Triotech’s XD dark ride at Pinballz passes milestone
Pinballz arcade in Austin, Texas, has welcomed more than 45,000 players in its Triotech XD Dark Ride interactive theatre. Installed in May 2017 at Pinballz Lake Creek’s location, the eight-seat XD Dark Ride has quickly become a popular attraction. A group play and individual scoring system creates a unique competitive dynamic, encouraging repeat visits. In recognition of the attraction’s success, Pinballz added a new film to its library: the latest Triotech in-house movie, “Carnival.”
“Carnival has enjoyed great success since we launched it last November,” commented Eric Beauregard, vice-president – global sales. “In only five months, already more than 77,000 players worldwide have experienced this thrilling adventure. It’s a great addition to Pinballz XD Dark Ride library, especially with the Halloween season coming. We’re committed to offering a new movie every year. We’re excited to reveal the new one at IAAPA Expo in Orlando in November!”
“We love working with Triotech, they are always responsive, their equipment is very reliable, and the XD Dark Ride has been a great investment” added Darren Spohn, CEO of Pinballz. “It is very popular amongst our visitors, people often want to replay to have a higher score than their friends, so we’re thrilled to be able to add CARNIVAL to our movie selection.”
