Interactive entertainment specialists Triotech has launched its first XD dark ride interactive theatre in the Granby Zoo, one of Quebec’s major tourist destinations.

The 7D theatre is proving to be a hit at the Granby Zoo, which features 11 rides. The XD dark ride theatre is currently showing Carnival, Triotech Studio’s latest film.

Players are imprisoned by a revenge-seeking clown, who keeps them prisoners in a run-down theme park. Players are forced to confront scary automatons, giant heads and other terrifying creatures as they try to escape the nightmare.

Christian Martin, Triotech’s vice-president of marketing, spoke about the new attraction.

The XD Dark Ride interactive theatre was designed in Quebec for the whole family. It’s one of our signature attractions, contributing for nearly eight years to our international reach.

Winner of the prestigious IAAPA Brass Ring award in the “Best-New-Product” category, this attraction makes it possible for eight people to play and experience simultaneously an intense multi-sensory adventure coupled with leading-edge technology and special effects,” said Martin.

Samuel Grenier, Granby Zoo’s director of operations, is equally as pleased about the launch of the new attraction.

“We are proud to continue working with Triotech. In 2012, we set up a 16-seat immersive theatre without XD interactivity that was very popular with visitors.

“With the 7D theatre, we wanted to provide our customers an unparalleled immersive experience that is already a resounding success all around the world,” Grenier commented.
