Overview

Virtual reality at its world class best. Darkride won the prestigious Brass Ring Award at the International Association of Amusement parks and Attractions expo at Orlando Florida.Take a walk down Earl St and you'll find an adrenaline center that is out of this world. Forget every preconception you've ever attached to the word "Adrenaline" and enter a zone where your natural receptors will compete to process experiences you will relive for days to come.Explaining the towns most comprehensive test of the human nervous system is easy... There is a fun ride to suit all ages. The first simulator to blend a competitive interactive and reactive game into a 3D ride. Experience the thrill of up to 400 mind blowing movements per second and up to 2Gs acceleration. Accurate motion is driven digitally by exclusive custom made ride content and this all means you will experience an unbelievably fantastic ride without the side effect of motion sickness often experienced on simulators. Never has the phrase "Adrenaline Junkie " been better applied,which makes this place easy to find as you get closer because in Darkride EVERYONE can hear you scream.
