My family and I had a great time yesterday visiting Illuminarium ATL. It’s a new exhibit located in Atlanta and its the latest craze in the city. We went from the Atl beltline to Africa in a snap! With their state-of-the-art technology, my grandson Legend was able to see the most exotic animals from his pint-size view, he absolutely LOVED it! Great experience for the entire family. This is a brand new spot that just opened its doors last week. Once we arrived our tour guide/CEO Alan Greenberg showed us around, its definitely a must-see!
“In WILD, visitors will walk through the theater and feel an elephant walking on-screen in front of them, while Spacewalk will enable them to leave footprints on the surface of the moon. In this light, Illuminarium exemplifies ‘VR, without the glasses’ next generation entertainment that is ideally suited for the post-pandemic world of a return to communal experiences.”
It’s a 30,000 square foot venue that costs over $30 million and it took 4 months to film in Africa. Capturing many exotic animals in their natural habitat, wow! It’s very easy to get tickets and once you visit, you really feel like you’re there without the cost of actually traveling to a real safari. It takes about 60 minutes to see from beginning to end. Inside the venue they also have a cafe, gift shop and at night they have a bar and it rents out for private events. Take a peek at a few snaps from our experience inside and don’t forget to stop by, it’s so much fun!
