A new VR experience, with a twist!


The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts is excited to announce Swing @ the Kimmel, an interactive and FREE virtual reality swing installation in Commonwealth Plaza. In collaboration with Thrill Laboratory and “Thrill Engineer” Professor Brendan Walker of England, Philadelphians are invited to visit the Kimmel Center for this unique, artistic experience that conjures up memories of favorite childhood pastimes, blended with cutting-edge technology and imaginative designs. This extended FREE programming on the Kimmel Center Cultural Campus is an expansion of ongoing monthly programming that includes early childhood music education, jazz, Latin dance, and more



Kimmel Center reaches thousands of children each year through a unique set of free education offerings for students, teachers, and families, creating future artists and audiences.
