'Splinter-Dimensional' AR Experience Coming to Toronto's Christie Pits
An augmented reality experience from Luminato Festival and immersive event company Planet Fabulon has landed at Toronto's Christie Pits Park. "Splinter-Dimensional," an interactive installation, will take attendees on a 30-minute scavenger hunt through the west-end park.

The experience will send attendees on a quest to save "the Captain" through interactions with sci-fi characters and objects spread throughout Christie. Attendees who complete the event will be rewarded with a dance party hosted by Toronto's DJ Me Time. "Splinter-Dimensional" launched earlier today and will run until July 18 at 8 p.m. ET.

"We want to get Torontonians out of their homes and in sync with their inner child," Planet Fabulon event organizer Anna Douglas (who also plays the Captain) said in a statement.

"When we were invited to participate in Luminato's Creative Current programming this year, we knew we would still need to lean into technology to dream up a safe event. But we want to get folks back outside in the real world! How? By using augmented reality to create a physical adventure designed with safety, accessibility, and most importantly, our particular brand of sci-fi whimsy in mind."
