Triotech, a supplier and designer of interactive and immersive attractions, has announced a new partnership with Knott's Berry Farm, that will see the company develop a new attraction to celebrate the park's centenary.

The new ride, called Knott's Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair, is expected to open in 2020. It will act as a sequel to the original Knott's Bear-y Tales dark ride, which opened in 1975 and was designed by Disney Imagineer Rolly Crump. The original ride was located in the Roaring 20's themed area of the park and closed in 1986 after eleven years of operation.

A 4D interactive dark ride, Knott's Bear-y Tales: Return to the Fair, is set 34 years after the original ride and will follow original characters Boysen and Girlsen Bear on their travels to the Country Fair to win the blue ribbon prize for their boysenberry pies, before they encounter Crafty Coyote and his mischevious pups intent on stealing the pies. Guests will make their way through a series whimsical scenes, trying to score points anrecover the stolen pies in ride vehicles equipped with jelly blasters.

In addition to designing the attraction, Triotech will also create the scenic theming and produce the animation and gaming systems throughout.

Ernest Yale, founder, president and CEO of Triotech, said: "For this unique attraction, the Knott's team gave us access to a wealth of archive materials that have been key understanding the original Knott's Bear-y Tales®."

Jon Storbeck, VP and general manager of Knott's Berry Farm, said: "The return of Knott's Bear-y Tales is perfect for the 100th anniversary because it brings one of the park's most ostalgic and beloved attractions in an innovative 4D dark ride format that will delight an entirely new generation of fans."

Nol Van Genuchten, VP creative at Triotech, said: "Knott's Bear-yTales carries a great significance and evokes an intense sense of nostalgia for those who first experienced the ride as children in the '70s and '80s. It's our goal to capture the spirit, creativity and originality that made this dark ride such a success and thus honouring the cherished memories of the original attraction."
