Frontgrid will be launching a world-first virtual reality attraction at the Euro Attractions Show in Berlin later this month.
We are delighted to have partnered with Simworx to create and bring to market the first of our experiences, and to be launching ParadropVR™ at EAS 2017 in Berlin.
ParadropVR™ (patent pending) is an IP protected, truly immersive virtual reality attraction that simulates flying a paraglider. ParadropVR™ allows the user to fully control the gameplay and movement, with up with up and down motion that incorporates sudden drops and smooth deceleration to create a realistic feeling of gliding through the skies.
The ride also features an interactive game element controlled by the participant, with points awarded to each individual rider as they make their way ‘back down to earth’ via a series of targets through which they must fly to score maximum points.
With a modular design that provides high hourly capacity and low operating costs, ParadropVR™ is ideal for operation in a wide range of venues. Multiple theming and content options are available as well as an integrated mobile app, making it a suitable for theme parks, FECs, museums, shopping malls and destination attractions - as well as the events and mobile sector.
ParadropVR™ is a totally new concept and we’re hoping it will create significant interest among operators when revealed at the show. A press conference to officially announce the launch of ParadropVR™ will take place at EAS on Wednesday, September 27th, in the press room at the Messe Berlin Exhibition Centre.
If you’re visiting EAS and would like to learn more about ParadropVR™ we’d love to see you - let us know.
