Whether you’ve seen these places in person or never before, this aerial adventure will leave you breathless for sure!

“From The Island, guests will be transported…and experience the beauty of America in a unique and unforgettable way.” – The Island President Bob McManus

Fly America

Excitement rises and a secret smile begins as you step inside the Flying Theatre. Guided to your seat, you strap in for an unbelievable ride. The lights dim as the journey begins, lifting you off the ground for an aerial feat across the United States. Hear birds sing, rivers rush, winds howl, and leaves rustle; see lush fields, majestic mountaintops, impressive canyons (one is pretty Grand), and historic statues; smell fresh blossoms, ocean salt, green grass, and desert dust; feel cool breezes, sea mists, and much more. Trust us…or Dynamic Attractions (industry leader in flying theaters across the globe), it’s a whole new immersive experience. Guests will be able to explore places they’ve been wishing to visit for decades from one location — and a unique perspective — with this state-of-the-art ride system and custom film.

The Plan

Plans for the Flying Theatre are now in the final stages with Dynamic Entertainment, sister company to Dynamic Attractions. It will be Dynamic Entertainment’s first project as a company created to bring major theme park attractions to popular tourist destinations. And they certainly chose a great city to start in Pigeon Forge, TN — which brings in $1+ billion annually on tourism alone! Where on The Island will the flying theater attraction be located exactly? Why next to the 200-foot Great Smoky Mountain Wheel and The Island Show Fountain (2 of the more popular Island attractions) of course!
