Animatronic Thylacine


Client : Penny Royal Adventures

After installing and maintaining several animatronics on the Dark Ride, Bitlink was commissioned to create a new animatronic from scratch. Working in collaboration with Darryl Rogers (Museum Mechanics) and Peter Roberts (Fluidline), Bitlink managed the design and fabrication of a Tasmanian Tiger. From frame design and construction to pneumatics and electronics, the team created and installed the animatronic in the Dark Ride at Penny Royal Adventures.

The final installation included controlled lighting and an audio soundscape. If you take the Dark Ride, you may be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the thylacine, peeking out from its habitat.
