  1. Legacy Entertainment collaborated with Hershey's Chocolate World and On Track Themes on the 2006 re-imagining of the classic Factory Tour Ride at Hershey's Chocolate World in Hershey, Pennsylvania. This unique Omnimover dark ride was originally built in 1973, following the shuttering of tours through the actual chocolate factory. Over the years, it has had a number of major overhauls and upgrades, each one aiming to increase the entertainment factor. Legacy's dark ride design focused on the introduction of animatronic cow characters to frame and narrate the experience. Renowned character designer, Phil Mendez, best known in the theme park world for Monster Plantation (now Monster Mansion) provided the character design. Broadway designer Jerome Serlin collaborated on the 'Hershey Happiness' projection finale.

    Dubai Hills Mall is due to have a roller coaster as one of its leisure attractions.

    The Dubai Hills Indoor Coaster consists of an enclosed (approx.) 50m tall, 45m diameter tower facility connected to the Dubai Hills Mall. The facility includes a multi-vehicle coaster consisting of a 48m vertical launch and approximately 700m of track. The roller coaster cylindrical building is integrated with a two-story attraction fit out within the mall, comprising of additional amusement facilities, food and beverage, retail, ticketing and queueing.

    Suzhou Paradise Forest World is now open in China - it's what I would describe to be a mid-size park on the same level as the Sunac Lands (once it's fully complete). Rides include a couple of Chinese-manufactured coasters (Mack launch coaster coming in phase 2), river rapids, flat rides, drop ride, train, and most significantly a robotic arm dark ride manufactured by Jingang Technology. Concept art for the ride (which should be open now) can be seen at the bottom of this post.

  4. During Mark Shapiro's reign at Six Flags, Legacy Entertainment was his go-to design company, tackling projects including Six Flags Dubailand, the Glow in the Park parades, and Monster Mansion dark ride. Like Six Flags Dubailand, another project which was not realized was a park for the Middle Eastern nation of Qatar. Taking into account the nation's small population as well as its superlative GDP, Legacy designed a 'boutique theme park' tailored to the local clientele. More akin to Tivoli Gardens than a traditional Six Flags park, Six Flags Qatar would have focused less-exclusively on roller coasters and thrill rides, and more on serene gardens programmed with shopping and dining experiences.
























  5. One of the most beloved and enduring non-Disney dark rides in the world is Monster Mansion at Six Flags Over Georgia in Atlanta. Originally built as 'Tales of the Okefenokee' and debuting as part of the park's original 1967 opening day program, it was then transformed into Monster Plantation in 1981.

    In 2008, Legacy Entertainment had formed a relationship with Six Flags, then under the leadership of Mark Shapiro, developing such projects as the Glow in the Park Parade as well as Six Flags Dubailand. Upon learning that a plan was afoot to replace Monster Plantation with a Justice League boat ride, Legacy intervened, explaining that Monster Plantation had grown into much more than a simple dark ride- it was now a multi-generational Atlanta institution. Mark Shapiro immediately understood and agreed with this logic, and approved a complete overhaul and upgrade of the existing attraction.

    For this unique dark ride design exercise, Legacy Entertainment brought back original character designer Phil Mendez to create new animatronic characters to join the 100+ already in the attraction. In addition to concept art from the attraction operating today, also seen here are images from an alternate storyline explored during Blue Sky Concept Design, in which the Mansion was up for sale and its residents being evicted by a diabolical deed holder.

    The reimagined Monster Mansion debuted in May 2009. Keen-eyed riders will notice that Legacy Entertainment added a small tribute to the original 'Tales of the Okefenokee' dark ride in the attraction's first scene.

    Update On Hay Al Sharq Waterpark

    The Sultanate of Oman is currently engaged in promoting economically sustainable projects, with the dual objective of “satisfying the public’s needs and enriching life” in the country, on the one hand, and on the other, increasing the contribution to its economy of non-oil and gas related sectors. One of these projects involves the realisation of a 1.5 km2 leisure and tourism area near Muscat, its capital. An emblematic project of this initiative, in accordance with international standards, is the development of a water park in the area. After an international competition, Amusement Logic was awarded the development of the Executive Project and the supply of electromechanical equipment for said park.
