How Real Can It Be?

In the 1960s during our companies birth nearly 90 percent of all homes were equipped with a television.  Although, 98 percent of homes did not have a color television.  Americans were learning to rely on the television for entertainment and news but they were satisfied to consume the content in a grainy black and white picture.  Now with the LED technology that is readily available to our homes you can truly immerse yourself into whatever you are watching.  Sports venues are increasingly facing challenges with getting fans into seats.  The experience from their living room is so close to the real thing.  In this way amusement parks are having to do more as well to invite guests into the lands they create. Simply following a color scheme or applying decals is not enough to draw guests in and to stay and spend money.

At Chance Rides we pride ourselves on the attention to detail necessary to make all the pieces come together.  We’ve created some spectacular carousels with figures that look as if they’ve jumped right out of the screen onto our platform.

At Legoland California you can ride a Lego horse in Mia’s Riding Adventure.

One of my favorite carousels that we’ve created at Chance Rides is for Universal Studios Singapore.  It is the King Julien’s Beach Party-Go-Round in the Madagascar Zone.  This carousel makes the animated characters come to life.

We can even transform our thrill rides into something that becomes part of the story.  At the Nickelodeon Universe in the Mall of America, you can take a ride on Shredder, our Revolution 20 with a themed element for the villain of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Using steel and fiberglass adornments and lightning elements our ride transforms into the villainous weapon that is also a thrilling ride.

Huntington train is constructed with details such as real wood, brass, and castings that perfectly resemble the original 1863 transcontinental engine.
