Google built a dark ride. No joke.
Seriously. That was awesome. Get this in Epcot now.
That was actually pretty neat. Would fit well in Epcot.
Also, as someone with a phone that has Google Assistant, that video set off my phone many times
This screams 1960's Worlds Expo, and I absolutely LOVE IT.
This look half like a classic Epcot omnimover and half like Cat in the Hat in terms of set design.
I do have to wonder who's involved on this project, not just Google; but those who brought it to life.
That was adorable and it would be perfect in one of the Innoventions pavilions...
THAT WAS TOTALLY WICKED!! :D :D :D :D
That is so AWESOME:D :D thanks for sharing :D
I couldn’t watch this video in its entirety because it kept triggering my Google Home
I wish I known about this earlier so I could somehow arrange a way to actually experience it. Stupid trade shows, can't believe something like this is in my backyard and I can't ride it.
Yeah, this has to have been built by one of the ride companies and someone with experience building dark rides. This is not just thrown together by an amateur staff at Google.
A person on reddit who was at the trade show says it was built (not designed necessarily) by this company who specialize in temp setups like carnivals: Wisdom Rides
I imagine that’s the ride itself, I wonder who did the show scenes/triggers/etc
Right, which is why I said not designed. I'm really really curious to know who did it. Also I love the fact that there's Plexiglas gates in the station. Even temp dark rides gotta follow the strict safety standards of 2019.
My thought would've went towards Thinkwell, considering they have had done things for short-term events before; but even Dave Cobb (Principal of Creative development) is surprised about it.
Just as creepy and dystopian as some of the old Epcot pavilions! Well done!
Reminds me a lot of Horizons or World of Motion.
Yeah, Thinkwell was my thought too, but if Dave knew nothing about it I guess not. Whoever it is probably has an NDA, but it will get out eventually.
Song is damn catchy, too.
Here's the actual ride experience without Google overlaying the music onto the video. Still good for a trade show, and actually better than most Six flags dark rides, but definitely still has a lot of room for improvement. That's to be expected though with it only a temporary installment.
