Simworx to launch Mini-Flying Theatre at IAAPA 2017
10 Nov 2017 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
The Mini-Flying Theatre is based on Simworx' 360 Flying Theatre
Simworx has expanded its range of media based dynamic attractions with the launch of the Mini Flying Theatre, an innovative turnkey solution, based on the 360 Flying Theatre.

The Mini Flying Theatre (Mini FT), which will make its official debut at IAAPA in November, features a smaller footprint, with the in show area measuring approximately 13m (42.6ft) by 13m (42.6ft) by 9m (29.5ft), and can accommodate 20 riders per cycle.

Designed to simulate the sensation of flying, the Mini FT moves guests backwards and forwards throughout. The ride’s movements are synchronised to coincide with the movie playing on the dome screen, while riders’ legs are suspended in mid air to elevate the experience.

It also incorporates a range of in-theatre effects including wind, smoke, water spray and special effects lighting, and is equipped with a HD/2K or 4K 3D projection system and surround sound audio, Other features include a 1/4 dome screen, programmable heave and tilt and a custom showreel.

Simworx MD Terry Monkton says: “The Mini Flying Theatre is an innovative and accessible product that requires far less space than some of our larger attractions.”

Monkton adds: “The team has been working non-stop to develop a range of new, cutting-edge experiences and innovative products, including the Mini FT, that we’re really excited to bring to market.”

Other recent launches from Simworx include the AGV Darkride, the Immersive Adventure Simulator and the Paradrop VR, a world-first attraction which launched at EAS in September.
