Katapult, Simworx and Lagotronics partner for new trackless dark ride concept

Simworx, Lagotronics and Katapult have collaborated to create a new dark ride
Called Torchlight, the ride will primarily target the horror theme park market
Torchlight utilises the Augmented Guidance Vehicle (AGV) as well as interactive effects
Guests can participate in the story using their own torch
Three themed attraction design and creation companies have collaborated to create a new dark ride described as "like no other".

Called Torchlight, the ride is the result of a partnership between 3D/4D media-based attractions specialist Simworx, dark ride company Lagotronics and themed attraction design company Katapult.

The ride has been developed to primarily target the horror theme park market.

The ride utilises the Augmented Guidance Vehicle (AGV) as well as interactive effects, the 8-seater vehicles take guests on a journey which allows them to participate in the story using their own torch.

The storyline centres on the imaginary Shadow Pines National Park, where riders will join a search and rescue mission that soon turns into a desperate fight for survival as they come face to face with a deadly presence lurking in the woods.

"We wanted to create a truly unique experience using our industry knowledge and expertise that pushes the boundaries of guest experiences," the companies behind the ride said.

"More than a visually-appealing concept, Torchlight has been built with operators in mind

"Attraction layouts, capacity calculations and scope of work have been developed for this unique and scalable opportunity.

"With a recommended total cycle time of 6:00 minutes and maximum theoretical hourly ride capacity of 1047 per hour, Torchlight dark ride is ready to implement at parks."
