If you go down to the woods today, you might encounter enchanted illuminated creatures. That is if you go to Moment Factory’s latest epic immersive experience in Canada at Fort Henry. Here, Culture Trip steps inside a frozen landscape of wondrous festive spirit that all the family can enjoy.
Remember how magical winter used to be? Playing in the snow and exploring familiar places with new adventure. Well, that magic has found its way back into our lives with Moment Factory’s Lumina Borealis.
Continuing their celebrated Lumina night walks series, Moment Factory have created a magical immersive night tour of Kingston’s majestic Fort Henry located at the mouth of the St Lawrence River.
As with previous projects, which have revealed the nocturnal secrets of a wild zoo along a 1.5 km trail of light projections, made stars fall from the sky in Chandler and brought the mythical fairy creatures of Coaticook’s Canyon to life, Lumina Borealis is a mystical outdoor walking trail that will make your winter fantasies a reality.
On the 1 km trail, which takes around 45 minutes to an hour to walk, you’ll meander through Iceberg Alley, encounter a winter forest where woodland creatures live, keep warm by a magical storytelling fire, use your best singing voice to spark the Northern Lights and unlock hidden secrets through a giant interactive game.
Just like their illuminated video projection-mapping experience, Aura at Montreal’s Notre-Dame Basilica, Moment Factory will immerse up to 225 visitors at a time in a fantastical and luminous spectacle.
Enhancing the natural environment, whether it be ancient forests or historical sites, Moment Factory spur the imagination of visitors with their masterful and innovative use of interactive technology to create a truly unique experience.
So wrap up warm for a night of enchanted discovery.
Lumina Borealis is at Fort Henry National Historic Site of Canada, 1 Fort Henry Drive, Kingston, ON, K7K 5G8 until February 19, 2018. Timed ticketed entry.
The pathway of Lumina Borealis can accommodate mobility aids such as all-terrain wheelchairs. Check weather conditions before visiting as this can affect accessibility.
