Oceaneering Showcases REVOLUTION™ Tru-Trackless™ Ride System at IAAPA Attractions Expo 2013 Featuring Alcorn McBride Products

Oceaneering Entertainment Systems (OES) is using Alcorn McBride’s RideTraXX synchronized multi-channel audio player with crossfade, VCore controller and ShowTouch iOS control interface to demo its groundbreaking REVOLUTION Tru-Trackless ride system at IAAPA’s Attractions Expo 2013. IAAPA, the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions, will be at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, November 18-22.

OES is known for its cutting-edge development of theme park technologies, including dark ride vehicles, show-action systems and an array of custom solutions. The company’s latest revolutionary innovation is a ride system like none other. REVOLUTION is a “Tru-Trackless” system in which ride vehicles are able to glide around a show space in any direction, stop and turn at will, and provide a full motion base experience for the audience. Vehicles can follow multiple ride paths, have multiple motion profiles, and dispatch from load and unload stations in first available order.

“We chose Alcorn McBride’s RideTraXX as the 5.1 audio playback unit for the REVOLUTION system,” says Matthew Kent, head of creative services at OES. “At IAAPA Attractions Expo 2013 we’re also using VCore to trigger some show control specifics. We want to be able to walk up to the vehicle at the show and turn it on or off and access specific elements of the demonstration profile. REVOLUTION is designed to be put into an attraction on a continuous cycle of show control. VCore allows us to create a single motion profile for trade show demonstrations purposes with a Touch iOS interface that Alcorn is providing as well.”

During the demo Kent says OES will deploy RideTraXX for “off-board audio so that it can be heard throughout the booth rather than from within the ride, since we won’t have people in the vehicle, however it will be operational and controllable via the touchscreen.”

OES turned to Alcorn McBride for the REVOLUTION demo as a tried-and-true solutions provider. “Alcorn was already the provider of the audio system we chose for this product for all of our customers,” says Kent. “RideTraXX is versatile and offers all the inputs and outputs that we require, and it’s very easy to maintain and use. The Compact Flash card interface makes it simple to change show audio media on the fly.”

The REVOLUTION vehicle system may be used not only for passenger ride systems but also for other entertainment applications, such as moveable scenic, animation or show-action platforms.
