The Safari Experience – Philadelphia Zoo
Ever wonder what it’s like on safari in Kenya? Designed and produced by BPI “The Safari Experience” follows the adventures of a young video blogger in this multi-screen immersive theater. The show puts visitors in the middle of a Kenyan safari.
The audience is seated alongside a campsite on a starlit night. Up before dawn, a young video blogger shares her unbridled enthusiasm for the day to come. The Kenyan plains come to life on a massive center screen as silhouettes and images are projected on the campsite tent and surrounding walls. Lion cubs tumble and play. Leopards lounge in trees in the midday heat. Elephants protectively circle their young. Thousands of flamingos take flight. And as the sun sets, a hot air balloon carries her high above the plains.
Upon returning to Philadelphia, she reminisces about the challenges these magnificent animals face in the wild. For her the land, the people, and the amazing wildlife was an adventure of a lifetime! The BPI theater program uses a combination of original studio green screen production and stock video.
