Smile because it’s happening!
The whimsical works of beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss have transcended from page to film and now its final form — a cross-continental immersive exhibit. Please both your eyes and heart as you step into the wonderful world of the Dr. Seuss Experience at the George R. Brown Convention Center. [Featured image: @katrindell]
Each room offers a different, colorful and enticing experience, dedicated to nine different Dr. Seuss creations, including the world-famous: How The Grinch Stole Christmas!, Horton Hears a Who! and The Lorax.
You are encouraged to rhyme your way around one of the rooms, uncovering hidden experiences as you rummage, according to the clues, and then move on to the next Seuss-themed surprise.
You can immerse yourself in the world of Dr. Seuss completely and experience it from every angle, with mirrors lining the walls of some rooms to toy with your spatial awareness, as you move from one world to another. There is even a floor to ceiling balloon maze for you to walk through – not something you’d do every day!
The CEO of the company Kilburn, who has created the experience alongside Dr. Seuss Enterprises, told AP news that the installation is designed to encourage children to read and to encourage healthy, social attitudes amongst youngsters. So, whilst meeting their favourite members of the Dr. Seuss entourage, kids can hopefully take a positive message from the experience.
Experience Seuss have shared this video, which gives us glimpse inside of the venue and lets people know what to expect:
According to the organizers, you can anticipate spending an hour or so in this magical universe but you will be the envy of your Instagram followers for even longer! You can grab yourself some souvenirs at their sizeable gift shop, too!
Experience Seuss will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center from May 15 – August 15. Tickets go on sale this week, April 17. Prices haven’t yet been released.
