ETF Ride Systems was founded in 1999 as a subsidiary of the ETF Group. The ETF Group currently encompasses ETF Machinefabriek, Sioux Electronics, ETF USA Corporation, and ETF Ride Systems.
One of the company's first projects was to create a dark ride system for Sally Corporation's Labyrinth of the Minotaur ride. It opened in 2000 at the Terra Mítica amusement park in Spain. The ride system consisted of several vehicles featuring laser blasters moving along a set track. Although this tracked dark ride system was used on other rides, the company has also developed a trackless dark ride system to expand on their offerings.
In 2010, ETF Ride Systems began designing a new ride system for Europa-Park in Germany. Following nine months of design and construction, Da Vinci Flight opened in August 2011. The ride system consists of several vehicles suspended from an overhead monorail line with guests controlling the speed of the ride through the use of on-board pedals.Multi Mover – dark ride systems which can be either tracked or trackless and optionally feature a motion platform
Mystic Mover – similar to the trackless version of the Multi Mover but features smaller cars
Panorama Pedal – an indoor/outdoor ride system which allows riders to pedal to control the speed of the motorised vehicle
Suspended Flight – vehicles are suspended from an overhead monorail line with an operation similar to the Panorama Pedal
The company also has several concepts for rides which they have yet to construct.
