Northern Ireland - a land forged in fire, born in volcanic fury and sculpted by ice, wind and water. That’s how our story begins…
A story that features some of the most beautiful, dramatic and mystical landscapes to be seen anywhere in the world. These landscapes have given birth to incredible stories, myths and legends that have entertained, moved and even frightened listeners for generations.
According to our ancestors, Northern Ireland has been home to many weird and wonderful mythical creatures throughout the centuries. If they are to be believed, this is a land of giants, roamed by dragons and stalked by creatures of the night!
This summer, get ready to explore these mystical landscapes like never before. Step into ‘AMAZE’, our BRAND-NEW, truly unique, technological space and join us for the immersive experience ‘Land of Legends’.
Bringing together state of the art multi-screen projection, an immersive 'soundscape’ sound system, stunning photography, film, illustration, motion graphics, props, original music and more, ‘Land of Legends’ will take visitors of all ages on a whirlwind tour through some of Northern Ireland’s most spectacular landscapes and uncover some thrilling tales along the way.
‘Land of Legends’ has been created by some of Northern Ireland’s top creative talent. The immersive experience includes illustrations from Emmy award-winning ‘Game of Thrones’ storyboard artist William Simpson, animation and motion graphics by Oisin O’Brien & Visual Spectrum Studio, photography and film from local photographer Tony Dalton, props by film and television prop maker Denis Rush, illustrations by comics artist PJ Holden and a stunning soundtrack composed by musician Ryan Vail.

As part of our immersive experience, you can also ‘travel’ to fantasy worlds and stunning Northern Ireland landscapes through some magic doorways with our Augmented Reality (AR) Portals.
There are 6 AR portals located around W5. Visit an enchanted forest, see Belfast from the air or stand on the Giant’s Causeway.
Using your Apple (iOS) or Android smartphone, simply download our Portal App – ‘AMAZE Portals’. Once the app is downloaded, look out for the special symbols throughout W5, follow the instructions on your smartphone and unlock each portal door. Enter each world by physically walking through the virtual doorway and enjoy a complete 360-degree view of your new surroundings! You can even look back to the real world you came from!
The AMAZE Portals App is compatible with Android 5.0 and up and with iOS versions 11 or later. For best experience we recommend Android 8.0 and up and iOS versions 11 or later.
