Seattle, Washington — ‘Wings Over Washington’ begins its first week of ‘flights’ at Seattle’s popular tourist site, Pier 57, next to the Great Seattle Wheel. The opening also marks Port Coquitlam’s Dynamic Structures entry into North America’s tourist destination attractions market.
“Wings Over Washington is an amazing experience,” states Guy Nelson, CEO of Dynamic Structures and its sister company, Dynamic Attractions. “It’s advanced ride system with cutting-edge technology gives the sensation of a thrilling flight.”
Dynamic Structures has built 50 major attractions for Disney, Universal Studios and other major theme parks. “We are now bringing our flying theatre entertainment product to major tourism destinations.”
This is especially good news to the dozens of companies throughout the Fraser Valley that supply parts and services to the attractions designer and builder.
High-tech, themed attractions are increasingly in demand by major tourist destinations. In addition to Seattle, the company is building a tourist destination flying theatre for Miami and has already installed one in Macau. “We expect locations that draw large numbers of tourists, such as Seattle’s spectacular waterfront, to be a growing part of our business,” adds Nelson.
Dynamic Structures is comprised of 400 engineers, designers, fabricators and theme artists based in Port Coquitlam, Toronto, Orlando Arlington (Texas), Dongguan and Shanghai.
Many of the most popular rides at major theme parks have been engineered and built by Dynamic Structures and Dynamic Attractions. The company is also designing the precision-steel enclosure for world’s largest earth-based telescope, the Thirty Metre Telescope. Dynamic Structures is a subsidiary of Empire Industries (www.empind.com), which is listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol EIL.
