Now Boarding: The Flyer - San Francisco

Created by award-winning global attraction developer Triotech in partnership with W.A. Alter, Inc. of San Francisco, The Flyer – San Francisco, dubbed the world’s first flying theater, is now open at Pier 39 in San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf.

The attraction features cinematic artistry and state-of-the-art HD film footage captured with the help of drones and helicopters, and blended with computer-generated imagery (CGI). 

The journey begins when guests enter the two-level structure, housed inside an existing theater space right at the entrance of Pier 39 next to the Aquarium of the Bay and Hard Rock Café where they are introduced to a few characters from the production through engaging projection mapping technology through two pre-shows.

After the immersive introduction is complete, guests are then ushered into the main theater where they will buckle up as the floors slip away and the lights will dim before guests in the 28-seat theater are suspended in front of the 1,100 square foot (50 foot by 22 foot) curved screen that fills their field of sight ensuring that each guest has the feeling of a front-row seat, as well as many special effects, including wind and fog.

Revealing a budding romance and a curious seagull (which also serves as the attraction’s mascot), whimsical vignettes will bounce across custom screens to set the scene for the ultimate experience. 

The Flyer — San Francisco combines motion seats, live-action and computer-generated 3D imagery to simulate flight, and in-theater special effects create a sweeping experience for all your senses!

Launch over the Golden Gate Bridge, barrel down Coit Tower, zoom through Lombard Street and Chinatown, and soar through the Redwood National Forest.

A thrilling and inspiring attraction for all ages, The Flyer — San Francisco is a perfect introduction to San Francisco and a riveting ride for locals, who will see San Francisco in a whole new way! To learn more or for FAM requests, email Clayton Hill
