The Pacific Science Center is always encouraging visitors to “be curious.” There is perhaps no better opportunity to indulge your curiosity than their new virtual reality experiences. “What is Reality?” is a collection of frequently changing experiences that combines tech, art and storytelling to challenge visitors’ senses of what is real. Involving all five senses, these “What is Reality?” will encourage you to see the world, and your reality in a whole new way.
Check out the two current experiences:
Wonderfall: Tale of Two Realms:
Hyperspace, Pacific Science Center’s startup in residence, is excited to offer Wonderfall: Tale of Two Realms- the beta version of the first 15 minutes of their large scale walk-through adventure. Feel the wind on your face, take in the smells, and even touch your surroundings as you race to save an ancient world. Tours are available from 2-4 daily, and you can get a feel of the full experience Fridays through Sundays from 5:30 to 10:30pm. Click here to reserve your tickets.
