Maurer Rides presents Lost in the Maze coaster to challenge rider’s reaction skills

We set new standards in the amusement industry and realise the most incredible projects

Maurer Rides has unveiled Lost in the Maze – a new interactive indoor roller coaster experience using patented Spike technology.

During the immersive ride, passengers’ reactions skills are tested as they can accelerate and brake the cart through four different zones – Mystery, Action, Haze and Activity – each of which is complete with a distinct coloured laser show and certain action requirements.

The Maze experience begins and ends in the explosive red Action Zone, where riders must use the brake quickly to control the coaster and avoid passing through red lasers which slow the cart down.

In contrast, the Activity Zone requires guests to accelerate as fast as possible in order to hit a blue laser before it switches off. If successful, they’re rewarded with increased speed.

The Maze also features a white Mystery Zone which the coaster will pass through as it transitions from other activity zones.

The remaining zone – called Haze – is filled with fog and challenges riders to activate the boost button wherever yellow lasers appear so that they receive even more acceleration.

Maurer’s Spike technology ensures 100 per cent traction at every point on the track, as the drive sits directly on the coaster cart and instantly takes on every action of the driver. Its reaction speed directly influences the driving experience, in combination with the light, fog and laser elements.

The number of lasers and the interactive elements can be expanded and changed at will by operators.

Torsten Schmidt, Maurer’s director of business development, said: “We set new standards in the amusement industry because our passion for the new concepts allows us to realise the most incredible projects.”
