How can Rianfil help you?


We can inform you about what illusion options there are for the kind of magic effect that you have in mind. You will get a report that gives you all the options, so that you get a very clear picture and know for sure that you make the right decission. We can provide construction plans (in 3D) so that you can build locally, or we can build for you.

After chosing the illusion(s) to be used we will make 3D designs that give you an impression of size, shape and colours.

Building plans

Because the designs are made in 3D they are already made in correct size and can be completed with measurements for the building team. The plans can be used in autocad and Sketchup.

Rianfil has connections all over the world. Depending on where the illusions are needed we can help you with finding a company nearby that can make them for you. Or you let Rianfil arrange the construction for you.

The mechanics of animatronics can be hidden from view by an optical illusion.

Flowers can grow by magic, open up and swallow the darkride vehicle.

A summer scene can visually change into a winter scene.

Dragons can fly around without seeing the cable because they don’t hang on cables.
