Simworx Unveils New Attraction Product: Pegasus Flying Theater
Complementing their existing portfolio of flying attractions, simworx recently launched its new flying theater solution, the Pegasus Flying Theater to this year IAAPA Expo in Orlando. The dynamic and scalable ride considers locations of all abilities and sizes.
The steering system, designed to offer a unique and exciting way to immerse yourself in the on-screen action, has guests sit astride the front restraint system with their legs on either side, while holding on to the front handlebars. Throughout its conception, storytelling enhancement has been at the forefront of the Pegasus design, with the ability to adapt the generically shaped seat to any storyline: guests could be riding a jet ski, a space rocket or even a flying horse.
Riders board from multiple levels, where they are then seated. The shutter doors, in front of their view, open to reveal a large immersive dome screen in front of their eyes.
“By creating a flying theater experience that can be customized to a park’s specific building size requirements, we create a more accessible attraction that offers parks with smaller footprints and budgets a greater opportunity to offer guests a ‘flying experience,” comments Simworx CEO Terry Monaco. “While its flexibility means we can also offer any number of seats – 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, 60, etc. – to suit the seating needs for any specific client.”
During the driving experience, guests enjoy dynamic seat movement via the seat movement base that simulates the sensation of flying, while a variety of in-theater effects such as water spray, wind, smoke and effects Lighting specials give operators an exceptional ride. The seats also feature a flashing interactive button that can be incorporated into the mounts to give riders a sense of input into the storytelling.

The modular, customizable unit solves the recurring problem for venues with height constraints, delivering an authentic flight experience that delivers the same caliber of experience at every scale. The Pegasus can be deployed in 1,2, 3 or even more levels of varying widths, to comfortably fit pre-existing structures using a custom AV solution designed specifically to fit the customer’s desired layout and footprint. This ensures they can get the most productivity possible by using all their space efficiently.
In addition to being able to provide a traditional “Fly Over Experience”, Pegasus is also designed in a way that it can offer story-driven experiences. The Pegasus aims to give more flexibility in the theming of the experience, from the aesthetics of the vehicle to the cargo area, enhancing the narrative journey and creating a more memorable experience.
Simworx Creative Lead Matt Clarkson comments, “Flying theaters have evolved beyond aerial tours of cities or flying through the clouds to story-driven experiences. Guests want to be transported to impossible places”.
