Movie Park Germany, Excalibur: Secrets of the Dark Forest, 2018
Retheme of the old Mystery River rapid river ride.
After having worked with Movie Park in 2016 on the Walking Dead®: Break out Haunted maze, Leisure Expert Group has designed another new experience at the park in 2018. The 1998 built rapid river ride is now reimagined as ‘Excalibur: Secrets of the Dark Forest’ after being already renamed once to Mystery river and originally built as a Neverending Story themed ride.
“To retheme an existing attraction is something very challenging, especially when it is such a big ride with theming that has been around for almost 20 years. This meant we had to work with the original attraction lay-out and develop a complete new theme around it.
For Movie Park, a movie related theme or IP is off course a must have, so together with their team we have developed a story around the myth of King Arthur, which has already been used in multiple blockbuster movies in many iterations. As guest, you have to reclaim the stolen Excalibur sword from the mythical creatures in the dark forest to restore the powers of King Arthur.”
