Lynton V Harris pitches Sharknado attraction concept on Network 10 reality show

Lynton V Harris pitches Sharknado attraction concept on Network 10 reality show
May 8, 2016

Attractions and entertainment entrepreneur Lynton V Harris will tonight present his concept for the Sharknado Alive experience on Network Ten reality show, Shark Tank.

Australian Harris, who started his career at Wonderland Sydney (Australia’s Wonderland), has been Chairman of The Sudden Impact! Entertainment Company since 1991.

The New York, USA-based business has specialised in developing licensed, often horror-based, attractions around the world and Harris has recently won the rights to create the Sharknado Alive experience, based on the hugely successful Sharknado movies.

Seeking to involve the reality show’s ‘sharks’, Harris is offering the opportunity to become 50% partners in Sharknado Alive.

Shark Tank is an Australian reality competition television series that premiered in February 2015, on Network Ten. Based on the international Dragons' Den and Shark Tank format, it has aspiring entrepreneur-contestants make business presentations to a panel of ‘shark’ investors.

Tonight's first episode of season two has a distinct leisure feel with the Clever Score scoreboard system and Mick Spencer from sports apparel company On The Go Sports also seeking investment.

The show broadcasts at 9pm tonight (Sunday 8th May).
