After nearly eight weeks of manufacturing, Lindstrand USA inflated its first audio visual (AV) dome Tuesday at its plant on Parker Road in South Boston before the dome is sent to Orlando, Fla., for use in a laser show event for the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions to be held in November.
According to designer Joey Jones, the sphere size of the dome is 20 meters, and it will hold more than 400 people. The dome takes a full day to assemble.
Lindstrand USA President Angela Lewis said the company has sold and shipped several of these domes worldwide including to Barcelona and Dubai.
The dome was fully inflated by Tuesday afternoon.
The company purchasing the dome is expected to pick it up later this week after Lindstrand gives it a complete test.
