When TEC received an invitation for Orbi’s launch event, we were excited to attend, and we were not disappointed.

Located in Dubai’s MIrdif City Centre, Orbi was jointly developed by SEGA Holdings and BBC Earth, and is set to be “the first supercharged indoor nature experience in the Middle East”. Originating in Japan, this experimental visitor attraction was launched by Majid Al Futtaim Leisure and Entertainment in May this year.

With the help of cutting-edge technology, Orbi’s twelve nature zones are designed to plunge visitors into the mysterious world of nature that would otherwise be impossible to experience. This is a “multi-sensory edutainment experience” like no other, where visitors are invited to explore the planet via their custom-built theatre, innovative AV technology and interactive walk-through touchpoints.

Orbi’s main attraction is the Earth Theatre, with its 35m wide screen, and a powerful 3D sound system that brings the natural world to life through its ground-breaking technology.

The entire Orbi can accommodate up to 1200 people, with the Earth Theatre being able to take 251 people (including one wheelchair), and the Mountain Gorilla theatre for 61 people. These theatres are available for private hire as well, and have pre-function areas.
