After a closure of nearly 6 months, Attractiepark Slagharen opened its new dark ride Red Bandits Adventure today. The new attraction is a retheme of the former Wild West Adventure-dark ride. The park opened the attraction today with a press-event, followed by the official opening for visitors.
Wild West Adventure officially closed on November 6 to make way for the new experience. “This ride, 22 years ago, was fantastic. Many people loved it. I think it is time to bring it to new times and make something that fits the current” said Slagharen’s CEO Dave Storm to the DRdb about the closure of Wild West Adventure.
The new experience was designed by Leisure Expert Group and revolves around the Red Bandits, a group of outlaws that have been part of Attractiepark Slagharen’s street entertainment for many years now. The new storyline revolves around several challenges that new recruits must perform to join the ranks of the Red Bandits. Most of the landscaping, mainly rockwork, remained during the retheme, but the scenes themselves were completely stripped to fit the new storyline.
Red Bandits Adventure was presented to the press in the morning, followed by the public opening at noon. A large crowd of Slagharen fans had gathered to see the new attraction. Team Dark Ride Database was present during the opening. A full report and video of the new attraction will follow soon.
