Patentes para ¿Mario Kart, Donkey Kong y Volcano Bay?

Universal ha registrado 5 patentes en los 2 últimos meses, aunque 2 han llamado especialmente la atención a medios especializados, puesto que podrían estar relacionadas con las futuras áreas Nintendo en USH, USF y USJ.

Se denominan Drift Racers (Mario Kart) y Boom Coaster (Donkey Kong).



Citar:
Drift racers: A two-rider, car-based amusement racing attraction with the ability to simulate drifting sensations. Two passengers, who could be in time/points competition with another car, will have control over some aspect of their ride vehicle: The driver would have a steering wheel and an acceleration and brake pedal to control the turning/drifting of the vehicle and speed; the rear passenger would have a control interface with buttons that could control the vehicle or bounce the ride vehicle, provide a boost to the vehicle during the race or affect the performance of another ride vehicle on the track, said the patent. For any Nintendo fan, that description brings to mind the video game company's popular Mario Kart game series. In one version of the series, called Mario Kart: Double Dash, each car had two racers — including a driver and a rear passenger — who controlled the use of items during the race that could impact their car or others in the race.


Podrá simular sensaciones de drift. 2 pasajeros que podrán competir con otro coche y tener cierto control sobre el vehículo (volante, acelerador, freno y boones para afectar a otros coches). Algo parecido a Mario Kart: Double Dash, con un coche con 2 ocupantes en el que uno conducía y otro los efectos.

Boom coaster: This is a unique arm that would attach to a ride vehicle to help enhance rides that appear to be on a track system, but are actually controlled by a separate arm. For example, the arm could be C-shaped connected to a secondary hidden track underneath the track guests see. As a result, rides that have story element breaks in the track — say like an upcoming jump from one track to another — could cause suspense. "Because the passenger may believe that the simulated ride surface controls a path of the passenger vehicle, the passenger may fear or anticipate that the passenger vehicle may crash or otherwise incur damage as a result of the elevated gap," said the patent. This has many fans thinking it could also be related to Nintendo via the Donkey Kong Country video game series, which features areas with cars traveling through dangerous mines filled with jumps, dips and turns.


Brazo que uno al vehículo en forma de carretilla de mina a una vía oculta secundaria, permitiendo que el vehículo avance, salte y formen sensaciones de caída (algo "similar" a la vía adicional de 4D de S&S). Similar a Donkey Kong Country.

Aquí las otras 3 patentes:

Citar:
Simulator ride: A track ride system that aims to provide a more interactive experience for guests than what's received in typical flying theater attractions like Disney's Soarin'. This would have guests step into a flying simulator on a moving track system that appears like a suit with pieces covering parts of the rider's body, such as a helmet, chest piece or arm piece with the ability of being controlled by the guests and providing feedback — via vibrations to simulate explosions seen on screen — during the ride. The patent uses the example of passengers in an asteroid field or flying with fire-breathing dragons as ways the technology can simulate explosions from destroyed asteroids or heat from fire to enhance the experience. However, images in the patent of the suits have a close resemblance to the Iron Man suit from Marvel comics and films — especially a feature in the center of the chest pieces that resemble Iron Man's arc reactor, which powers the suit.

Functional mat racer: A mat for use in water rides that can be equipped with lights, a screen and audio to enhance the overall experience. Lights could be used to illuminate the riders' path or light up the water beneath them to help set the environment they are in. In addition, the light could be a black light that activates when a guest is in a darker part of the ride to illuminate hidden features on walls. Also, the mats could come with display and audio elements that could "show images of other riders in the ride experiencing a thrilling section further along in the ride while a speaker may play captured audio from those riders to build anticipation," said the patent. The patent also states the ride could play music or have a light theme (like holiday colors) the rider chooses before the ride and have their choices saved to a "park identification bracelet" — say like Volcano Bay's TapuTapu bracelets — and the ride will be able to read the guests' bracelets and configure the ride to their choices. The ride then can sync the musical choice so the lights and ride features follow the tempo of the music.

Citar:
Slide entry system: This shows a new entry system to a drop slide — possibly for Volcano Bay — where the guest is inside a glass enclosure that slowly fills with water before having a trap door open beneath them to drop them into the water slide ride. "Not only is this thrilling for the rider, but the image of the rider being enclosed in a fluid-filled space may also provide excitement to the observers, said the patent. It added that a narrative to the drop could be that guests are live specimens for study by villains or "newly converted vampires," and the fluid may be dyed red to resemble blood.

Harry Potter / The Mummy

ayer estuve en Universal Studios Hollywood y me gustaría confirmar que la atraccion de Harry Potter YA funciona en 2D

Yo que probé el 3D a principios de Septiembre y también en Noviembre, confirmo que la atracción en mi modo de parecer mejora el producto.

El principal fallo del 3d era el dragon que te encuentras, que era muy falso, en el 2d este efecto mejora, al igual que aprecias mejor los detalles de las estancias.

Como contras, al no llevar gafas tus ojos tienen más campo de vision, por tanto si mueves algo la cabeza es facil ver en algunos momentos a los brazos "trenes-brazos robot" que tienes delante, sobretodo en la zona de las arañas y dementores, pero claro eso es solo si no estas metido 100% en lo que tienes delante en cada momento. Aunque es verdad que en la zonafinal de las arañas el vehiculo hace un giro tan raro que yo vi incluso durante medio segundo una pared de la nave, pero bueno que estamos hilando primo. La atraccion mejora y a mi me gusto más. Me molesta más los dementores... que son mejorables... en Orlando son igual?


Por otro lado:

REVENGE OF THE MUMMY post-mejora.

Cambios notados: NADA

Colas monumentales, llegaron a salirse de la entrada de la atracción y todo, esta claro que la nueva película de la momia atraerá nuevos visitantes y la atracción se seguirá llenando, por tanto no creo que esos rumores de "demolicion" que hubo hace unos meses se hagan realidad. Aun estan obras, cuando las acaben supongo que las colas volverán a mas fluidas y tampoco se saldrán de la zona de cola normal, donde ahora hay improvisada la zona de taquillas. Se ha eliminado el servidio de "Single Rider" por el momento, supongo que hasta que se terminen las obras
