This winter, zoo patrons will be able to venture through the Lumina Night Walk, a 1.5-km light show — expected to take 45 to 60 minutes to navigate — complete with projections, storytelling, music, sound and other multimedia effects.
The show will transport participants to a hopeful, fantastical rendition of the year 2099, "a time when humans and nature have learned to live in harmony." (Assuming we don't destroy the planet by then.)
The installation, named Terra Lumina: An Enchanted Night Walk Into A Bright Future, is a project from Montreal-based studio Moment Factory, which has created similar custom lights walks in places like Singapore, Japan, Whistler, Kingston and Mont Tremblant.
Yes! We saw it last year and loved it. Did Nova Lumina for second time earlier this week and I know want to plan vacations to take in all 10 of these Night Walk Light Shows!https://t.co/gMozhxA2Oe— Ted Kouri (@tedkouri) August 29, 2019
Toronto Zoo CEO Dolf DeJong said in a press release that the Lumina brand meshes well with the zoo's aim to "touch hearts by creating magical moments that inspire guests to make positive change to help the environment."
Dates are currently unannounced, but tickets are due to go on sale sometime next month.
