Functional Description

Once riders are seated with their lap belts secured, the theatre platform rotates to an 85° vertical position, where every rider has a front row seat. Seats can pitch ±10° in synchronization with the projected media, sound or special effects. Wind, water mist or multiple scents can be introduced from the overhead canopy.

When the show ends, the theatre seating platform returns to the horizontal load/unload position. Lap belts are released and riders exit. Riders enter the theater as previous riders exit, minimizing load/unload times.
