Major Iceland Entertainment

FlyOver Iceland is one of Iceland’s first major entertainment venues, housed in an iconic building that features an illuminated cylindrical theater for the ride and immersive spaces for the pre-show experiences and retail areas.

The first pre-ride experience features an ancient Viking longhouse, recreated by scenography and an integrated video content screen. Here, a storyteller gives guests an insight into the powerful influence of Iceland’s past with shadow-play projections illustrating the stories on the wall of the longhouse.

In the second experience, the Wellof Time, guests meet Su Vitra, a troll inspired by local legends. The troll gives guests a poetic vision of Iceland through two unique adventures to ignite the imagination and set the scene for the flight. The troll’s stories are illustrated by projections that animate the floor and content projected on suspended kinetic screen, immersing the guests.

Recreating the atmospheric pre-show spaces required sophisticated projection techniques and advanced show control techniques to manage the complex lighting and immersive content. Electrosonic used Smart Monkeys’ innovative ISAAC virtualized platform for Medialon show control. This system coordinates the operation of the ride, preshow spaces and the overall building.

"By using ISAAC we were able to eliminate the need to carry multiple spare machines and reduce the need for our staff to know detailed configuration steps to set them up in case of a failure.”

- Eric Sambell, Global Director, Construction and Entertainment Technology, FlyOver Attractions.
