    3D Dark Ride Among the Finalists for First-Time "Special Venue" Award (January 25, 2006)
    Curse of DarKastle, the spectacular, "next-generation" theme park attraction that debuted at Busch Gardens Williamsburg last year, has been nominated for Outstanding Visual Effects in a Special Venue Project at the 4th Annual VES Awards. VFX supervisors Chuck Comisky and Brent Young, director Mario Kamberg, and VFX executive producer Dina Benadon are recognized in the nomination. This is the first time that the VES Awards, the visual effects industry’s most prestigious awards competition, has included a category for Special Venue Project. Winners will be announced February 15th.
    Curse of DarKastle recently received a THEA Award as Outstanding Attraction from the themed entertainment trade organization TEA. The ride was also named the Attraction-of-the-Year by Theme Park Insider. The attraction has been a smashing success for Busch Gardens Williamsburg, earning tremendous media attention and drawing hundreds of thousands of patrons to the park.
    Curse of DarKastle marked a milestone as the first attraction at a regional park to feature immersive 3D graphics in a motion-based dark ride environment. The 40,000 square foot attraction serves up a bone-chilling ride through a frozen Bavarian castle. Patrons ride in computer-controlled, motion-based "sleighs" as 3D imagery appears all around them.
