ETF Ride Systems and Jora Vision presented a new mini dark ride for FEC’s at the recent Saudi Entertainment and Amusement Trade Show in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Pirate Mania has been developed as a product for indoor venues with a limited footprint who are looking to add an interactive family experience with a high repeatability factor.

It has been designed to offer a "high-class family dark ride" experience – which has traditionally been affordable only for theme parks.

The narrative of the ride, which only requires a 250sq m footprint, is based on pirates setting up a training course, in which guests learn to become pirates themselves. They board a pirate-themed vehicle, take a gun and have to find the pirate skulls scattered around the training course.

ETF Ride Systems, specialised in developing and manufacturing ride systems, will be the turnkey supplier of the ride and will provide the ride vehicles and interactive system.

Jora Vision is responsible for the design and build of theming.

“For Pirate Mania we are using the Mystic Mover system, which is the smart smaller member of the ETF trackless family," said Ruud Koppens, CEO of ETF Ride Systems.

"The vehicle has a double bench and a capacity of 4 guests. The track path is also extraordinary: we added fancy movements such as 90° turns and a 360° on-the-spot rotation, in the middle of a sunken pirate ship.

"An on-board sound system will be integrated. We are proud to work with Jora Vision to launch this new product into the market.”

Jan Maarten de Raad, CEO of Jora Vision added: “Many theme parks value dark rides as a type of attraction.

"If it is made well, it is an immersive family experience which involves music, lighting, show-sets and integrated media.

"We strongly believe, however, that there is another market for dark ride experiences: the smaller FEC’s usually placed in shopping malls or commercial areas.

"Because of the small footprint and budget-friendly concept, we hope to convince FEC’s that such dark rides are a great investment to diversify the entertainment offer. Of course with an excellent theming and story.”
