Hidden Reality is the latest generation in dark-ride technology. The areal and sensual experience of decoration and effects will be combined with individual challanges. What used to be standing in one place as animatronic can now move around freely and interact with the riders. There are endless possibilties: a glimpse into space, or what about comic characters becoming alive and interact with the riders? Imagine animals who come really close to you ... anythin is now possible!
I want one at Alton Towers!
