“…stunning new laser technology from the wonderful world of Laservision.”

Australia’s Flagstaff Hill and ‘Shipwrecked’ has recently been awarded for the second year running “Victoria’s Best Tourist Attraction” by the Victorian Tourism Board.
The historic maritime park of Flagstaff Hill is located along Victoria’s infamous ‘shipwreck coastline’. In order to enhance tourism, the attraction required a dramatic portrayal of the surrounding coastline and the treachery of the waters which have claimed more than 160 ships.
The solution provided by Laservision included the themed show titled ‘Shipwrecked’, a spectacular in its’ own right! The audience is taken on an outdoor journey through the maritime village to a purpose-designed theatre constructed by Laservision.
The audience looks out of the theatre to experience a 30-minute multimedia light show which incorporates both the historic village and an arsenal of special effects. Both LASER and digital projection are used as the main storytelling elements onto the water screen and created by LASERVISION’s in-house creative team.
‘Shipwrecked’ also includes the use of architectural lighting, artificial rain and wind, surround sound and a 4D-motion base that completes the permanent tourism attraction on the coast of Victoria’s south-west.
Laservision’s state-of-the-art show control system, utilises a proprietary Laservision Digital Data Pump and was introduced as a solution for coordinating all of the time-dependent special effects that are incorporated into the attraction.
