the crane dance

SCHEMATIC | PROJECT DEVELOPMENT | CONSTRUCTION ADMINISTRATION | PRODUCTION 

Billed as the largest animatronic robots in the world, the dancing cranes rise to a height of 90 feet from a man-made island in the channel between Universal Studios and the mainland. They dance, fall in love, and transform from mechanical cranes with 40-foot wings of water into ‘real’ digital cranes that bless the guests with love, long-life, and good fortune.

The Crane Dance is a recipient of the Themed Entertainment Award for Best Attraction.

Members of hiddenlemons worked with Entertainment Design Corporation in the roles of Art Director and Supervising Art Director.
