Closing in on a quarter century of Theas TEA president David Willrich of DJ Willrich Ltd.
Welcome to the 2018 Thea Awards! This is in fact the 24th annual Thea Awards - which means that next year will mark the 25th – a quarter century of celebrating excellence in the creation of compelling places and experiences. We are in a global industry. The TEA continues to expand, and the success of our organization stimulates our industry around the world as it continues to evolve. This is clearly reflected in the geographic spread of our award recipients. All that shapes the big weekend of events that starts with the TEA Summit and culminates in the Thea Awards Gala. The TEA is very much about serving and supporting its membership, and the TEA Summit and Thea Awards are core products reflecting the culture of our association and our industry. The growth of TEA enables us to further strengthen the range and quality of events and products we offer, adding to the value of being a TEA member. One example is the expansion of the TEA SATE conference program, which now takes place in Europe and Asia as well as in the US. I hope to see you at one of the TEA SATE conferences this year; the first is TEA SATE Europe 2018 in Germany, May 2-3 at Europa-Park. Our association has a robust presence on the regional as well as the international level, with a full calendar of mixers, educational events, behind-the-scenes tours and more, taking place throughout the year. There are four TEA Global Divisions - in the Americas, EME and Asia Pacific. If you are not already a TEA member, we hope you will become one. If you are a member, we hope you are making the most of the rich opportunities provided. Getting back to the here and now of the 2018 TEA Thea Awards, I’d like to express heartfelt congratulations – on my own behalf, and on behalf of TEA – to all of this
year’s Thea Award recipients, and to all the amazing members of our unique industry who are represented by these awards. Special accolades to the Buzz Price lifetime achievement honoree, Phil Hettema of The Hettema Group. In addition to all of their groundbreaking projects around the world, Phil and his team produced the Thea Awards Gala for the past three years. This year, it’s our turn to throw the party for Phil, a brilliant and innovative contributor to the worldwide attractions industry. Additional thanks are due to TEA COO Jennie Nevin and event producer Tammie Richards, and everyone on the production team for all their hard work and attention to detail. And finally, to the extensive network of people and companies who support TEA and its endeavors. This includes sponsors of TEA, our organization’s dedicated volunteers and leaders, the TEA staff and all event participants. For their particular, essential support of the 2018 TEA Thea Awards Gala, very special thanks to Chimelong Group, presenting sponsor; Ryan Miziker and Miziker Entertainment, producers; Christie, projection partner; and AECOM, Theme Index Partner. You are TEA.Your valued contributions make everything possible.

History of the Thea Awards The establishment of the TEA Thea Awards as the preeminent award program recognizing excellence in themed entertainment projects was seminal to the recognition of themed entertainment as a professional industry. The Theas shine a bright light on the industry and its leaders, fabricators and creative geniuses who make themed entertainment magic. -- Themed Entertainment Association (TEA) founder Monty Lunde, Technifex TEA created the Thea Awards to bring recognition to achievement, talent and excellence within the themed entertainment industry. The Thea Awards began in 1994 with a single Lifetime Achievement Award, and the first honoree was Harrison “Buzz” Price, a pioneer in entertainment feasibility. Monty Lunde, Bob Rogers, Pat Scanlon and Barry Howard were on the first Thea Awards organizational and judging committee. The Thea Awards were named in reference to three words: • “Thea” - the Greek goddess from whom all light emanates • “Theater” - derived from the goddess Thea • “TEA” - the acronym referring to our Association The original Thea trophies were designed by Barry Howard and Jeremy Railton. The current Thea trophy debuted in 2001 and was designed by Zofia Kostryko. The first year’s ceremony, held at the Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, was produced by Ron Miziker, and coordinated by Jana Love, with TEA founder Monty Lunde serving as master of ceremonies. The 1995 Thea Awards also took place at the Biltmore, again with a single honoree: the late Marty Sklar (an official Disney Legend). After Buzz Price passed away in 2010, TEA renamed the Thea Lifetime Achievement Award in his honor. It is now called the Buzz Price Thea Award Recognizing a Lifetime of Distinguished Achievements. The third year (1996) saw the introduction of Awards for Outstanding Achievement (AOA). Ten AOAs were bestowed. The Thea Classic category was created in 1997. It can be given to one achievement per year that has stood the test of time. Also in 1997, the AOA category of Excellence on a Limited Budget was created. For 2014-2015, new Wizarding World of Harry Potter attractions at Universal Studios prompted the Thea Awards Committee to create the Paragon Award, which recognizes a project that sets a new bar of excellence. In 2017, several Thea recipients represented the newly created category of Connected Immersion, recognizing that tremendous advances
in technology, social behavior and connectivity are reinventing our notion of storytelling and immersion. As our industry has expanded globally, the Thea Awards have recognized this and the geographic coverage of the awards has grown accordingly. It should also be noted that the Thea Awards are not by any means confined to theme parks. Museums and museum exhibitions, heritage centers, casinos, multimedia spectaculars, brand experiences, theatrical productions and many other types of attractions and guest experiences fall into the realm of projects that can be eligible for Thea Awards. The TEA Peter Chernack Distinguished Service Award is also presented at the Thea Awards Gala. This award was created and is decided by the TEA Past Presidents Committee, and was renamed in honor of the late Peter Chernack, a past president of TEA who was instrumental in conceiving this award. The culture of the Thea Awards is unique. Here are some key characteristics: • Honoree: the project itself – Thea AOA and Thea Classic awards honor the entire achievement. The trophy is awarded to the project owner. • Official project credits – The project owner is obliged to furnish a comprehensive credits list for publication by TEA. In this way the Thea Awards have resulted in the first official project credits of the themed entertainment industry. • Trophies for the team – Individuals and companies named on the official credits list of a Thea-honored project are entitled to obtain their own trophies from TEA. • No set categories – The TEA is free to honor several achievements in the same category, create a new category, or to skip categories as the year’s achievements warrant. • No secrets – Award recipients are openly announced in November, and the awards are formally presented the following spring at the Thea Awards Gala. • Open nominations – Anyone can nominate a project for a Thea Award. It is not necessary to be a TEA member.You can nominate your own project. The objective is simple: To find excellence and celebrate it. As we look to the future, the Thea Awards will continue to grow and evolve, while continuing to honor the original objective of bringing recognition to achievement, talent and professional excellence within our themed entertainment industry.

