Engineered and built by Entech Innovative Engineering under the direction of the Sea World San Diego team, Blue Horizons is a spectacular show. The show unites sea and sky while showcasing majestic animals and spirited performers. Set in SeaWorld San Diego’s completely renovated Dolphin Stadium, the show features energetic bottle nose dolphins, magnificent pilot whales, a colorful array of exotic birds and amazing acrobatic performers.
The Entech team enjoyed solving the technical and engineering surprises that always arise in a complex project. The stage show set pieces, bridges, lift system and translucent wave forms all offered opportunities for Entech’s engineers and skilled craftsmen to come up with innovative solutions; new ways of doing things.
For example, the show set required hundreds of uniquely shaped translucent panels. To make each shape by hand would have been prohibitively expensive. However, using a translucent FRP material, Entech developed a special stiffening system for the show set panels that permitted them to be cut on a CNC water jet using a pattern. This innovative approach to the project made fabrication much faster and efficient, saving the customer time and money.
Ultimately, Blue Horizons won the IAAPA 2010 Brass Ring Award for Live Entertainment Excellence in the Production Budget of $1 Million or more. Entech is proud to have been a valuable part of the dream team that brought this imaginative show to life.
