Flying Solo has worked with numerous productions behind the scenes, providing fabrication, rigging and installation to make sure the shows go off without a hitch!

Legends of Horror - Casa Loma Halloween

Liberty Financial ~ Hit & Run ~ La Rouge Entertainment
Flying Solo adapted a new design to Casa Loma’s Legend of Horror. The new aerial scenarios were co-created with Jamie Holmes and Hit and Run. These multiple aerial scenarios include apparatuses such as the birdcage, the beast & damsels truss, the hanging bathtub girl and the vamp chandelier. The four unique locations created a variety of unique rigging solutions, suspending between trees to a basic static point indoors. The team includes: Diana Lopez Soto, Rebecca Leonard, Aidan Shephard, Matty Armour, Caleb Ford, Sebastian Marziali, Amber Pattison +40 performances, haunted walk Thanks to everyone who made this possible:
