What to expect on your day at the zoo
Experience an exciting day at the Hologram Zoo with activities that you and your family can enjoy!
Begin your adventure with the 20-metre holographic tunnel experience where you traverse five different animal’s habitats. The animals will come out of the walls and float right in front of you, so close in fact, that you can reach out and have your hand pass right through them! It is a magical, immersive experience that is not to be missed.
Once you have completed one of your tunnel walks, you will walk over to the fenced holographic enclosures where the animals project from the ground below you. There are 10 fenced animals to see up close in the holographic enclosures and you will see 2 fenced animals per walk through. This is a fascinating exhibit, as you get to see the animals from a perspective that not many people get to experience.
From the enclosures, you will head over to the new holographic skyroof experience where you will shrink down to the size of an ant and watch as the animals walk across the glass above you. There are five skyroof experiences in total, so you will see one sky roof animal per walk through. This experience is wonderful, as the animals are much larger than their real life counterparts.
Once you have finished the skyroof, you will be back at the tunnel to complete your second circuit. Once you have finished your experience, you can marvel at the holographic bridge, where giant animals appear before you at a never before seen scale. The bridge chooses 4 animals to showcase per day, so you will see new creatures every visit!
Hungry? Visit the Rainforest Restaurant where you can sit, relax and enjoy the holographic rainforest creatures. You will see chameleons and even toucans interacting in the environment. The restaurant also has gluten free and vegan options available.
