Get ready for a mindblowing experience this winter in Scarborough. The Toronto Zoo has announced the theme of the immersive Lumina Night Walk that will light up December Nights where you can enjoy an immersive experience along a 1.5 km walking path that travels into the future and back.
Created by Moment Factory, who is credited with the creation of world-class experiences like Rainforest Lumina at the Singapore Zoo and Island Lumina in Iojima, Japan, Lumina Night Walk will reflect a different way of seeing the Earth — through an optimistic lens that imagines a brighter future for all those who call it home.
Called Terra Lumina: An Enchanted Night Walk Into A Bright Future, Terra Lumina takes visitors on a journey through a luminous vision of our planet’s future. Passing through a portal, travelers will be transported to a fantastical vision of the year 2099, a time when humans have learned to live in harmony with nature, protecting our planet and the wildlife that calls it home.
Created specifically for the Toronto Zoo, Terra Lumina creates positive moments of connection. Vibrant lighting, multimedia effects, animated projections, inspiring storytelling, and an original score conjure an immersive future world that shares a message of hope for a brighter tomorrow.
The symbol of Terra Lumina draws together the narrative threads of the experience to illustrate its storytelling arc and themes. It features the twilight portal people pass through to access the adventure, and what they will find there — the metaphorical seeds of change, the wisdom of future wildlife — and two stylized markings that express the change of perspective that happens during their passage through this enchanted world.
Moment Factory also creates Lumina Borealis in Kingston,Vallea Lumina in Whistler,and experiences in multiple locations in Quebec that is created with extremely dexterous use of interactive displays, light, sound, scenography, music and video projection.
