Chicago Scenic Studios recently worked with Massachusetts-based, live-action entertainment firm 5 Wits Production, Inc. to help build castles for two of their 1,200-square-foot hands-on adventure experiences. Since the 5 Wits team had such specific specifications on the materials and construction techniques they wanted, the Chicago Scenic team approached the projects in a different way than we might otherwise have done. This, in turn, led to new and innovative ideas on how to produce this project and expanded Chicago Scenic’s fabrication versatility.
Under the design leadership of 5 Wits, Chicago Scenic built the scenery for their attraction’s three major rooms—the Bell Tower, Dungeon, and Throne Room—as well as a crawl space; the Library entryway; and select props. The two Drago’s Castle immersive adventures Chicago Scenic helped produce are now entertaining audiences in Albany and Buffalo, New York.02.2017 back to Environments
