A new interactive dark ride named Harrington Flint’s Island Adventure’s opened at Fantasy Island this summer. It is a great addition to the many fantastic rides and attractions already on offer at the Theme Park located on the east coast of England.
Who is Harrington Flint?
The ride’s storyline revolves around famed explorer and treasure hunter Harrington Flint, who once again comes face-to-face with his nemesis, Professor Crow. His old enemy is on a mission to raise an ancient Mayan god of war and take over the world. Only the riders can help Harrington Flint to defeat Professor Crow by fighting off his army of the dead, by shooting down Mayan zombies.
An Immersive Adventure Ride
In this fantastic adventure ride, visitors embark on trackless vehicles which transport them into an immersive new world, travelling through portals, using their laser guns to shoot down Mayan zombies and putting themselves to the test as they fire away at Professor Crow.
Competitive Family Fun
The more characters you blast, the more points you get. It is a very competitive ride with family and friends competing with each other to get the highest score. The ride features a good mixture of digital media and physical content with some clever effects added in.
One of our favourite elements was a sliding door at the beginning of the ride which opens unexpectedly to reveal what’s ahead. Thanks to the use of trackless vehicles the ride developers have also taken the opportunity to use projection technology on the ride floor.
A member of our party commented, “It was great fun, very competitive, we all wanted to beat each other and we were all comparing our scores.”
The Giant Pyramid
Harrington Flint’s Island Adventure’s ride is located inside a giant pyramid at Fantasy Island which also contains a number of other great rides and attractions all themed to fit in with their surroundings.
