FlyOver America

Mall of America, Bloomington, MN

Project Team

FlyOver America is a virtual flight ride across America. The motion seating and special effects including wind, scents and mist combine to make the ride feel like a true flying experience.  Krech, O’Brien, Mueller & Associates (KOMA) involvement began at the conceptual design phase and extended all the way through construction.  KOMA was tasked with coordinating a pre-designed three-level ride and screen structure within a newly designed building enclosure located in Nickelodeon Universe.  The building is comprised of pre-show exhibits space, a 50’ high theater space, stairs leading to and from the different theater levels, retail areas, box office and administrative spaces, and a renovated park plaza.
