Lightswitch Designs Lighting For Monster Mansion At Six Flags Over Georgia

ATLANTA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Lightswitch designs the lighting for the “Monster Mansion” attraction, which recently opened at Six Flags over Georgia in Atlanta. The attraction produced and designed by Gary Goddard Entertainment (GGE) was a multi-million dollar renovation of the 27 year-old attraction previously called “The Monster Plantation.”

Commenting on the overall design effort Lead Lighting Designer Edward S. Marks, based out of the Los Angeles office explained, “We listened carefully to the concerns and needs of the Creative Director Taylor Jeffs and Art Director Bob Baranick when developing the designs and incorporated their feedback into our design solutions. We also worked closely with the local systems integrator, Entertainment Design Group and Sound Designer Ted King. The design features gear from ETC, Rosco, GAM, TMB and Color Kinetics. From design creation to opening day was roughly 15 weeks. Working with the Six Flags and GGE team headed by producer Barry Kemper and project manager Kirk Powell was a joy.” When asked about the concept for lighting the attraction, Michael Lagrotteria, Associate Lighting Designer on the project responded, “The attraction is very unique in its style and color. We felt the pressure of getting this one just right for the local community. As we learned while working on this, this attraction is a long loved local favorite. We chose to use a lot color and break ups, the goal was to create depth and texture throughout.” 

“The Monster Mansion renovation was an unqualified success,” said Dan Weinberg, Six Flags VP of Entertainment. “The vibrant colors and lighting bring the ride to life. The entire Goddard team is to be commended for creating something truly special for guests of all ages.” This was another project in a list of successful projects Lightswitch have worked on with the GGE team, including the highly successful Glow in the Park Parades. –by CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
