Ride & Show Engineering in California has developed a new ride vehicle for dark rides, shown below, "The present invention relates generally to the field of amusement rides wherein patrons seated in cars are moved along a track, the cars are suspended from the track, and the car is pointed in various directions to view specific portions of the attraction. Optionally, a motion base positioned between the car and the track also allows for the simulation of movement, for example, the simulation of flight in various directions." http://www.google.com/patents/US20130017893 This is an improvement over existing ride vehicles that, as Ride & Show points out, "... have no ability to impart rotational movements in the yaw, pitch or roll directions to simulate movement or direct a patron's viewpoint toward desired scenery." I would think that this would be a great upgrade to an existing dark ride like Peter Pan. The improved mechanics, smoother motions, increased degrees of freedom, and simulated "flight" would all be major pluses. But I see that they are promoting this to Disney and Universal. Still, I think this would be a better fit for Disney.
