Triotech Announces Ghostbusters, Walking Dead Rides

Dressed as a member of the Ghostbusters, Triotech President/CEO Ernest Yale announced Tuesday the Montreal company is developing a 5-D Ghostbusters interactive ride. Scheduled to open at Germany’s Heide Park Resort in summer 2017, the Ghostbusters ride will pit teams of 3-D glasses-wearing riders equipped with laser proton pistols and a ghost trap against flying slimy ghosts. “When I grew up I always loved Ghostbusters,” said Yale. “So to be part of that franchise, for me, is really amazing. I can’t even believe it.”

Triotech is also putting together a “Fear The Walking Dead” interactive walk-through attraction in partnership with AMC. It is due to open on Las Vegas’ Fremont Street in summer 2017. “You’re going to feel like you live inside the TV show,” said Yale.

A third flying 3-D movie ride, “The Flyer,” was announced, as well; the first one will open in San Francisco, also in summer 2017.
