BoldMove Nation, creators of Happier Worlds for themed and location-based entertainment, has launched WaterSlider VR, a new motion and media-based attraction.
WaterSlider VR combines physical thrills with virtual reality. Riders sit on a life raft that can seat up for four people and one wheelchair. The life raft is integrated in a sea container which houses the cabling and technical components.
The WaterSlide VR features a tropical beach party setting, with music to match. Visitors can use VR goggles to enjoy a virtual ride into the depths of the ocean. During the three-minute simulation, riders experience the hidden secrets of the ocean, including sunken cities and stone creatures.
The new attraction can be used in both indoor and outdoor venues. It is fully compliant with all safety requirements.
Benoit Cornet, CEO and captain of Creative Minds, comments on the WaterSlider VR: “From my sailing experience I can say that a life raft is not something you would like to use, although it will be crucial for survival in case of emergency. The WaterSlider VR however is safely boarded on shore and equipped with fun games and music instead of flares and whistles. The guests who are washed ashore can celebrate at the border of the ocean with tropical beach party vibes.”
