In what may be an unprecedented achievement, Visual Terrain announces that three of its recent projects were awarded 2003 THEAs for Outstanding Achievement from the Themed Entertainment Association. The Templo del Fuego at Universal’s Port Aventura in Costa Daurada, Spain, was awarded the THEA for Outstanding Achievement, Attraction; Tomb Raider: The Ride at Paramount’s Kings Island outside Cincinnati, OH, was honored with a THEA for Outstanding Achievement, Attraction; and the Cerritos Millennium Library in Cerritos, CA, won a THEA for Outstanding Achievement, Library.

"We are so thankful to have been part of the design teams for such creative projects," says Lisa Passamonte Green, principal of Visual Terrain. "It is always nice to have one project recognized, but to score a hat trick in one year makes us especially proud."
