MERLIN'S MAGIC CASTLE - WALIBI WORLD, THE NETHERLANDS
The enchanted version of the Vekoma Madhouse ride system.
In the storeroom of the castle, Merlin the wizard is trying to convince his cynical friend the little owl, that he is able to make the world turning. Merlin is showing chandeliers and stairs turning, but his small friend is not impressed and only laughing on him. Merlin is eager to show that he is a strong wizard and invites to come to his laboratory. There he will be impressive.....
This enchanted madhouse is the example of complete integration of the ride experience and the show experience. The story explains the movements of the ride and the ride involves the guests in the story.
