Immersive King Tut Toronto is now open to the public starting today, August 10, 2022 at 1 Yonge Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This immersive experience dives into the discovery of the tomb of King Tut 100 years ago and as a way to commemorate this historic discovery, Lighthouse Immersive launched the Immersive King Tut experience.
Background INFO: From the media release that I received, here is a description of how they describe this Immersive King Tut experience, “Toronto-based Lighthouse Immersive, in partnership with UEG, IFFDA and under the auspices of the Egyptian Council for Tourism Affairs, IMMERSIVE KING TUT: MAGIC JOURNEY TO THE LIGHT opens to the public August 10th and is being launched to commemorate the 100th anniversary of archeologist Howard Carter’s discovery of the tomb of the legendary “boy king” in November 1922.”
“This all-new experience uses stunning visuals to tell the story of the Amduat, an important ancient Egyptian funerary text, thought to be the oldest known illustrated story in human history, that was depicted on the tombs of pharaohs. State-of-the-art video mapping and ground-breaking animation bring to life the story of King Tut’s passage into the afterlife as he escorts the sun through the underworld each night to rise again victoriously each morning. Mexico City-based Cocolab created the fantastical animations integrating breathtaking images acquired by UEG and IFFDA through their 30-year history of presenting spectacular touring exhibitions including those honoring King Tut and ancient Egyptian civilization.”
Last night, my guest and I were invited to the VIP Reception to check out this immersive experience. It was a fun night with food, drinks and it’s so nice to see people in-person!
