The Pittsburgh Zoo &  Aquarium embarks on an all-new interactive experience: the Virtual Reality (VR) Theater.

Let fully immersive technology transport you from the Zoo to locations around the world. This 360 degree VR film, combined with motion platform seating, shares a once-in-a-lifetime experience of animals in their natural habitat. Partnering with educational entertainment provider Immotion, VR Theater allows you to witness the behaviors of incredible animals up close.

  • Gorilla Trek (World of Discovery)
  • The Great Migration (Worlds of Discovery)
  • Flight of the Mantas (Aquarium)
  • Shark Dive (Aquarium)

Schedule varies. Please contact the Zoo for days that VR will be running.
