The Hyper Ride is Triotech’s version of a motion-based dark ride. The attraction features a ride system by Italian manufacturer Gosetto with motion seats by Triotech. It is capable of high acceleration, fast rotations and intense seat-motion, making it a thrilling dark ride vehicle. The attraction was awarded the Brass Ring-award for “Best New Product: Major Ride/Attraction – Product cost of US$2 to US$5 million” on the 2021 IAAPA Expo in Orlando.

“Hyper Ride is a unique award-winning attraction that changes the game for Location Based Entertainment venues,” adds Ernest Yale, President and CEO of Triotech to the press-release. “This attraction delivers a destination park level experience but for a fraction of the investment and space requirements. We have several such projects in the planning stage.”
