From exhilarating natural wonders to enriching cultural moments and beyond, guests will be immersed in the world’s most extraordinary experiences. Whether that’s on safari, at the bottom of the ocean, in the celestial universe, on top of the world’s highest peaks or inside a visual art exhibition, Illuminarium places visitors inside the story as it unfolds around them. Illuminarium exemplifies a “VR, without the glasses” cinematic experience.
“Through the combination of state-of-the-art technology, including the world’s most advanced laser projection, 3D beamformed audio, LIDAR-based interactivity, in-floor vibrations and scent systems, Illuminarium will transport guests to places they have only dreamed about. Illuminarium is a place that can take you anyplace,” said Calum Pearson, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Illuminarium Las Vegas.
The 36,000-square-foot entertainment complex will open with three epic experiences including WILD: A Safari Experience, SPACE: A Journey to the Moon & Beyond and O’KEEFFE: One Hundred Flowers. Illuminarium will also offer an immersive nightlife experience, Illuminarium After Dark, for adults 21+, as well as a café.
- WILD: A Safari Experience will transport adventure seekers to Africa through on-location cinematic content. From the “Big Five” game animals to the rare silverback mountain gorillas, WILD showcases the beauty and splendor of majestic animals in their native habitats across South Africa, Kenya, Rwanda and Tanzania. Complementing the exotic sights of a safari, visitors will be fully immersed in authentic sounds and scents like never before.
- SPACE: A Journey to the Moon & Beyond will take guests on an exhilarating journey across the universe. SPACE is a giant leap into the unknown, touring guests throughout the solar system, including a technicolor flight through the nebula, an opportunity to personally kick up dust on the moon, observe a futuristic space colony, see planets at an extraordinary scale and weave through an asteroid belt close to Saturn’s rings.
- O’KEEFFE: One Hundred Flowers will take guests on an immersive experience of color, texture, scent and interactivity through the iconic floral paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe, who is known as the ‘Mother of American Modernism.’ Inspired by the best-selling art book, the show brings the beauty of these works to life by amplifying the images on an unprecedented scale, to create a stimulating art experience that transports audiences directly into living paintings.
- Illuminarium After Dark: Nightlife Reimagined will transform into a 21+ immersive nightlife experience each night after dark where the beauty of Illuminarium’s daytime experience transforms into an adults-only escape. After Dark will feature a full bar with a selection of specialty cocktails and curated eats. Guests can enjoy cocktails in ever-changing, magically immersive settings from the night markets of Tokyo to the beautiful floral gardens of France, to a mysterious crystal cavern and beyond.
Illuminarium Las Vegas will be open daily at 11 a.m. with last entry at 7 p.m. for daytime admission. Evening programming at Illuminarium begins nightly at 8 p.m. for adults 21+.
