Triotech Sets Up Its First XD Dark Ride Interactive Theatre in the Granby Zoo
Triotech, a world leader in interactive entertainment, has just launched its first XD Dark Ride interactive theatre in the Granby Zoo. The “7D theatre” is already one of the most popular attractions at the Granby Zoo, which operates 11 rides.
“The XD Dark Ride interactive theatre was designed in Quebec for the whole family,” said Triotech’s Vice-President Marketing Christian Martin. “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 multisensory adventure enhanced with leading-edge technology and special effects.
“We are proud to continue working with Triotech,” said Samuel Grenier, Granby Zoo’s Director of Operations. “In 2012, we set up a 16-seat immersive XD theatre without 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.”
The Granby Zoo’s XD Dark Ride theatre is featuring Carnival, the latest film created by the Triotech studio. The players are immersed in a nightmare about a disturbed clown seeking revenge and who imprisons them in a dilapidated amusement park. Giant heads and terrifying automatons are but two of the strange creatures that the players will have to confront to escape this bad dream. This installation follows the successful launch of the 200th XD Dark Ride interactive theatre at the Méga Parc des Galeries de la Capitale, a Quebec City indoor amusement park.

With more than 350 attractions set up in about 60 countries on all continents, the company has made it possible for 110 million people to live the Triotech experience over the last decade.