Remembering the “Dad” of an Industry:
The TEA Thea Awards Committee pays tribute to Marty Sklar By Adam J. Bezark, chair of the TEA Thea Awards Committee
If Walt Disney was America’s “Uncle,” then Marty Sklar was Imagineering’s “Dad.”
He was a pioneer in the themed entertainment industry. A mentor and role model. A tireless patron of young artists.
He attended the opening of every Disney theme park in the world today, twelve in sum, from the original Disneyland Park in 1955 to Shanghai Disneyland in 2016. He was more than a father of an entire new breed of entertainment. He was guide and guardian to many of today’s most accomplished creative talents, both inside his beloved Walt Disney Imagineering, and in the great world beyond. Martin A. Sklar held a role unlike anyone else in our business. With a career that spanned over 50 years, from the industry’s infancy to its emergence as a legitimate international art and business form, Marty Sklar embodied the best qualities of craftsman, teacher and visionary leader. Embracing an Industry: the TEA and Thea Awards Marty Sklar spent his entire career at Disney; but he felt a deep commitment to the growing themed entertainment industry that he helped engender, and in particular to the TEA. Marty became involved in the organization from its early days. In 1995 he was the second recipient of the TEA’s highest individual honor, the Thea Award for Lifetime Achievement (renamed the Buzz Price Thea Award for a Lifetime of Distinguished Achievements in memory of Harrison “Buzz Price, another of Marty’s legendary contemporaries).” As a Lifetime honoree, Marty became an active member of the Thea Awards Nominating Committee, helping to seek out and celebrate excellence in immersive experiences for over 20 years, until his passing in 2017.
All of us who knew Marty - worked for him, learned from him, benefited from his support of the new - feel his departure as if the loss of a family member. Our “Dad” is gone. But in so many ways, he’s still with us. He’s constantly reminding us to push. To make it better. To focus. And to pass our knowledge on to the next generation. When the Thea Awards Nominating Committee met for the first time this season, it was shortly after Marty’s passing, and we all felt his absence. Through the months of meetings - reviewing hundreds of entries - we missed his insight, wit, and relentless commitment to excellence. When our final slate of nominees was complete, we realized we still had one important task remaining: to honor the man who shaped so many of our lives and careers. The Committee was unanimous in its decision. For his visionary leadership, his tireless mentorship, and his eternal friendship, the Thea Awards Nominating Committee is honored to dedicate this year’s slate of Thea Awards to our friend, our mentor, our colleague and our “Dad”… Marty Sklar.

Above right: Marty Sklar at the 2017 Thea Awards Gala. Right: With his wife, Leah Sklar. Far right: Cover of Marty’s book, “Dream It! Do It!”
Marty’s approach to creative challenges, his relentless pursuit of excellence, and his fearless embrace of bold ideas will be influencing artists and innovators generations from now. But - most important - Marty was Marty. He loved all of us, knew us all by name, and enjoyed the process of collaboration and creativity. And as important as he felt it all was, he never took it so seriously that we couldn’t have a good time while making the impossible, possible. — Bob Weis
Remembering Marty Sklar: Testimonials from the Thea Awards Committee Last July, Marty and I shared memories of great people that helped shape Imagineering. It was Marty’s last public appearance. The stories Marty relived, and the closeness I felt with him that last day, will be with me forever. — Tony Baxter Marty was an astonishing editor. With a few words, he could adjust your thinking, unlock your vision, and send you off in a better direction, feeling great about the improvements. — Adam Bezark Marty built an incredibly strong legacy for Imagineering and the entire themed entertainment industry by encouraging talent, dreams, passion, vision and the idea of working on something bigger than yourself. — Susan Bonds Marty was genuinely kind, and I will always remember him making me laugh backstage to calm me down before we were about to present a Thea Award together many years ago. — Lisa Passamonte Green Marty so valued everyone’s contributions that he never failed to send all a hand-written note of thanks. — Bob Gurr Marty always had the interests of the industry at large in mind when we reviewed and deliberated on the nominations. — Craig Hanna In many ways, Marty became the face of what Disney created in its parks worldwide, a conduit directly to Walt. Even from outside Disney, his encouragement, generosity, and energy will be an inspiration forever. — Garner Holt
Expert or fresh beginner, anyone felt comfortable with the legendary Marty; his irresistible smile was immediately making you feel you were a member of the entertainment family. — Yves Pepin Marty was always there to inspire, to question, and to challenge us to be and do better than our best! — Roberta Perry Marty fostered talent and would go far beyond the normal channels to help someone advance when he recognized talent. He was the mentors’ mentor. — Jeremy Railton Marty had an ability to see in a person the total combination of features it would take to become an Imagineer… a power that took a lot of empathy, a lot of attention, a lot of patience, and a lot of faith. — Joe Rohde A Mentor, a Colleague and a great Friend... I miss his perspective, wit and RED pen! — Rick Rothschild He was the “Imagine” in “Imagineering,” the defender of “quality wins out,” the communicator of concepts emanating from “blue sky” meetings, the beacon of principle and clear direction, a mentor to all and an educator both in passion and for a legion of future creators who will benefit from his generosity. — Frank Stanek Marty equalized the playing field to make sure all talent gets an opportunity to shine. — Bob Ward
No matter how busy he was, when discussing something with Marty, he always gave you as much time as he could, and he treated you as if you and your discussion were the most important things that he had to deal with in the world. He set an incredible standard for all of us to follow. — Keith James Marty was completely committed to the people and causes he loved; Imagineering, Ryman Arts and the TEA, and for twenty years never wavered in his support of the Thea mission to find excellence. Incredible! — Monty Lunde

