A unique virtual reality experience

Tree allows visitors to “be” a rainforest tree through the use of virtual reality. Feel what it is like growing from a seedling to a full-fledged tree, then meeting a fate determined by the callous acts of mankind. 

This unique empathetic experience, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2017, is in Singapore for the first time. Cloud Forest’s Crystal Mountain will house two booths where you can experience Tree.
