SimEx-Iwerks announces opening of ‘Take Flight’ at Wilderness Resort


SimEx-Iwerks Entertainment, the industry leader in immersive cinematic attractions, has announced that Wilderness Resort has opened ‘Take Flight – Wilderness Aerial Adventure Ride’.

The 60-seat FlyRide attraction is the first of its kind in the world, and features an enormous dome screen that envelops all guests on three levels.

Take Flight, powered by a patented FlyRide motion system, is an exciting soaring ride experience. Its unique effects include a surging platform that passes through a surprise reveal into the dome.

The attraction’s signature film, Flying Wild, was created and produced by SimEx-Iwerks and MacGillivray Freeman Films, in close collaboration with Wilderness Resort Management.
