Ubisoft’s Rabbids are getting their own 4D theater attraction which is coming to an amusement park near you.
Nothing can stop Rabbids, not even Nintendo. The best they could do was team up with the onslaught of little white minion-bunnies as they continue on to world domination.
Although it should be noted that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is an extremely well-received game that features a Rabbid in drag as Princess Peach. If that’s not selling it for you, nothing will.
Rabbids have conquered video games and television (in a French-produced series you can see on Netflix), and now they’re coming for amusement park rides.
In collaboration with Triotech, Ubisoft’s Rabbids are now start of their very own amusement park ride using 4D technology. We’re not too clear on what the fourth D is, but it sure sounds cool, so we’re reporting it.
The ride is called Rabbids Team Battle, and as the name implies, it involves a theater full of people that are each then separated into two teams. Everyone sits in a D-Box motion seat just as you’d find in certain movie theaters in front of a 270-degree screen. You then use your blaster to play what amounts to the world’s largest team-based rail shooter.
Wind, light, and haptic feedback will all combine to improve immersion, according to Triotech’s press release.
As for the game itself, the trailer provides few details but it seems like each team is given a giant robot that eventually faces off against the other team’s robot in a climactic battle. A score counter at the bottom of the screen shows each team’s collective scores which determine whether or not their giant robot will emerge victoriously.
It sounds a little cooky, but Triotech are the same folks who made Lego Land's 4D Ninjago coaster, so they certainly know what they’re doing.
Believe it or not, this isn’t the first Rabbids amusement park ride. A similar Rabbids dark ride already exists at Futuroscope amusement park in France.
We haven’t been provided details on exactly where this Rabbids ride will pop up, but Triotech is actively marketing the new ride to amusement parks around the country. With Nintendo set to open their own park in the near future, maybe Ubisoft will continue their long-standing partnership and sneak a Rabbids ride in there.
