Riders will soar around the legendary San Francisco landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, Marin Headlands, Chinatown, and even the Castro. The High Definition effects were created through a mixing of drone footage along with computer generated imagery.
Ernest Yale, the President & CEO of Triotech, released this statement in preparation of the new attraction:
“The anticipation grows as we prepare to welcome guests to The Flyer – San Francisco. Along with W.A. Alter, Inc., we’ve been working with the best in the business to create a thrilling ride that is a love story to one of the most beautiful cities in the world.”
Each ride will take 28 riders on a breathtaking journey. The screen used for the attraction measures in at a staggering 1100 square feet with each trip lasting more than six minutes!
Creating this amazing ride was no easy task – in fact, it was more along the lines of a full movie production using state-of-the-art technology including drones, helicopters, and even CGI. Take a sneak peek look behind the making of The Flyer.
Once the ride ends, guests will be able to purchase a souvenir photo as well as other unique memorabilia. Ticket prices for the attraction range from $15 for children to $25 for adults. The option for Group Tickets is also available. The Flyer will open in early 2018.