The Buzz Price Thea Award for a Lifetime of Distinguished Achievements Gentle Giant with a Mighty Vision by the THG Team
When everyone at The Hettema Group (THG) heard that our founder and creative executive, Phil Hettema, was named this year’s recipient of the prestigious Buzz Price Thea Award, we decided to surprise him with a special welcome his next morning in the office. Phil arrived to discover a red carpet rolled out before him, with the entire THG team applauding and cheering him on. It was a treat for us “Hettemites” to have an excuse to celebrate Phil for all that he has accomplished so far in his career and to thank him for everything he does for all of us at THG. And it’s an honor to share a bit here about the type of leader Phil is and the kind of company he has created. Ask around the THG design studios for some words to describe Phil, and you’ll hear an impressive list: Creator. Originator. Technology wizard. Entertainer. Legend. But Phil is not only a guiding creative force at THG.You’ll also hear our team describe him with words like: Gentle. Thoughtful. Collaborative. Respectful. Respected. Phil is a visionary leader who’s also a good guy, and he’s proof that good guys can achieve great things. Phil was a born creator, entertainer, and leader. In his younger years, his creative focus was music, and he brought joy to his world as a percussionist and the student director of the band at Pasadena High School, and then as a music major at Cal State Long Beach. Music is still one of Phil’s passions, and it’s always fun for our teams when he encourages us to start thinking about the right music for a guest experience even in the earliest stages of the project.
Phil’s drive to create and entertain found new forms of expression as he leapfrogged his way into the themed entertainment industry. He became a designer in the costume shop at Disneyland, dreaming up costumes for the industry classic Main Street Electrical Parade. He ran the puppet workshop of the legendary television puppeteers Sid and Marty Krofft. He worked as a creative consultant for Radio City Music Hall’s Christmas Spectacular and, later, the halftime show for Super Bowl XVII. And he served as a production supervisor for the opening and closing ceremonies of the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Phil’s passion for creating wholly unique guest experiences and breakthrough attractions led to a 14year tenure at Universal Creative, where he became senior VP and after which he founded The Hettema
Group. That same drive is the ultimate inspiration behind so much of what THG has accomplished, as we enter our 16th year as a company. Phil likes to joke that his mantra for THG, from the start, has been to “never do the same thing once.” But he couldn’t be more serious or more determined in his push to envision the impossible. Always, the audience is at the center of THG’s creative process, with one of our key goals being to deliver something people can’t experience anywhere else and something they will remember forever. It’s a challenge that makes heading into a charrette at THG exciting and, at times, intimidating. But it’s also what has inspired THG teams to create truly one-of-
a-kind, award-winning experiences like the One World Observatory guest experience at One World Trade Center in New York, or the High Roller observation wheel in Las Vegas, or the Beyond All Boundaries cinematic experience at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. As the project process gets underway, Phil’s other admirable qualities as a leader shine; first and foremost, his talent as an inspirational ringmaster. Phil has built a diverse team of creative and technical talents – many of them industry veterans and legends in their own right as well as a cadre of talented, young up-and-comers. They work in an atmosphere of collaboration, teamwork, and respect that starts with Phil. He values what each team member brings to the process and he has a knack for

lighting the spark that makes us all rise to our next challenge.
of live experiences.” That first job in Jordan allowed Phil to establish THG.
Phil treats his clients with this same respect, and clients speak highly of him.
Beyond his creative vision and leadership skills, Phil has a well-deserved reputation for being a nice guy. His generous spirit is evident in his passion for inspiring new generations of creative professionals. He has long supported Ryman Arts in their quest to offer free arts training to high school students and was recently named the President of the organization’s Board of Directors. At Phil’s invitation, THG also regularly hosts visiting days for college, high school and elementary school students at our studios.
Nick Mueller, the founding president of the National World War II Museum, described Phil as one of the most creative minds he has encountered in the museum or attraction world. But Mueller is also quick to point out Phil’s collaborative nature: “He listens to the client very carefully, and amazes you with what he comes back with.” It’s that combination of creative vision and collaborative spirit that inspired Phil’s longtime client Jeffrey Katzenberg to recommend Phil for a resort master planning job for the King of Jordan back in 2002. Katzenberg called Phil “one of the most innovative and creative and dynamic storytellers in the world
Phil is just a good guy. It’s that simple. We at THG couldn’t be happier and prouder. So, Phil, from all your friends and fans at THG . . . congratulations! And thank you! We’re grateful to be part of this very special place you’ve created.
to our friend and colleague
Phil Hettema on receiving The Buzz Price Thea Award for your lifetime of distinguished achievements in the industry.
And to all of the 2018 Thea Award Recipients.
and everyone at Thinkwell.
Joe Fox & Annika Oetken Recipients of the TEA Peter Chernack Distinguished Service Award
Joe Fox, PMP, senior project engineer, Birket Engineering If you’ve attended a TEA conference such as the annual TEA Summit or TEA SATE, you have likely met Joe Fox, and/or heard his Joe Fox name mentioned, as he is generally a fixture behind the curtain making sure all things technical go forward with quality and consistency. Joe has been a supportive, reliable and highly valued volunteer within TEA for a number of years. He’s always positive and upbeat, and ready for a challenge. He’s also a TEA “NextGen” success story although he was making a career transition as an adult, rather than a recent grad. Joe understands the concept and value of giving back: He knows that you get out of TEA what you put in. He is currently a member of the TEA Eastern North America Division Board and has served on the TEA NextGen Committee for several years. How did you get your start in the industry? I’ve been interested in themed entertainment since 1997 when I visited Epcot with my high school marching band. It took a while (and a couple career and life changes) to get there, but in 2013, I interviewed with Birket, and they gave me a chance. It’s been a wild ride ever since, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. We work in ride and show control, specialty lighting, pyrotechnics control systems, production, specialty consumer merchandise and many other things. We’ve done work for every Disney and Universal park around the world, and hundreds of other places as well.
Do you have a favorite slogan or saying that you use? Walt Disney once said, “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” I couldn’t agree more. What are you really doing behind the scenes during the TEA SATE and TEA Summit conferences? I serve as liaison between the technology and the presenters at the events, to make sure that the brilliant ideas and awesome presentations that participants have poured their hearts and minds into get onto the screen and come out of the speakers’ microphones - and, from there, into the hearts and minds of the audience.
Annika Oetken By Nick Farmer, TEA Past President Annika first came into our industry in 2003 through a chance comment by a friend that there was a vacancy at the Bremen Annika Oetken Space Center, which at the time was under construction. She had previously been working in banking, but immediately joined the Space Center attraction team and entered the wonderful world of themed entertainment. There she met Phil Hartley – destined to be TEA EME Division President in 2011 - who was project managing the AV and lighting installation. Phil clearly saw Annika’s talent for organization and quickly hired her as his Technical

