“It’s an honour to have been selected by FoST to present Birdly alongside some of the best in immersive media,” says Tom Rooney, director of sales & marketing for Birdly VR. “We’ve received amazing feedback on Jurassic Flight since its release last fall, and we’re excited to give more people the opportunity to try it.”

Among other US venues already offering Jurassic Flight is the Museum of Natural History & Science in Cincinnati. The virtual reality experience is featured in the museum’s revamped dinosaur hall. By sitting astride the BirdlyVR platform, visitors can take to prehistoric skies and interact with dinosaurs.
