At  the launch of our new Dark Ride System – The QuadTrack at EAS in Barcelona, we had lots of press visits (which is always exciting) and the coverage has now started to roll in. Here’s a great piece in IAAPA’s FunWorld magazine in their ‘EAS 2016 From the Floor’ section of the November 2016 issue. You can read that here

Or to make it even easier, we’ve added their words below.

“Santa Park Arctic World in Finland called on Garmendale to update the vehicles of its popular “Magic Sleigh Ride” dark ride, without impacting the existing experience. The result is Garmendale’s QuadTrack, a two-bench dark ride vehicle, themed to look like a real wooden sled. The ride will consist of six cars on 150 meters of track that travel through an enchanted Christmas wonderland. The vehicle is all electric and features lapbars for all riders. For easy maintenance, the vehicle’s control panel is easily accessible on the rear of the car, rather than below the chassis.

The driving factor for redesigning the vehicles was to update a nearly 20-year-old ride and provide an authentic experience. The new vehicles feature a custom-made body that looks and feels like the real wood of a sleigh.

The ride was entirely manufactured in the United Kingdom and completed in six months, with installation due four weeks after EAS.”