Coordinator for his next project, working for Thinkwell on the Ice Age Adventure ride at Germany’s Movie Park. Also working on the Ice Age project was Nick Farmer, due to be International President in 2008; before long Annika was known to all the original ‘old hands’ of TEA European division. There followed many projects with Phil in Germany, the UK, Hungary and China. Annika then worked with Nick Farmer on several projects in the UK and in Finland. This wide range of projects meant Annika was becoming well known within the European attractions industry and in 2007 she began to provide the TEA EME Division with some administrative support. She stepped up to the plate with great energy and enthusiasm, and over the course of seven years provided support to four EME Division Presidents. She undertook this role at a challenging
time for the EME Division. Beyond her characteristic attention to detail and organizational capabilities, Annika always had a happy smile for members new and old and a good memory for the names of people and companies throughout EME’s membership, making them feel truly welcomed and valued. We considered her assistance vital to helping maintain and expand membership numbers at a time when membership was fragile. Annika also participated in the organization of many members’ meetings, mixers and the first two SATE conferences held in Europe (Amsterdam and Paris), and she often worked beyond expectations. The entire EME Division joins together in celebrating Annika’s Distinguished Service Award. We are so proud of her!
Cedar Point —
Sandusky, OH, USA
Simply put … there’s no place like Cedar Point. Located on a scenic peninsula jutting out into the waters of Lake Erie, Cedar Point is a unique American amusement park and resort paradise. Cedar Point, the flagship park of Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, has a rich history dating back to 1870, making it the second-oldest operating amusement park in North America. What began as a simple bathing beach and bathhouse is today a modern, multi-day family getaway and a mecca for thrill-seekers; a 364-acre, world-class entertainment destination with more than 150 rides, shows and attractions. Cedar Point is consistently voted one of the “Best Amusement Parks in the World” at the Golden Ticket Awards, presented by industry publication Amusement Today.
Cedar Point is also known as the “The Roller Coaster Capital of the World!®” and to its credit the thrill ride innovations include many record-breaking bold and daring roller coaster creations. The park is home to the world’s first “hyper-coaster,” Magnum XL-200, the first “giga-coaster,” Millennium Force, the first-of-its-kind “strata-coaster,” Top Thrill Dragster, and coming in 2018, the world’s first “hyper-hybrid” roller coaster, Steel Vengeance. Yet Cedar Point is so much more than great thrill rides and roller coasters. The Cedar Point Shores Waterpark provides 18 acres of attractions designed to help guests beat the heat, while the famous mile-long Cedar Point Beach and Boardwalk continues its legacy as a place to play, relax and cool off. Three kids’ areas - including
The Only Boundlessness, Makes True Experiences 720〫is the only system in the world that can create the full-phase experience, without a frame, without the boundary. The 720〫system can be combined with motion platform, suspended and elevated machinery, simulators, and other rides systems, creating the experience that goes to the space, to the deep sea, to the air, and beyond. YAOX Entertainment Integration Co., Ltd. has established the first 720〫 theatre in the Taiwan Pavilion in the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. And with the top-notch technique of the 720〫, we can help you become the top theme entertainment in the world.

Official Credits List - Cedar Point Thank You Cedar Point began as a simple bathing beach in 1870. Since then, it has become a massive family vacation resort, thanks to the hard-working, innovative teams that fueled its success. From those who founded “The Queen of American Watering Places” to the operators and leaders of today, many attraction breakthroughs and “firsts” have happened at Cedar Point, because of their drive and determination. While the list is by no means complete, Cedar Point offers special thanks to these men and women who have contributed to the growth and development of a humble, treelined peninsula on the shores of Lake Erie.

Ghost Town Alive! —
Knott’s Berry Farm, Buena Park, CA, USA
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement Connected Immersion Theater, Limited Budget
This Wild West entertainment experience engages thousands of guests per day in an interactive, roleplaying attraction. Guests journey back to the 1800s to participate in a multi-threaded story taking place in real time alongside period bandits, cowboys, horses, musicians and the town mayor. Guests join costumed actors as they unfold the tale of the town of Calico in the park’s Ghost Town themed area, unlocking adventures from bank robberies and jail breaks to a good ol’ Western hoedown and more, the experience enables families to work together using their imaginations and become stars in the interactive theatrical production. The Ghost Town setting enhances the authenticity of the experience and brings the town of Calico to life through authentic buildings from Old West towns mixed in with stunning reproductions. The Old School House and Blacksmith Shop are just two examples of some of the original buildings from frontier time that Walter Knott relocated to the park in the mid-1900s. Each actor is trained to naturally greet each guest passing by and bring them into the story in an organic way by catching them up on the town’s happenings.
The story begins right after the notorious Mayfield Gang escapes the custody of Sheriff Wheeler, and he and the townsfolk need help capturing the bandits and keeping Calico safe. Guests can ally with the Sheriff, or join the Mayfields. Throughout the day, major events move the storyline forward. The storylines culminate in the evening with a town-wide hoedown celebration featuring all the characters. The experience is a driver of repeat visitation and incremental revenue. Guests have a reason to return again and again as the creative team creates new storylines throughout the season. Many season passholders now bring their families to the park for the sole purpose of spending the day in Ghost Town. Purchases of food and beverage have increased as well as merchandise: unique Ghost Town Alive! souvenirs and Western clothing. Most important of all, parents have shared uplifting stories about how their shy children have opened up to the Calico characters and acquired social skills.

