Gorilla Trek

Gorilla Trek: A 360° Virtual Reality Experience

Venture into the jungle of Rwanda and observe gorillas in the wild – without ever leaving your seat at the Zoo!

Gorilla Trek: A 360° Ride Film is a virtual reality experience presented in partnership with Immotion. Housed with a message of sustainability inside a giant repurposed shipping container, Gorilla Trek is a VR Theater featuring 12 cinema motion seats on a motion platform. VR goggles and moving seats provide the experience of being delivered via helicopter into Rwanda. A virtual trek 10,000 feet up into the jungle introduces a live-action adventure as users have the opportunity to observe a family group of elusive and endangered mountain gorillas up-close in their natural habitat. Gorilla Trek is presented in partnership with Immotion and narrated by Tara Stoinski, PhD, President and CEO/Chief Scientific Officer of The Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund International, Zoo Atlanta’s longtime partner in gorilla conservation.
