In this episode we track the life of WINGS OVER WASHINGTON - one of the best new independent attractions in the world, from concept through opening.
We speak to the industry leaders that made up the All-Star team that delivered this one-of-a-kind experience; Kyle Griffith, Bill Butler and Garner Holt, Cindy Emerick, Brian Yessian, Jeff Dittenber, plus Brent Young and Robert Coker. Discussion on all aspects of this massive production in this epic podcast. Hold on to you seats and get ready to fly.

Wings Over Washington, This state-of-the-art ride takes guests on a thrilling aerial tour of some of Washington State’s most stunning natural environments: Olympic National Forest, the San Juan Islands, Snoqualmie Falls, the Cascade Mountains, and more. The entire 20-minute-long guest experience includes a special-effects-filled pre-show and a fully themed theater, including custom animatronics by Garner Holt Productions. The main show theater is designed to look like a stargazing observation platform in the forest above Elliott Bay.

“We wanted to create more than just a beautiful travelogue of this amazing state,” said Brent
Young, Super 78’s President and Creative Director. “So we developed a complete story that takes
guests on a magical adventure. 
 
Inside the theater, the ride film is displayed with a system designed by Electrosonic state-of-the art Christie digital laser projectors.Binaural sound is delivered to each guest through the ride vehicle, from Dynamic Structures,complimenting the theater’s own complex surround sound system.
Wings Over Washington also boasts a custom musical score supervised by Yessian Music, with a main theme composed by Antonio Di lorio and performed by the Northwest Sinfonia, conducted by David Sabee. Morethan 30 members of the Sacred Water Canoe Family, a Native American vocal and percussion
group, also performed for the attraction’s score.
About Miners Landing
Miners Landing is located on Pier 57 on Seattle’s historic waterfront. On August 17, 1896,
the SS Portland docked near the site of what is now the pier. On board was a ton of gold,
brought back from the Yukon by 68 lucky prospectors. The landing of the Portland made
headlines across the world, triggering the Klondike gold rush and turning Seattle into a
boomtown. Over the next century, Pier 57 was a shipping terminal and then used for fish
processing before being acquired by the Port of Seattle. The Griffith family officially
acquired Pier 57 during the early 1980s, which they still own and operate to this date. The
pier has become the site of multiple beloved Seattle attractions, including great eateries such
as The Crab Pot and the FishermanÅs Restaurant, as well as The Seattle Great Wheel. Wings
Over Washington is its most recent addition.

tspp #323- Jack Lindquist Tribute: 2013 IAAPA Disney Legends Panel 3/10/16

*Subscribe @ iTunes*

Jack Lindquist was not only the first President of Disneyland, but one of the most important innovators of theme park marketing. This podcast is a tribute to the amazing spokesperson that the themed entertainment industry lost on February 28, 2016. Here’s a recording of the 2013 IAAPA Disney Legends Panel, from Orlando, Florida. The presentation is based on the “Year of the Author.” It’s moderated by Bob Rogers (BRC Imagination Arts), and sitting on the panel is Jack Lindquist (former President of Disneyland, Author of In Service to the Mouse), Marty Sklar (former Ambassador of Walt Disney Imagineering, Author of Dream It! Do It!), and Lee Cockerell (former Executive Vice President of Operations for Walt Disney World Resort, Author of Creating Magic and The Customer Rules). Not the best recording (since this audio was never meant to be published), but a wonderful and educational piece on the industry, the importance of leadership, and includes the quick wit of the late, great, Jack Lindquist. Enjoy.
