Are 5D rides like 'Vengeance' at the London Dungeons the way forward?The London Dungeons here in London has recently premiered it's new 5D ride. Is this the way forward or is 5D just too much for a single ride experience ?
From Rob PWe've had 3D and 4D but now we have the London Dungeon's 5D ride: "Vengeance".

It comprises three elements:
3D: A high definition 3D film
Do you think that this is the future of dark rides or can one ride simply have too many elements ? Personally I think the concept is a great one and any number of themes would suit the 5D experience. Not least of all any new Marvel rides.
Your thoughts on this ?

From Robert NilesThis sounds like the Alterface 5Di Interactive Theater that I rode at the IAAPA trade show last November.

From Albino PygmyThere's an attraction in Branson called Castle of Chaos that sounds exactly what it was. The concept and effects were great, but the storyline and 3D film were rather weak IMO.

From Andrew MooneySo thats what 5D is. My younger brother asked me if there will ever be 5D and I said no, 4D was enough. Oops I better apologise - I'm such a nice brother ;)

Seriously I think 5D (the extra dimension being interactivity) is quite cool. So I'm guessing it's basically Toy Story Mania with the scare factor stuff in it (ie water spray, air flow and movement)
From Rob PI understand that there are just 3 rides of this type in the world today but I suspect that there'll be a lot more in the coming years.

The Muppets, with a new movie hitting our screens, could do with a facelift so there's one opportunity for Disney to get on board.
