US patent granted to Lagotronics Projects’ GameChanger
First introduced in 2016, Lagotronics Projects’ ride concept ‘the GameChanger’, a rotating interactive dark ride, has been granted a US patent.
After a successful patent application in the Netherlands, the patent for the GameChanger amusement ride has also been granted in the US. Patents in other regions like Europe and China are pending.
CEO Mark Beumers commented: “After having been awarded with several patents for our unique Interactive technology and devices, the GameChanger is the first complete attraction Lagotronics Projects has received a patent for. Our company is and has always been focussed on developing and providing the best technology and experiences to our customers. Receiving this patent, especially in the US, is such a great recognition for all our people and the effort they put into the design of this attraction.”
The GameChanger is a turnkey ride concept including ride system, interactive technology, audio, video, lighting, special effects and theming. It can be installed on a very small footprint starting from only 36 square metres, but can still accomodate a high capacity.
The first GameChanger worldwide opened in Shimao’s Max Wonder Park, China. Since then every year a new GameChanger has been installed, with the most recent installation of a Smurfs themed GameChanger in Shimao’s Dream City theme park in Shanghai.
