ATTRACTION DESIGN - flying saucer GmbH

Creative Engineering

Devising astounding ideas and solutions is our strength and passion - getting visitors excited and transferring knowledge vividly is our goal.

What drives us is the conviction that you can turn any subject into an exciting and rich experience. With PROJECT ANTHOZOA we had the opportunity to combine incredibly smooth motion (even at minimal speeds) with highly dynamic movements - all possible because of Faulhaber's Linear DC-Servomotors.

Our conceptual design was sparked by the magic of merging two motion concepts: Subaqueous weightlessness while facing perfect balance under the force of gravity. Enjoy!

flying saucer has been developing, planning and designing compelling places and experiences for almost 20 years.

ANTHOZOA is a class of marine invertebrates, which includes the sea anemones, stony corals, soft corals and gorgonians.

Some feature radial symmetry,
with tentacles surrounding
a central mouth.
