Wilderness Resort, Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, will open its new “Take Flight” Aerial Adventure Ride on 2 September. The new ride is a FlyRide flying theater by SimEx-Iwerks that takes up to 60 participants on an aerial Adventure. The movie, “Flying Wild” takes participants “soaring” over famous national landmarks, America’s breathtaking national parks and features some of the best aerial footage ever shot of Wisconsin Dells.
The FlyRide has 12 different ride vehicles, which each seat five guests, located on three different stories. Once participants are buckled into their seats, the doors to the theatre swiftly rise and the seats surge forward, leaving guests feet dangling as they stare at an enormous 65 x 47 feet (20 x 14 m), domed movie screen. Artificial scents, wind and mist add to the sensation of flying.
This summer Wilderness Resort also unveiled a new 3,000 square foot (279 sq m) Lost Cabin Laser Tag from Laserforce and a new “Twister” room escape by DOA based on the 1974 Super Outbreak. In addition, the resort completely redid its New Frontier entrance and created a stunning, new modern lobby featuring three-story cathedral ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows on three sides of the space. Cozy seating, a convenience store, three party rooms, additional check in stations are all part of the new space.
