  • Disney Looks Into "Trackless" Ride System

    Team from Disney examines Enchanted Forest's newest ride

    The Walt Disney Co. sent a team to the Enchanted Forest (Oregon) Wednesday to check out The Challenge of Mondor, a trackless indoor target shooting ride.
    Disney "Imagineers" came to the Turner theme park to research the possibilities of using the same ride system in Disneyland, Enchanted Forest officials said.
    Barcode technology guides The Challenge of Mondor's cars. That allows the cars to have a greater range of movement than vehicles hooked to a track.
    The trackless ride system was built by ETF of the Netherlands. It is the only trackless ride system built by ETF in the United States, Enchanted Forest officials said.
    The ride "sends riders on a quest to fight dragons and monsters and free the happy little drumlins," according to the theme park. Riders use infrared guns to vanquish their opponents, and the cars have on-board score-keeping units. Top scorers are given medals and have their names engraved on a plaque at Enchanted Forest.
    The park is at 8462 Enchanted Way SE in Turner.

    Walt Disney Imagineering have used trackless technology before, notably in Tokyo Disneyland's Pooh's Hunny Hunt and Tokyo DisneySea's Aquatopia.

      But not using the bar-code technology. DOSH has a problem with the GPS guided system and how it works with power failures, Emergency Stops and other redundant issues.

      Maybe a barcode type system might be acceptable to DOSH, one can at least hope...

        MGM's ToT uses a guide system as well.. as well as the parade floats use one (presumably just for positioning though, not actual guidance)
