Warner Bros. Movie World in Queensland, Australia, has officially opened the Southern Hemisphere’s first virtual reality rollercoaster experience to take guests on a unique and immersive adventure.

The park’s iconic Arkham Asylum coaster, which was developed in partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products on behalf of DC Entertainment, has launched with virtual reality.

The implementation of virtual reality has transformed the ride into a 360-degree experience, with the technology seamlessly syncing the physical attributions of the popular coaster, which takes guests up to speeds of 85km/h.

“As Warner Bros. Movie World celebrates its 25th anniversary, we are excited to bring this innovative technology to one of the most exciting, signature attractions at the park,” said Warner Bros. Movie World general manager, Greg Yong.

“With the addition of the virtual reality technology to the Arkham Asylum ride, which is inspired by Gotham City’s asylum in the world of DC’s Batman, guests can experience the synchronisation of thrilling twists, turns and loops of the coaster with the virtual world of high-definition imagery and visuals created.

“Guests wear specialised virtual reality headsets as they embark on an epic multi-dimensional journey unlike anything ever experienced at the iconic Warner Bros. Movie World theme park.”
