New Ride Combines 3-D with Motion Simulator

April 06, 1999

Cinema Ride Inc. of Studio City said it has been granted a U.S. patent for a three-dimensional motion simulator ride.

The ride gives viewers--who are seated in a moving chair in front of a movie screen--the sensation of doing things such as skiing or diving underwater. According to Cinema Ride, the ride is the first to couple 3-D with a motion simulator.

Cinema Ride develops, owns and operates motion simulation theater attractions at tourist sites in the United States and Canada. The company's 15-seat motion simulation capsules feature military-quality flight simulator hardware that is programmed to move in concert with action viewed on a motion picture screen.
