Leading media-based attractions company, Triotech, has developed a first-of-its-kind scaleable flying theatre attraction.
THE FLYER has been designed to bring a flying experience within the reach of a wider range of venues and budgets, thus filling a void in the rapidly-growing sector.
The five key features of the new attraction are: 3D content in both CGI and live footage, a wider motion range, and seat-based motion instead of platform-based motion.
“THE FLYER will be a truly unique experience, ” confirmed Ernest Yale, President and CEO of Triotech. “The five unique elements will create an amazing guest experience. For instance, the fact that our solution is seat-based is very important. It allows every guest to live the same experience and is an important operational and maintenance advantage.”
Eric Marradi, Creative Director at Triotech, said the attraction’s unique ability to mix both intense and smooth motion, as well as CGI with live footage, had created a ‘tremendous story telling tool’:
“For instance, you can imagine an experience flying over a mountain range that would be very beautiful and contemplative. Now imagine the same experience but suddenly there is a storm coming in and that’s where the intense motion will help deliver the thrill factor, ” he added.
The first two deployments of THE FLYER, which launched last week at the IAAPA Expo in Orlando, will be operational in the USA and China in 2017.