Symbolica: The Palace of Fantasy — de Efteling,The Netherlands
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Attraction
Symbolica is a world-class dark ride displaying excellence and innovative storytelling with intimate detail: stunning attention to artistry, imagination, old-world craftsmanship, fluid animatronics, interactive, themed trackless vehicles, the orchestral score, and everything one sees and hears. Guests tour the castle of King Pardulfus of Hartenhof (Court of Hearts). It begins with a lavish exterior; and then, a totally unexpected surprise in the pre-show, where the staircase splits apart and guests pass under it, entering the secret parts of the castle.
“Flights” of three trackless vehicles dispatch together from the load area, but thereafter each follows a slightly different path according to its particular theme: Hero Tour, Music Tour and Treasure Tour. Each path includes some large, shared scenes and also some more intimate, interactive moments unique to that vehicle’s theme. Guests engage these via an onboard touchscreen. Symbolica is a lovingly crafted masterpiece.

Pandora - The World of Avatar —
Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, FL, USA
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement Theme Park Area Development Based on James Cameron’s 2009 blockbuster film “AVATAR,” the new, 12-acre land is a tour de force of placemaking designed and built to be about the people, environment, culture, animals, and beauty of the Na’vi world. It is celebrated for its unparalleled level of detail and immersive qualities, touching all senses. Kaltxi! (Hello/Greetings!) Pandora – The World of Avatar, located in the Valley of Mo’ara in Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park, has been described as feeling like a national park on an alien planet. Reviewers on opening day wrote: “Disney has delivered on James Cameron’s filmatic vision of Na’vi with unparalleled detail and incomparable immersion.” “The place feels authentic yet based in science.” “5 stars from TripAdvisor.” Additionally, immersion into this world does not depend on one having seen Mr. Cameron’s film. The Los Angeles Times: “Haven’t seen ‘Avatar’ or don’t remember it? No problem!”
Guests enter Pandora’s interactive rainforest of iconic, floating mountains peaking at about 130 feet above the valley floor that appear to defy gravity. Gushing waterfalls and grand rock formations are found among the extraterrestrial Pandoran flora. 100% hand-sculpted and photo-realistic plants are both alien and grand in scale. The always-in-character eco-tourism travel agency “Alpha Centauri Expedition field guides” speak of the land’s mysteries and warn guests not to get too close to the carnivorous “chalice plants.” One can hear a cacophony of animals that vary in types of calls and by time of day. The evening’s gradual transitional experience beginning at dusk is as breathtaking as the meditative and aweinspiring daytime experience, yet very different, as plant life begins to glow in the twilight. Another reviewer/ journalist commented: “…evening transforms into a bioluminescent feast for the eyes.” Irayo (thank you).

Avatar Flight of Passage —
Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, FL, USA
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Attraction
This immersive flying experience, flawlessly executed, delivers the magic and majesty of the original James Cameron blockbuster feature film “AVATAR,” allowing guests to link to their avatars to ride on the back of a banshee and explore the world of Pandora. It achieves new heights of experiential storytelling and is exemplary in how it adapts movie fiction into the park setting in a meaningful way. The newly designed, motion-based simulator is paired with an expansive screen and high-resolution digital media to achieve the scope and scale of this new world. It’s accompanied by off- and on-board effects that contribute to the sensation of open-air flying over vistas of thousands of animals - migrating, feeding or leaping, bringing the world of Pandora to life. The queue leading up to the main attraction - from the landscape that comes to life in living light and color at night, to the mountain cave dedicated to banshee study and habitat restoration - is a nice fictional nod to the mission of Disney’s Animal Kingdom® Theme Park – giving animals a more natural habitat for living and study.
The pre-show is an exemplary adaptation of movie fiction to give a personalized and realistic experience to each guest. There’s a great decontamination effect, and visitors learn the importance of the connection between avatar and banshee. Once in flight, guests experience panoramic views … inadvertently triggering an encounter with a massive predator … narrowly escaping same … exploring a bioluminescent cave … a joyous sequence of aerial acrobatics – all with the impression of riding on the back of a real creature, thanks to ingeniously designed ride vehicles that simulate the breathing and heartbeat of each banshee. Guests lean forward, cradled by leg and back restraints. Wearing 3D glasses, the feeling of flight is so immersive that guests quickly forget they’re on a ride and enjoy the vivid, large screen imagery. The programming and synchronization of movements and off-board effects is executed flawlessly. And the ride provides an authentic connection to the overall themes and core values of Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

Rainis’ Museum — Tadenava, Latvia Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement Museum Rehab, Limited Budget
This unique exhibition, celebrating Latvia’s famous poet, playwright and politician Rainis (1865–1929) takes visitors through a series of interactive installations, beautifully designed and crafted of wood, each evoking a key moment of Rainis’s life or legacy. This participatory experience, compelling in creation and execution, engages the imagination and is educational and meaningful for all ages. The TEA Thea Awards Committee praised the museum’s unique presentation, design and production excellence, and community impact. Instead of focusing on the poet’s life and literature in a literal way, the development team created an unexpected and participatory experience - a more emotional approach in which inspiration is prioritized over information, leaving room for the visitor’s own imagination. The 530-square meter exhibition, housed in a historic 19th century farm, invites visitors to work with their hands and tactile, informative materials. Each installation consists of a little game that subtly refers to Rainis’s life or literary heritage. At the start of the exhibition,
each visitor spins a big wooden wheel and receives a small wooden ball. The ball is a metaphor for the sun that shone upon Tadenava when Rainis lived there as a child. From that point on, the ball plays an integral part in the exhibition and initiates action in each installation. The deliberate lack of digital elements encourages the visitor to see and hear everything that the great Latvian poet experienced in the first years of his life. The use of natural materials adds to the sense of authenticity and organically blends with the peaceful setting of the historic farmstead. The museum’s remote location makes it one of the few points of interest for tourists in the region. Since it reopened its doors in July 2016, visitor numbers multiplied by five compared to the visitor numbers before the remodeling. The new Rainis’ Museum pays homage to a poet with the minimal use of writing. Instead it creates a unique, emotional, but above all poetic experience for the mind and senses.

