Scooby-Doo and the Museum of Mysteries
- Client: Warner Bros.
- Location: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
In this innovative dark ride experience, trackless ride technology lets guests share the mystery with other ghost hunters and experience the silly thrills of a classic Scooby-Doo cartoon in a whole new way. Traditional audio animatronics and a variety of both classic and innovative dark ride special effects bring the ghoulies to life, creating a spine-tingling and immersive ride-through “episode” of the beloved cartoon. The trackless ride system is used in unique ways here, with individual vehicles branching into their own scenes multiple times. This culminates in a chaotic never-before-done scene, with multiple ride vehicles crisscrossing with a show vehicle “driven” by Shaggy and Scooby, in a wild recreation of the show’s classic “hallway chase.” Thinkwell provided concept design, schematic design, design development, in-field art direction and creative integration, IP management, production, media production, audio design, technical design, and onsite supervision for this innovative attraction.
Guests will hop aboard a spook-tacular ride through the Museum of Mysteries, following the intrepid detectives of Mystery Incorporated as they discover sarcophagi hiding in secret passageways, pass through eerie corridors with haunted mirrors, and escape haunted suits of armor that follow along in hot pursuit. Guests of all ages will shiver with Shaggy and giggle with Scooby as they uncover the mysteries of this mystifying museum!
