Lions 360 roars into Rundle Mall thanks to virtual reality

Imagine being within clawing range of an African Lion right in the heart of Rundle Mall.

This weekend, step out of the mall and into the lion’s den using exciting new virtual reality technology to take a peek into Monarto Zoo’s jaw-dropping new experience, Lions 360 fed to you by Electranet.

For two days only, take a break from your shopping and experience a taste of Africa in the hearth of Rundle Mall.

Thanks to Lateral Vision and Untethered Virtual Reality, you’ll be able to use cutting-edge technology to transport yourself from the bustling mall into Monarto Zoo’s 10 hectare lion exhibit and come nose-to-nose with one of Australia’s largest lion prides.

Launched in November, Lions 360 fed to you by ElectraNet is a truly hair-raising experience with visitors able to enter a cage and get closer than ever before to Monarto Zoo’s amazing lions.

The only experience of its kind in Australia, visitors can take the walk of the brave through a tunnel and emerge in the heart of the lions’ den, in a rare opportunity to get up close and personal with the king of the jungle.

With as few as 20,000 Lions remaining in the wild, Lions 360 will help us continue our work as a conservation charity raising awareness for this species.

Modelled on the popular Great White Shark diving experience, Lions 360 is a jaw-dropping, absolutely safe encounter, which is unique to the Murraylands region.

You’ll find our virtual reality Lions 360 station at the front of Dymocks, so roar into the mall get up close and personal with Africa’s most impressive predator.

Race into Rundle Mall this Friday, 19 January, and Saturday, 20 January, to take a test-run of Lions 360 for yourself.

Better still, experience the real-deal and secure your spot now on this popular experience.
