We’re very excited to announce that our virtual reality experience, Truth Traveler, is now open! Our guests will now have the opportunity to experience “A Flood of Reality,” an incredible, high-tech virtual reality show when they visit with us. Learn more about this experience below.
State-of-the-art, commercial-grade virtual reality headsets work together with special-effects motion seats that move, vibrate, and interact with guests as they travel back in time 4,350 years to see Noah and his crew as they build the Ark and load the animals. Ride along in the Ark as the flood dramatically begins and take in the stunning rainbow at the end of the year-long flood. This experience requires a paid ticket, separate from general admission.
The new VR building hosts 12 separate bays, which hold four seats each. Each seat is a custom-made MX4D Motion EFX Experience seat (manufactured in California). These seats aren’t just your average chair—they add wind blasts, full motion, and even scents (yes, scents!) that coordinate with what is seen through the VR headset—you’ll really feel like you’re flying as you journey back in time with P.O.D, your lively robot guide!
It’s a fully immersive experience with the quality you’d expect at Disney World or Universal Studios, but with a very different message—one centered on the truth of God’s Word and the gospel of Jesus Christ (which is powerfully presented at the end of the production by a holographic Ken Ham).
Our founder and CEO, Ken Ham, recently went behind the scenes of Truth Traveler with Ben, our vice president for audio/visual serivces, to give you a sneak peek of this new experience. Learn more in the video below.
God has enabled us to build this stunning experience through one of our supporters who had a burden to use VR to teach people the truth of God’s Word and the gospel. This new experience will truly help guests understand the reality of the Ark and the flood. It’s the perfect complement to the Ark Encounter attraction.
Start planning your trip to the Ark Encounter today. When you arrive, be sure to purchase your timed ticket for “A Flood of Reality” early as this experience is sure to be popular. And, remember, for all of 2020, children ten and under receive free admission!