Gallipoli: The scale of our war â€”
Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Te Papa), Wellington, New Zealand
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement Museum Exhibit, Limited Budget The brilliance of this exhibition, as noted by the Thea Awards Committee, is the emotional connection and ingenious presentation of eight sculpted figures, crafted 2.5 times human scale and in hyperreal detail. They tell the epic story of New Zealandâ€™s commitment to World War I, and its huge cost in human life. The exhibit includes artefacts, full-scale mock-ups, and models with time-lapse projection of battles. Gallipoli: The scale of our war is a collaboration between Te Papa and Weta Workshop. The museum made a bold choice to present the narrative with the eight sculpted figures, crafted with such perfect detail that one can see the sweat on the faces and tears in the eye. The story of the campaign is told through the voices of the personalities, carefully chosen by Te Papa to represent a cross section of actual Gallipoli soldiers, and a nurse. Captured at dramatic moments, they create a powerful emotional link with visitors of all ages. In 1915, New Zealand troops participated in the storming of the beaches of the Gallipoli Peninsula in
what is now Turkey. By the time the tragic battle ended, over 2,700 soldiers had lost their lives. While a relatively small campaign within the context of WWI, the New Zealand commitment, including a Maori contingent, played an important role in fostering a sense of national identity in the years after the war. The ingenious presentation focuses on intimate details - a spoiled can of rations, personal possessions, letters and journals - to support the impact of the giant figures and connect visitors to the horrendous experience and loss of life on Gallipoli. The exhibit is anchored by the astonishing execution of the large-scale figures and the stunning level of detail based on in depth research, down to every pore, every bead of sweat, every microhair around the eyelash so it feels as if they could start blinking. The Thea Committee is using its Special Discretionary category for this project since its opening date falls outside the usual two-year window of eligibility. (The project opened April 18, 2015.)

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE 2018 TEA THEA AWARD RECIPIENTS
Simplicity is the luxury
The island of Gozo, part of the Archipelago of Malta, offers some of the best swimming, snorkelling and diving in the Mediterranean, with its mild climate throughout the year. There are caves to explore, wonderful walks, UNESCO World Heritage sites, dramatic fortifications and the baroque architecture of the Knights of St John, the famous Knights of Malta. Not to mention a vibrant calendar of cultural events from grand opera to lively village festas. Choose Gozo for an authentic Mediterranean experience.
Citadella Visitors Centre —
Gozo Island, Malta
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement Heritage Visitor Center, Limited Budget
Gozo is an island rich in 2,000 years of history, and the design brief for the new Cittadella Visitors’ Centre was to convert the city’s disused stone reservoirs into an experience that would reinforce the historical ties of the buildings, the people and the natural landscape. This visually striking walk-through exhibition has nine multi-language storytelling zones, (as there are no artifacts to display), beginning with a more traditional exhibit experience of information panels, graphics and interactive touchscreens. Then guests arrive at a stone portal where they are greeted by an image of the legendary mythical nymph Calypso, who enticed Ulysses to stay on her island. It opens and guests enter to find themselves on a short audiovisual journey that echoes all of the peoples who have previously come to Gozo, including Phoenicians, Romans, medieval knights, and 19th century bishops. Calypso reappears and guests pass through another portal to the final zone: the Cittadella Show. Using 16 video projectors and 8 projection screens set within the
beautiful stone arches, deep within the high ceiling area of the reservoir, the guests are fully immersed in a 360° audiovisual show that brings the entire journey together in one amazing experience. It is the combination of traditional exhibition techniques, exceptional storytelling and the 360° show finale, set in the unique historical environment that make this project so special. Given the island’s small population of roughly 37,300, the fact that this project has exceeded all expectations and attracted 135,000 visitors in its first six months confirms that this is something out of the ordinary. This project’s design team has developed an overall experience that has even moved some visitors to tears, and others to spontaneous applause. The project was intended to increase tourism - and has done so - while creating a unique and entertaining way to highlight Cittadella’s importance and long history, and the culture and history of the entire island.

Les Carrières de Lumières —
Les Baux de Provence, France
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Immersive Event
This unique, immersive experience, dedicated to the art of painting, is within a vast, ancient quarry in the scenic Les Baux de Provence in the South of France. Visitors are surrounded by giant images projected on the walls, floor and ceiling of the caves. In operation since 1977, Les Carrières de Lumières has been upgraded with state-of-the-art technologies. When visitors enter this vast quarry within the rock of “Val d’Enfer” (the Hell Valley), they’re surrounded by imagery and sound (7,000 square meters of projection area with ceilings up to 18 meters high). The visitor can walk around inside the quarry, totally immersed within this “Cathedral of Images” (ancient name of the place). This living and spectacular exhibition presents
its material in a manner capable of captivating everyone, from the children to the experts. The media delivery system includes 100 video projectors, linked by fiber optics to cover all the visible surfaces and 12-channel surround sound. The current show is dedicated to the Baroque era painters Bosch, Brueghel and Arcimboldo. The present operator (“Culturespaces,” a company dedicated to Museums and Exhibitions) undertook a state-of-the-art upgrade to enhance the experience and operations. Annual visitation is some 580,000. Les Carrières de Lumières is a unique place to present art in a popular and spectacular way.

As part of Montréal’s 375th anniversary celebration, the goal was to create a ticketed attraction that would highlight the architectural intricacy and beauty of the gothic-revival Notre-Dame Basilica.
The ‘architectural narrative’ leads the eye to explore the soaring Gothic elements, illuminated by vivid blues, azures, reds, purple, silver and gold. Accompanied by an orchestral/choral score, the final synthesis of space, color and music create a dramatic and uplifting experience of this sacred space.

3D Live - “Holographic” 3D LED Display Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Innovative Technology
This “Holographic” 3D LED technology, originally developed for Michael Jackson’s “This is It” tour, had its first permanent, themed entertainment installation at California’s Great America, within the “Mass Effect: New Earth” attraction that opened May 2016. The technology is a patented method of assembling an array of 3D LED tiles that can be configured into any size screen and format. The tiles can be arranged in flat, curved and circular screen formats, or seamlessly integrated within scenery, theatrical spaces and mixed reality experiences. The 3D LED system provides superior brightness, more saturated color and truer blacks than projection systems and twice the perceived depth of field over standard 3D projection. Where projected 3D systems provide a viewing angle of 40 degrees, this 3D LED technology produces a viewing angle of 140 degrees. The 3D effect can be viewed with the use of passive polarized glasses which helps control the cost and reduces eye fatigue. Because the polarization is permanently registered within the 3D LED screen module, maintaining critical alignment in the field is not necessary.
The TEA Thea Awards committee recognizes 3D Live’s “holographic” 3D LED technology as a significant evolutionary step to creating large scale 3D presentations for themed and experiential venues. 3D Live’s 3D LED technology solves many of the problems associated with projection-based 3D systems and can be used in venues that would not work using typical 3D projected systems. The interface with live performers,VR and other immersive systems is seamless and powerful as demonstrated in the “Mass Effect: New Earth” attraction. The “Holographic” 3D LED technology is recognized by the Thea Committee as an exemplary technology due to its versatility and innovation. This technology is a promising foundation for the production of ever more compelling and immersive guest experiences.

