What is the Amazing 3D mapping show?
3D Mapping is a technology used to turn objects such as buildings, statues, or theatrical stages into a display surface for video projection. These objects are spatially mapped by specialized software so that the image to be projected would fit onto the surface of that object, creating marvelous optical illusions and notions of movement. 3D mapping projections often come with audio material to create stunning audio-visual narratives.
Phoebus Amusement Park is the only thematic destination in the Philippines that changes its 3D mapping show periodically to fit the current celebration or season. It is an educational as well as an entertaining experience that should not be missed, especially by your kids. Such a show will be remembered by young minds all their lives.
