    When it opens on July 4, 2020, LEGOLAND® New York Resort will introduce the LEGO® Factory Adventure Ride featuring the world's first use of on-ride tracking technology. By identifying the attributes of guests and mapping their position in the virtual space, the ride transforms riders into LEGO® Minifigures right before their own eyes! The family theme park revealed the news at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) annual Expo in Orlando in tandem with the ride technology designer, Holovis.


    In the narrative-led experience, LEGOLAND New York guests will join Professor Brick on a thrilling and unpredictable adventure through the incredible LEGO Factory, meeting many whimsical characters along the way. Halfway through the ride experience, the ride vehicles, created by ETF, will spin guests until they end up face-to-face with a screen. First, guests will see their ride vehicle transformed into LEGO elements and then, a magical moment occurs as they see themselves appear as LEGO Minifigures! The on-screen recreation is customized based on guest's attributes to present a unique experience…with the potential of surprises as well. Motion tracking even allows the Minifigure to move as the guest does. Holovis' proprietary HoloTrac platform leverages advanced computer vision and tracking technologies underpinned by deep neural-network-based facial detection and recognition algorithms – all in less than 0.5 seconds!

    "At Holovis, we pride ourselves on the ability to own the entire technical experience, so the delivery of the LEGO Factory Adventure is the perfect project for our turnkey, in-house capability. Working alongside Merlin Entertainments, we have created the ultimate in on-ride guest personalization and the ETF trackless motion vehicle integrates perfectly with the non-linear ride experience" said Holovis Creative Director Peter Cliff. "The LEGO Minifigure transformation is the textbook use for our HoloTrac technology, and since it's completely invisible to the guest, the experience feels like real magic when the moment occurs."

    "The vehicle we created for the LEGO Factory Adventure is meant to make guests feel as if they are a part of the automatic robot machinery that you would see in a LEGO factory," said CEO of ETF Ride Systems Ruud Koppens. "We've never done this kind of ride before that is based on reality versus fantasy and we are very excited to work with Holovis and Merlin Entertainments to make this happen!"

    BREAKING:

    Grupo Vidanta announces purchase of attractions from Intamin and five-station gondola system from Doppelmayr

    Grupo Vidanta announces purchase of attractions from Intamin and five-station gondola system from Doppelmayr
    Grupo Vidanta has announced two purchases from Intamin Amusement Rides and one from Doppelmayr/Garaventa Group, in what the company expects will set a new world standard for resorts and entertainment park rides. The company is continuing their plans and construction for its eagerly anticipated Vidanta World, a collection of entertainment parks located on their world-famous Nuevo Vallarta beach resort, voted one of the World´s Top 100 Hotels by Travel and Leisure in 2019.

    By Winter 2020, Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta will be the only resort in the world connecting guests to both the beach and to entertainment parks by air. Grupo Vidanta, a leading Latin American resort and luxury vacation experience developer, has partnered with the engineers at Doppelmayr to create The Vidanta SkyDream—a state-of-the-art aerial gondola featuring D-Line technology, The Vidanta SkyDream will be the first of its kind in Latin America and will offer five stations on a four-plus-mile route through which passengers will be whisked throughout Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta in minutes with a VIP experience that reimagines resort transportation. Guests riding the gondola will be able choose between regular and glass-bottom cars, for those who wish to admire the view in its entirety from above.

    From Intamin, one of the world’s leading ride development company, Grupo Vidanta also purchased a 45 meter diameter coaster wheel, an iconic cutting edge Ferris wheel featuring a mixture of standing cabins and cabins that can move along a track to provide even more thrills for passengers. This particular configuration will feature a lighting design that will be integrated into a grand lake show.

    The second ride purchased from Intamin is a 40 meter parachute drop which will whisk families up and down by the water’s edge, who will be treated to views of the surrounding vistas that include the parks, the resort and the beach.

    As The Global Association for the Attractions Industry kicks off its annual IAAPA Expo in Orlando, Florida from November 18 to 22, Grupo Vidanta will be making and announcing a number of further ride purchases.

    “Our guests have come to expect only the best from our brands, and their anticipation is high for the new entertainment parks,” said Iván Chávez, Executive Vice President of Grupo Vidanta. “Success has come from our ability to anticipate the needs of our clientele and deliver a vision that others have never done before. The large investments we are making in the latest ride and transportation technology demonstrates our commitment to setting a new global standard for excellence and fun.”

    The good news is it seems that some form of construction is actually taking place!





    The bad news is that apparently new financial problems have arisen regarding this past summer's construction company switch (Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. and STX Construction Co.) and Gangwon Jungdo-developments Corp. (GJC), an investment arm of Gangwon Province. I'm not totally clear on what is happening but it seems that GJC is low on funds and is considering selling the land around Legoland such as where the theme park's parking lot will be located.

    A great photo straight from Walt Disney Imagineering showing a scale model of part of the upcoming Frozen themed-land (likely called "Arendelle: World of Frozen") plus an overhead layout in the background, elevation illustrations, and more:



    It wouldn't be a Hong Kong Disneyland construction update without some new photos of Castle of Magical Dreams:
