2016 - Knotts Scary Farm Visions

Augmented Reality Haunted Attraction

DAS put AR Ghosts in Knott’s Berry Farm’s 2016 Haunt Museum, under zero lighting conditions, integrating with their animatronics servers so that AR ghosts knocked over real objects, opened doors, shot guns at guests (synced with air guns blasts).  This project required our team to customize iPad hardware to see in Infrared Spectrum (Night Vision), invisible to the naked eye. 

Reviews:

 

• "Visions was the best of the Skeleton Key rooms... Holding a digital tablet device, I wandered around a darkened room until I spotted a ghostly cowboy who fired his revolver at me just as I was hit by a hidden blast of air.”

• "Visions was actually really cool, a fully interactive ghost hunt through the Green Witch Museum. Scary, but more intriguing as I felt as though I was really part of a ghost investigation.”

• "(Visions) the most innovative of the Skeleton Key Rooms, combining a bit of virtual reality with real practical startle scares and effects.”

-WestCoaster

 

• "Visions is the gem of the quartet...with the spirits actually seeming to exist in the real space seen through the camera’s eye.”

• "The best of the bunch was probably “Visions” which placed you in haunted room with a special paranormal device.”

• "Visions was one of the coolest and most entertaining things of the night. It felt like I was in an episode of ghost hunters and it was my job to figure out what was happening in the room.”
