successful animation series has sold 1.5 million videos to date and captured
worldwide TV audiences on the NBC, ION and Telemundo networks.
3DBA will be offering partners new and originally created
3-2-1 Penguins! content in 4D. “We are delighted to be
extending our partnership with 3DBA,”

Penguins and with the strong space
element in the series, we have a great
platform for fantastic, immersive family
attractions.”
Entertainment Rights appointed 3DBA as
its key sales partner for the delivery of

Utah, USA. Finley the Fire Engine formats.
Featuring four two-seater vehicles that move 389ft around the edge of the
hotel, passengers control the tilt as they move sideways up to 65 degrees. When
this occurs they are looking straight down over 430ft at the ground below! The tilt
is controlled with two levers mounted on top of the lap bar restraint.
The Sky Experience Adventure also includes the Skywalk,
a ledge outside the 37th mezzanine
level of the hotel and Sky Observatory
viewing deck, restaurant and bar. In
2011 a second attraction from
Interactive Rides, an Inverted Centrifuge,
will be installed at the topmost part of the
building, similar to Insanity, on top of the
Stratosphere Tower in Las Vegas.
Interactive Rides meanwhile has several
other Edge Coaster designs available for
client perusal.
