While the regular version of the Torch sports full RGB color mixing plus white, the Torch ESCAPE offers white, red and ultraviolett LED's. All other functionality is identical. In using the UV LED, you can design rooms with hidden messaged on the wall, that are only visible when viewed under UV lighting conditions, making this gadget a perfect addition to your escape game.

Come visit "DämonXtrem"

Come visit "DämonXtrem" at Fort Fun Abenteuerland in Bestwig, Germany, the most recent Halloween haunted house project we had the pleasure of working on.
intya was responsible for creating the core concept and script as well as directing a diverse cast of experienced (Scare-)Actors to make this haunted attraction a next generation experience. Themed by the park as a cabin in the woods, it perfectly fits its natural surroundings.

Designed around the innovative Gantom Torch system and infused with elements of immersive theatre, this is not your typical startle-scare attraction. You will experience, complete darkness, smells, tactile effects, loss of control, confined spaces and much more. And did we mention that you usually go through it alone (or with one additional person if you so wish)?

In short: "DämonXtrem" will mess with your head.

Our mantra during the design phase has been "Your own worst enemy are the images in your head, not the "inhabitants" of the house". We have always wanted to go into a more psychological and theatrical direction with halloween scares and this represents the first evolutionary step towards that.

Come and experience this unique attraction for yourself! There are still a few tickets available for October 30th 2015 (Halloween night is already sold out)

Gantom Torch - intya takes over european marketing for this truly amazing new interactive technology

intya has taken over the european marketing of the "Torch" and representation of the Live! product line of Californian LED lighting specialist Gantom Inc..

Our relationship with Gantom goes way back to the early days of the company. At a convention we both attended we approached them with the idea for this product, since they already had most of the underlying technology in place. In record time early prototypes were made to be tested out with a live audience during last year's Fort Fear Horrorland event at Fort Fun Abenteuerland in Germany. Long story short, it was a huge success and all the lessons learned went directly back into the creation of the finished product which premiered during the Halloween & Attractions Show in St. Louis this March. As you can see from the photo below, the lines to the showroom were long to experience this innovative product first hand.
IMG_4645torchlightened

The system primarily consists of the torches, which are full RGB color mixing LEDs, and infrared emitters to provide full DMX control to the lamps.
While originally developed with a haunted attraction in mind, the technology is also more than suitable for use in family adventure games, escape room attractions or anything else you can come up with. Even custom form factors for your individual project are possible.

We currently expect the product to be shipping to Europe some time around mid/end July.
Please contact us for further details and we will be glad to help you with your individual project.

Innovative show technology premiers at Fort Fear Horrorland

Last years incarnation of Fort Fun Abenteuerland's award winning halloween event saw the arrival of some firsts. Intya developed a more intense version of their horror maze "TRAUMatized" which was operated as an upcharge attraction for one hour only on event nights, billed as "TRAUMatized - Extreme", presenting a novelty for the park. Besides several other frightening changes, the main difference was the patrons went through the house alone, or with a maximum of one other person if they wanted to. As the house was converted to a pitch black attraction for this experience, all that guests had to light their way was one single flashlight. Or so they thought....

In cooperation with Gantom Inc. and BlinkFX the flashlight system was designed based on our ideas. Each torch can not only change brightness but color as well (free color mixing). Each light can operate from integrated presets or via live DMX signal from a show control system, transmitted via infrared. "The feedback we received from our guests was phenomenal. Nobody expected the flashlight to do the things it did and it really freaked them out", remembers Michael Badelt.

As Fort Fear was the world premier for the system, and thus mainly a proof of concept test, an off-the-shelf version is currently being developed and is expected to be available some time in April. In the future, other form factors will also be possible, broadening the possible use cases for the technology also for other more family friendly attractions.

Should you be interested in implementing this system in your attraction, please contact us for more detailed information.

FORT FUN Cowboy Golf College with brand new audio effects

For FORT FUN Abenteuerland’s new adventure mini golf course „Cowboy Golf College“ intya delivered several audio effect units, making the mini golf experience even more entertaining. Each unit plays a permanent background audio and features a maximum of eight effect sound that are triggered in random order each time a ball passes the obstacle or is removed from the pit. The sounds are triggered via IR beam sensors. All sounds were custom produced in-house and are exclusive to FORT FUN.

"Secret Stage of Horror" now welcoming visitors

On April 6th FORT FUN Abenteuerland in Bestwig, Germany opened their completely renovated ghost train „Secret Stage of Horror“. What once was a simple ghost train is now a full-fledged dark ride thanks to modern projection effects and entertaining moving portraits in the queue line. While still maintaining its slightly eerie and haunting theme, albeit a new story line, it is still an attraction for the whole family.

intya is proud to have produced all the custom made projections and films for the portrait as well as having conceptualized and programmed the newly installed show control system.
