Dynamic Attractions Reveals G.I.Joe vs Cobra Amusement Ride at IAAPA 2017

Earlier today, Dynamic Attractions officially teased an upcoming G.I. Joe vs. Cobra ride at IAAPA 2017. Yes, you read that right! A G.I.Joe vs Cobra Ride! Named “G.I.Joe vs Cobra – The Experience”, the ride takes you through the Temple of the Forbidden Snake on a ride like you’ve never seen before. The best part? Your ride kinda/sorta looks like a VAMP! 

The Dynamic All-Terrain Dark Ride is a trackless, indoor/outdoor dark ride vehicle that breaks boundaries. By breaking boundaries, this attraction actually breaks them as it is completely trackless. Now this doesn’t mean that you can’t take a turn driving it. The Dynamic All-Terrain Dark Ride is the first dark ride that will allow guests to seemingly go anywhere they steer. “In the military world, they call this ‘Fly by Wire’,” explains Haimson. “However, if they come close to another vehicle, wall or obstacle, the system will safely and thematically take control.”

We’ve shared a small gallery of images along with a video of the ride in action that you can check out by reading more below. What are your initial thoughts? Is the G.I.Joe vs Cobra Experience something you’d like to check out? Share your thoughts with us after the break on the Cobra Island Forums!

Toys’R’Us Files For Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection


Although the writing has been on the wall for years, recent days brought word that Toys’R’Us was considering filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. Last night, word came through that this decision has been finalized. From Bloomberg:

Toys “R” Us Inc., the once-dominant specialty retailer and ultimate toyland for a generation of post-war baby boomers, filed for bankruptcy thanks to a crushing debt load from a previous buyout and relentless competition from warehouse and online retailers.

The bankruptcy filing is the latest blow to a brick-and-mortar retail industry reeling from store closures, sluggish mall traffic and the gravitational pull of Amazon.com Inc., which has revolutionized the way people consume with affordable online offerings and global home delivery service.

A dozen-plus major retailers have filed for creditor protection this year, including Payless Inc., Gymboree Corp. and Perfumania Holdings Inc., all of which are using the Chapter 11 process to close underperforming stores and expand online operations.

What will the future hold for TRU after this financial restructuring? Only time will tell. What are your thoughts on the filing? Sound off on the Cobra Island Forums
