Fulfill the ultimate dream of flying

Humans have always wanted to fly–a new experience at The Wild Center in delivering just that.


This year, we invite visitors to don a pair of Oculus Rift 3D goggles, strap themselves in on the platform, and flap their arms as if they’re wings as they fly through a series of natural virtual settings. Fly like a bird: take to the sky, arms outstretched, with the power and innate grace of the avian masters. The Birdly® is something you need to try at least once in your life.
The powerful interplay of both highly-sophisticated hard- and software puts you in control of the storyline and allows you to intuitively explore different environments. Birdly® takes you to exotic destinations and fantastic imaginary worlds while stimulating all your senses and leaving a lasting impression that makes you want more. Follow and awaken your dreams with Birdly®

What People Are Saying

"… the Birdly experience is beautiful and extremely vivid. It is also the first one in which I felt like my whole body had been transported into the world I was in at that moment. And it all clicked when I turned my head to the side and saw my wings, covered in brown and black feathers."
-Edgar Alvarez, Engadget
"As I tilt my wings down, the wind rushes my face and I felt that un-mistakable drop in my stomach. I glance to my right, catching a glimpse of my brown feathers, as I can feel my arms tire."
Wall Street Journal
“Birdly® is hands-down the best VR experience yet.”
“For two minutes, I lived the dream of flight. And it was convincing enough that I was annoyed to have to use my own feet to walk four blocks to my next SWSW appointment.”
Yahoo TECH
“If you ever get the chance to experience Birdly®, don’t pass it up.”
“Many of us have at some point in our lives dreamt of flying. Birdly® is the closest I’ve ever come to feeling that way… To say Birdly® is convincing is to short-change its effect.”
