Simworx - Flying High

Simworx launches the Mini Flying Theatre, a smaller footprint, budget-friendly option using the latest cutting-edge ride technology


Dynamic simulation attractions specialist Simworx has added a new attraction to its product range – the Mini Flying Theatre.

Developed as a less expensive option to the larger Flying Theatre, also offered by Simworx in partnership with Dutch ride manufacturer Mondial, the Mini Flying Theatre brings this increasingly popular type of attraction into the reach of smaller operators, with both a more accessible price range and smaller overall footprint, but still utilising the latest, cutting-edge ride technology.

Featuring an immersive, large-format, quarter-dome screen concept, the Mini Flying Theatre offers 20 seats, which are accessed via entrance and exit routes on side gangways from a pre-show area, providing for an approximate hourly capacity of up to 250 guests. Riders are seated in a normal horizontal plane in four rows of five, two on each side of a central holding structure, one behind the other. As the attraction cycle begins, the seats are lifted into the air in a smooth transition to panorama mode in front of the dome screen, with the rear rows moving above those in front.

Unique movements
Riders experience unique movements fully synchronised to the movie being played on the screen, including programmable heave and tilt along with forward and backward motion, while the sensation of flying is enhanced by the riders’ legs dangling freely. In-show effects such as water spray, wind, snow, bubbles, smoke and special-effects lighting provide operators with a truly sensational ride, which is sure to excite, surprise and entertain guests of all ages.

The Mini Flying Theatre is supplied with surround-sound audio and an HD2K or 4K 3D projection system. In addition to the motion synchronisation, the attraction is fully interfaced to projection and sound systems and uses custom show reels on a digital format AV solution. Retractable safety monitored seatbelts are also incorporated as a standard feature.

Competitive price point
“The Mini Flying Theatre is a great addition to our product range and provides operators of all kinds of venues with an opportunity to add such an attraction at a very competitive price point,” says Terry Monkton, Simworx managing director.

“Flying Theatres are proving popular with the whole family – something we have seen with our larger, 60 seat models. But for those with smaller budgets, they have often not been a realistic option. This latest Simworx development makes the possibility of adding a Flying Theatre much more credible for many more operators and I’m delighted we’ve now added it to our ever-growing range of media-based attractions.”

The first example of Simworx’s newest product has already been sold and will make its debut in March 2019.
