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.

VR goggles and moving seats allow visitors to witness how millions of free-roaming animals such as wildebeests, zebras and antelopes make their way through the peaks and perils of Africa’s savanna terrain, from the Maasai Mara River in Kenya to the majestic landscape of Tanzania’s Serengeti, in search for a better life across the animal kingdom.
