Suspended Theater®

Suspended Theater® brings the unique sensation of flight to life in a whole new way.

This groundbreaking ride system has been used in nationally-recognized, award-winning attractions. Now you can harness its power. The experience begins in the loading area; low ceiling and fairly typical, the guests are given the impression of being in a standard theater. They take their seats and media begins on a small screen. Suspense builds, although the guests begin to become momentarily complacent.

Finally, guests experience the big reveal. The ceiling seems to be ripped away from above as they take off. Raised by a unique lifting system, the guests tilt into place, smoothly yet quickly lifting skyward into a large, incredible vista of spectacular, immersive storytelling.

Our sophisticated system utilizes three degrees of freedom, allowing Suspended Theater® visitors to glide through amazing landscapes smoothly and quietly. This technology is often imitated – with Falcon’s, you can have the real thing.

Suspended Theater® is unmatched in the world of flying theater systems. It exudes raw power and elegance as it takes riders soaring across inspiring adventures. Everywhere guests look they are immersed in media content, flying across fabulous landscapes and immersive dreamscapes. There are no distractions interrupting the storyline. Once lift off occurs there is only pure, uninhibited flight.
