From exhilarating natural wonders to enriching cultural moments and beyond, Illuminarium delivers a sensory experience like no other by fully immersing you in the world’s most extraordinary experiences.
The attraction is brought to life through an unprecedented blend of 4K laser projection providing guests a connected and shared entertainment journey. Audio beams create a unique and precise sound experience for each individual. In-floor haptics produce realistic sensations for visitors, such as the ground-shaking with an elephant’s stomp or leaving a footprint on the moon as you walk. The experience even has scent, adding authentic enhancement to the immersive experience. Our cinematic immersion will place you into the middle of the narrative unfolding around you. This is achieved without wearable hardware of any kind - this is not a 3D or 4D experience.
Strobe effects, gentle floor vibration, immersive sound, and realistic & responsive projection are all part of the experience, but nothing is intended to be frightening or disorienting. The intensity of the various elements will depend on the featured spectacle.
The attraction experience takes place completely indoors.
We estimate your experience inside the attraction will last approximately 45-60 minutes.
Within the attraction, you can move around the experience at your leisure and have free range throughout. We encourage you to walk around to experience all of the elements, however there is limited seating available if desired. The experience takes place in a space of approximately 10,000 square feet – from end to end it is approximately 220 feet.
The shows are limited engagements and will change frequently. Seasonal experiences may also be offered throughout the year. We encourage guests to follow us on social media for announcements.
