Inspired in the blockbuster film the Uncharted rollercoaster dark ride will open its doors on June 17th.
Europe’s leading family theme park resort, PortAventura World, has closed a licensing agreement with Sony Pictures to build the first dark ride roller coaster inspired by the box office hit film Uncharted, starring Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg
Based on the globe-trotting adventure of Nathan Drake this new dark ride roller coaster will offer visitors a thrilling and immersive experience in search of one of the world’s greatest treasures.
The new ride, located in the Far West area of PortAventura Park, will allow visitors to participate in the dangerous quest for the greatest treasures ever found.
David García, Managing Director of PortAventura World said:
We can’t wait for our visitors to finally experience this brand-new attraction. In addition to being the world’s first dark ride roller coaster, Uncharted perfectly complements PortAventura World’s offer.
We invite all adventurers to join the park to live this new totally immersive and stimulating experience, full of adrenaline and innovation. This new ride will allow us to discover dark and unexplored territories during a stimulating expedition that will not leave our visitors indifferent.
The ride will consist of cutting-edge technology daring visitors to enjoy nearly 700 metres of a vibrant ride that reaches over 12 metres high in a unique space.
This thrilling new ride promises to reveal dark and unexplored territories during an exhilarating expedition that will not fail to excite them. To this end, the new attraction will feature a pre-show full of surprises and a journey of unexpected events in a totally immersive experience in search of the great treasure.
Investing over 25 million euros the project has been made possible thanks to a licensing agreement with Sony Pictures. Alongside ride manufacturers Intamin Amusement Rides and Sally Dark Rides this project comes together ready for public display in only a matter of weeks.
Whatever the future holds in store for this exciting new dark ride I certainly hope it’s better than the movie which is single handedly one of the worst cast films of the last decade!
Not that it mattered as from a budget of $120 million the film went on to make a $407 million worldwide total with a sequel already in the works.
Portaventura released a live-action trailer for the ride here and without giving anything away of the ride experience what so ever it gives us an idea of what is to come.
