San Francisco will be ready for take-off in late 2017.  This dynamic new attraction will be located at the entrance to PIER 39, in the heart of San Francisco’s iconic Fisherman’s Wharf.  The Flyer-San Francisco will be the largest theme park inspired attraction to open in San Francisco in decades.  Considered the perfect introduction to San Francisco, it will become a must-see experience for visitors of all ages.

Brought to you by the ALTER FAMILY and TRIOTECH, The Flyer – San Francisco will be a blend of 3D content, live state-of-the-art film footage and computer generated imagery (CGI) for the ultimate in attraction experiences.

“Collaborating with an award-winning global attraction developer like TRIOTECH enables us to deliver an incredible guest experience,” said John Alter, President of the ALTER FAMILY. “We have had the pleasure of working with their team since 2012 when we launched our current award-winning 7D Experience attraction on PIER 39. The success of that collaboration has brought us to this exciting moment with The Flyer-San Francisco.”

Mr. Ernest Yale, President & CEO of TRIOTECH stated, “The Flyer – San Francisco will be a truly unique experience where guests will literally be plunged into the action. Actually, The Flyer-San Francisco was named by USA Today as one of the 12 most anticipated theme park rides of 2017, and by Travel & Leisure as one of the fastest and scariest best theme park rides opening in 2017, so there is great anticipation for this attraction.”

This new 3D attraction will take guests on a 10-minute fully immersive flight over San Francisco’s iconic landmarks and sights, as well as down some of the steepest, and crookedest streets. They will be treated to amazing views as well as thrills – all from the comfort of their seats. The pre-show will introduce guests to the exciting characters and storyline that will take them on the ultimate San Francisco adventure. Once guests are seated, the lights dim and passengers are lifted into the air, surrounded by a giant curved screen as they take an immersive 3D journey. The Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Coit Tower, Chinatown, the Castro, and San Francisco Bay are just a sampling of the iconic sights that will come to life for all. Guests will even feel the mist from the fog of San Francisco Bay.

ALTER FAMILY: The Alter Family currently owns and operates 7D Experience and LaZer Challenge on PIER 39 in San Francisco. The Flyer-San Francisco, to open Fall 2017, will be the newest attraction for the Alter Family as they continue to develop theme park inspired rides and experiences.