Jameson Distillery Bow St. —
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Brand Experience
The Jameson Distillery Bow St. occupies the same building where John Jameson founded his original distillery in 1780, and the program utilizes many existing elements of the actual Distillery. The fully guided tour runs approximately 40 minutes, taking guests on a multisensory, interactive, story-driven experience on any of six unique pathways. The Bow St. Experience plunges guests into the history and process that defines Jameson: “Our Story”: At the story table, a digital interactive map tells the history of Jameson. Guests are invited to choose from one of six “artifacts” with embedded RFID chips that, when touched to the table, tell a unique story from six different perspectives. “Our Process”: The Jameson Whiskey production process, from start to finish, is told through a 3-D digital projection mapping show. The Story Table invites guests to touch, smell and taste the ingredients – the grains, the raw distillate and the various woods – that combine to give Jameson its popular taste.
“Our Taste”: Guests are invited to participate in a taste test in which Jameson is compared side-by-side with the leading Scotch (Johnnie Walker) and American (Jack Daniels) whiskies. Whiskey Shakers: guests are provided all the professional bar tools and ingredients in a ninety-minute hands-on mixology course. The experience ends with guests visiting an actual maturation warehouse where a cask of Jameson is tapped and the tasting begins. Whiskey Tasters: guests blend their own whiskey and get to take it home in a bottle featuring their name on the logo. Jameson Distillery Bow St., in addition to very effectively communicating the Jameson brand and story, blends a variety of highly effective methods in its storytelling. State-of-the-art digital, unique interactive elements, taste, touch, smell, and actual hands-on participatory experiences are combined in an extraordinary manner, creating a delightful and memorable Brand Experience.

Sleep No More — Shanghai, China Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement Connected Immersion Theater
The Thea Awards Committee found that Sleep No More Shanghai deserves special praise for its adaptation for Chinese audiences; maintaining a successful operational model for distributed performance; working closely with its Chinese partner to get audience specifics right; and in selecting and operating the right venue.
Sleep No More took Broadway by storm in 2011 with a unique show format that allowed the audience to go where they wanted, when they wanted, as voyeurs in a creative, interactive, distributed performance of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. Sleep No More Shanghai has reimagined this pioneering, immersive show, set in 1930s Shanghai. It is the first collaboration between Punchdrunk, the original creators, and Shanghai Media Group (SMG). The visceral, tactile and darkly cinematic telling of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy, Macbeth, spans five floors of a vast, specially constructed building in the Jing’An district of the city. It begins with the audience opening the performance, participants from the start as they don
masks and take the role of hotel guests. They can then choose where they go - ultimately exploring over 90 rooms. The evocative era’s opulence and austerity have been meticulously created in rich detail. Each room contains authentic artifacts and props, and there is even a bustling street market complete with dimly lit alleyways. The audience can peep behind faded gold picture frames and discover secret messages, while other clues to the unfolding narrative could lie inside a cast member’s breast pocket or silk clutch purse - all of them adding to the exquisite, haunting dance and performance of 25+ players. Punchdrunk International took on a monumental task in re-imagining this hit show for China, working closely with SMG. Sleep No More Shanghai is full of props and artifacts that all had to be re-written for 1930s China references. Key to its success was understanding the audience and where it needed to be revised. The production opened on 14th December 2016 and is currently ranked the third longest-running theatrical production in Shanghai.

Chimelong Ocean Kingdom’s Journey of Lights Parade — Zhuhai City, China Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Live Show
The TEA Thea Awards Committee noted these hallmarks of the project: • Creative staging and production. The lands of Ocean Kingdom are celebrated with eight parade units, two carts, and one wagon, supported by 75 performers in a 35-minute color-changing, illuminated show, all set to an original soundtrack. • Each unit creates its own 90-second story-driven scene, complete with its own variation on the musical theme, “Celebrate Tonight.” • Dazzlingly beautiful, blazing on a grand scale with over one million color changing LEDs. • Technically stunning as all one million lights are programmed, synchronized and color controlled by 850 total DMX Universes across 120 CueServer playback systems. This allows every light in the parade to change colors at the same moment, achieving technical sophistication and synchronized color changes unimaginable only a few years ago. • The parade route is long, about .8 kilometer or 1/2 mile. What’s important is that each guest, no matter
where they are standing, receives about 35 minutes of show. The Journey of Lights Parade at Chimelong Ocean Kingdom signals a giant leap forward of technical and creative possibilities in the creation of mobile nighttime spectaculars. This is combined with the highest level of visual imagination and design, executed with theatrical flair and showmanship at virtually every level. The thematic sculptural and animation effects of the floats and the imaginative design of the costumes wonderfully celebrate the thematic zones of the surrounding theme park, bringing the characters and worlds of Chimelong Ocean Kingdom to life while creating a perfect finale to the day-long visit. This is a stunning combination of world-class technical and creative excellence. The Journey of Lights Parade takes the art and technology of mobile nighttime spectaculars to a new world standard of excellence.

