Moment Factory’s Astra Lumina opens at Anakeesta

Astra Lumina officially opened at Anakeesta. The brand-new, nighttime immersive adventure, created by Canadian-based multimedia entertainment studio Moment Factory, launched with a sold-out opening weekend. The stellar journey of discovery offers Gatlinburg a new nighttime offering. Astra Lumina at Anakeesta is the 15th experience in the Lumina Enchanted Night Walk series and the very first in the United States.

“We’re thrilled to open with so much excitement from our guests,” said Bob Bentz, Managing Partner at Anakeesta. “We are really feeling the energy from the city, Astra Lumina is only the beginning of Anakeesta’s vision to continue to offer Gatlinburg unparalleled experiences and continue to raise the bar for attractions in Tennessee.”

Visitors of all ages will take off on an exploration through a Smoky Mountain forest to experience astral magic. Visitors will journey across mysterious observatory grounds to discover a celestial pathway of lustrous light, cosmic visions, and astral song. Guests will be immersed in illuminating encounters of lighting, projection and sound, and connect with the stars.
