Sarner was approached by Tusenfryd, owners of the largest theme park in Norway. Located just outside Oslo, Tusenfryd commissioned Sarner to design and deliver a unique custom-built ride that would appeal to families of all ages.
Vikinglandet is based on the story of Liev Erickson’s journey across the Atlantic. The ride is housed inside a cave that was specifically blasted for the attraction. Visitors enter the cave through a tunnel where they discover a full scale Viking longship. The 200-seat simulator takes visitors through storms, attacks by pirates, a sea monster, battleships and Gods in a realistic journey helped along with audio-visual and special effects, until they eventually reach the Americas.
Sarner utilised a range of mechanical, projection and special effects to create the Vikinglandet experience – a unique and immersive ride that has lasted the test of time.