Frozen Ever After —
Norway Pavilion, Epcot, Walt Disney World Resort, Orlando, FL, USA
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Attraction Reimagining
The immersive journey of Frozen Ever After is the first dark ride encounter based on the world and characters of Disney’s animated film “Frozen.” Open since June 21, 2016, it features scenes and characters inspired by Disney’s 2013 animated film “Frozen” as well as the 2015 animated short, “Frozen Fever.” This imaginative new storytelling experience is delivered with elegance, grace and beauty, using each twist, turn and backward falling moment to full potential. Newgeneration Audio-Animatronics® figures plus projection, special effects, scenic design and soundscape/musical score all blend seamlessly to surround guests as they float through the world of “Frozen.”
Frozen Ever After was designed to seamlessly integrate with the same boat vehicles (and a slightly modified track layout) of the former Maelstrom attraction in the Norway pavilion at Epcot® Theme Park, in the park’s World Showcase. The elegant coupling of the existing ride layout with the beautiful new story experience combine to create “goose-bump” thrills and excitement for the guests. It was designed and executed with such art and precision that the new attraction feels purpose-built. Guests are immersed in a delightful and well rendered three-dimensional world. The Thea Awards Committee praised Frozen Ever After for impressive production values and execution, emotional resonance and guest impact.

Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! — Disney California Adventure, Disneyland Resort, Anaheim, CA, USA
Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Attraction Reimagining
This exhilarating new experience at Disney California Adventure® Park is based on the “Guardians of the Galaxy” film franchise. Disney Imagineers met the challenge by creating a thrilling, immersive adventure, leveraging what people love about “Guardians” and bringing the popular movies authentically to life. Guardians of the Galaxy - Mission: BREAKOUT! was designed around a pre-existing ride system, guest flow and facility layout, re-imagined using the popular characters (and actors), environments and lore from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise. “The Collector” (aka Taneleer Tivan, played with style by Benicio Del Toro) has brought his traveling exhibit to Earth, and The Guardians of the Galaxy are among his most prized possessions. The Guardians do not take well to being part of a live exhibit, and while they are complaining, Rocket devises an escape plan and recruits the audience. The environment leverages the unique production design and character roles from the film creatives. The entire building was reimagined as Tivan’s Collection, with the exterior meant to resemble an intergalactic fortress. Inside, guests are greeted by Tivan (Del Toro). Hundreds of props and items in the lobby and throughout the preshow are a fan’s dream. When the ride (Gantry) portion starts, a silhouette of Rocket pops up on top, unplugs a wire, and plugs in a cassette player to start the rock and roll music that powers the experience. The gantry continues to move up and down, stopping multiple times to open the doors, showing views of Rocket-induced chaos.
From exterior to props to new ride programming, the flow through authentically integrates the Guardians mythology. The decision to amplify a small section of the first film – “The Collector” – gives fans a fun, recognizable storyline. Strategically selecting Rocket, a genetically engineered raccoon, as the Audio-Animatronics® character to help drive the pre-show, is brilliant and wellexecuted. Linking 1970s and early 1980s soundtrack selections (like ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot’) to the various ride programs also connects guests emotionally to the experience. This expertly crafted attraction has won over even the most skeptical fans.

DreamWorks Animation Zone at MOTIONGATE™ Dubai — Dubai Parks and Resorts, UAE Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Theme Park Land
The DreamWorks Animation Zone at MOTIONGATE™ Dubai is an indoor land in the park featuring sublands focusing on DreamWorks animated intellectual properties (IP), immersing guests into “Shrek,” “How to Train Your Dragon,” “Madagascar” and “Kung Fu Panda.” The exterior of the building/land is representative of the DreamWorks logo and has static characters from DreamWorks films for photo ops. Just inside is the Fountain of Dreams rotunda, with bronze sculptures of the featured DreamWorks characters. Adjacent to the rotunda is the main DreamWorks Store. Each zone is highly themed with excellent theatrical lighting, audio, immersive environments, strong character graphics (the Madagascar area is of particular note in this category) and moments of discovery. Major attractions within the zone include: • Dragon Gliders: This roller coaster uses the ride system to great effect, passing custom CGI scenes from “How to Train Your Dragon,” dimensional scenes with animatronics, and bursting out into the enclosed area development for a dragon’s-eye-view of the themed land below. • Shrek’s Merry Fairy Tale Journey: An epic-scale, trackless ride through a retelling of the first Shrek motion picture. • Madagascar Mad Pursuit!: An indoor launch coaster in the dark • Kung Fu Panda: Unstoppable Awesomeness: Multiplatform, high-capacity 4D simulator theater. Expertly designed, well crafted, cleverly integrated, and overall high quality of delivery make the DreamWorks “box” a standout at MOTIONGATE™ Dubai. The climate-controlled environment is a welcome addition
to the park. The mix of highly-themed environments and intellectual properties, along with something for everyone to do in terms of attractions, make the DreamWorks zone feel like a theme park-within-a-theme park. Throughout the zone, the sense of immersion, lighting, graphics, audio, and overall integration into the facility create a world-class experience and make it a standout at MOTIONGATE™ Dubai.

Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture — Washington, DC, USA Thea Award For Outstanding Achievement - Museum
Taking its place in Washington, DC on the iconic National Mall, the newest Smithsonian museum opened September 24, 2016, and has welcomed more than one million visitors to date. The Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life in all aspects, from a new perspective. Like an exquisite sculpture, the elegant bronze 400,000 square foot building includes 12 inaugural exhibitions and 37,000 treasured artifacts on three separate floors. NMAAHC is a magnificent example of excellence in dimensional storytelling, by unfolding the African American experience in a beautifully creative and emotionally stirring way. The primary spirit behind the architecture is one of “praise,” as the form of the building suggests upward movement. The interior floor plan takes visitors from the darkest struggles for freedom in the lower History Gallery, rising to the third floor, which displays the spectacular achievements made as free
Americans, including examples in science, architecture, entertainment, music, art and sports. This is not a story of people brought down, but of a people that overcame tremendous challenges and obstacles, and helped to transform a country. A 360-degree virtual tour is available, augmenting the modern museum experience by making its exhibits available worldwide. Collection highlights include Nat Turner’s original Bible, a segregation era Southern Railway car, the slavery block, Louis Armstrong’s trumpet, Michael Jackson’s fedora, and an extensive display of photography and artwork, displayed in a variety of innovative ways, from touchscreens to interactive videos inside props and recreated sets. Visitors to the museum may experience moments of introspection and the pain of the past. But they will also embrace stories of resilience, joy, hope, inspiration and commitment, from lessons in history.
