The Justice League Arrives at Movie World

A brand new interactive 3-D dark ride has just opened at Warner Bros. Move World on Australia's Gold Coast.  The ride is billed as the first attraction themed to the Justice League, a fact that is apparent in the ride's name: Justice League: Alien Invasion 3D.

The ride features Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern and Supergirl as they battle an invasion of mind-controlling alien spores (which look sort of like starfish).  The ride system was provided by Bertazzon, with Sally Corporation creating the sets and animatronics.

As each car of four guests make their way through the 22,000 square foot building they use their own blasters to take down those alien spores.  The ride features immersive sets and also utilizes eight separate 3-D screen and 16 fully animatronic characters.  Plenty of special effects, lighting, and a unique soundtrack round out the experience.

As with other interactive shooting dark rides, each person's score is recorded on a display in the car, allowing for fun competition - and also making the ride have a high return factor.

If you're like me and probably won't be heading to Australia any time soon, here's a point-of-view video of the new attraction.  If you don't want to see, don't watch!
