Interactive Dark Ride



We were tasked with the design for an Interactive Dark Ride integrating over 320 channels of audio in more than 700 speakers.

Audio is sourced from over forty game computers, each supplying eight channels of audio and distributed to the speakers along the ride path. TechMD, Inc. was involved in the process from the start by designing speaker layouts, producing audio system production drawings, and traveling to Japan for system testing, integration, tuning, programming and mixing.

In addition that process, our work included the design and programming the audio and video systems used in an Interactive Animatronic. This figure has 500 lines of dialog and responds to guest feedback so that no show is ever repeated.
