featuring key characters.

Lego Ninjago tells the story of four young ninja heroes – Kai, Jay, Cole and Zane – who train under the watchful eye of Master Wu to master an ancient martial art, Spinjitzu. Lego Ninjago is one of the most successful Lego properties. Ninjago The Ride will be opening in 2016 at Legoland California, Legoland Malaysia and Legoland Billund.
