The Swiss league post-season has been underway for most of March, and SC Bern is one win from advancing to the NLA final. Back when the post-season got underway, though, Bern unveiled a 3D ice show that’s one of the best we’ve ever seen, and easily rivals anything that’s ever been shown in the NHL.

Dragons? Check. Sharks? Check. Paddling an ice floe to safety? You bet, and that’s all before the Star Wars-esque battle breaks out. The show starts around the 57-second mark of the video below. Check it out:

The transition from dragons to sharks to laser battle is almost seamless, and the entire show, plus the acting job done by the skater, really put this above most 3D shows we’ve seen before. The use of an actual skater is a nice touch, and it adds a cool element to the show that few have incorporated before.

With Bern up 3-1 in their semi-final series against HC Davos, there’s a pretty good chance Bern is going to be heading to the final. And if their pre-game ceremony from their first home game of the 2016 post-season is any indication, we can’t wait to see what Bern will have up their sleeve when a championship is on the line.
