Visitors to Pittsburgh Zoo are transported to the mountains of Africa in a Brand New VR Experience Centre

Pittsburgh Zoo became the second zoo in the USA to install the brand new Gorilla Trek immersive attraction from Immotion. Visitors were literally transported to the mountains of Africa as they boarded their virtual reality motion platform seats.

The Gorilla Trek movie, filmed exclusively by the Immotion team, takes visitors on a journey deep into the jungles of Africa. Working with the Dian Fossey Foundation, the Immotion filmmakers were able to capture the magic of a troop of gorillas in their natural habitat. The film even captures a battle for supremacy as a young pretender challenges the leader for the top position. Using immersive technology, visitors get the opportunity to step into another world, the home of these amazing mountain gorillas.

Rod Findley – Group Commercial Director, Immotion Group plc said: “We are very pleased to have opened our Gorilla Trek VR Theater at Pittsburgh Zoo this weekend. The guest response to our 24-seat immersive theater has been tremendous.”
