Welcome to Pyramid Hill.

Pyramid Hill is your gateway to Reed + Rader’s virtual worlds.

These experiences are fully interactive and are made from the finest cutting edge 3D engine, animation and 3D scanning technologies.

Currently we have three experiences available to share:
1. Wubba World - Parachute out of a blimp through a cloud of balloons onto a rainbow colored landscape populated by a race of giant smiling ice cream cones.
2. Bots – Visit a post-singularity laboratory filled with experiments in human augmentation, dinosaur faces, and tentacles.
3. Cretaceous Returns - Return to the Cretaceous period and ride among friends with giant brontosauruses.

Having trouble finding an experience that you like? We apologize, new worlds are in progress.

Have a good day.
