What Is A Virtual Reality Experience?
One of the fastest growing areas of Adventure Days or Experience Days Out undoubtedly has to be Virtual Reality Experiences. It's definitely increased in popularity in the last few years, even though it's been around for a lot longer than you imagine.
Perhaps you're of an age to remember films like 80s cult classics such as Tron, or more recent blockbusters such as The Matrix and Ready Player One. But what was once the thing of science fiction is now possible and open to a wider audience than ever before.
With the very latest technology, you'll have the opportunity to immerse yourself into whole worlds, time periods or different dimensions to explore, that'll amaze you and be a fully engaging and vivid experience for your senses!
What Can I Do On A Virtual Reality Experience?
The short answer is just about anything! The brilliant thing about VR is that you can be transported to just about any time or any place - including in history!
One great example of this is the fully working VR Spitfire Simulator Experience that we offer at Blackpool Airport in Lancashire, which uses the most up to date technology, in the form of 360° Air Combat Pro graphics on the supplied virtual reality headset that you'll wear whilst sitting in the cabin of a simulator that's been built with the shell of a genuine Supermarine Spitfire.
And on this 60 minute session for two, you'll have your choice of either going head to head in an aerial combat simulator, or outsmarting the Luftwaffe's me109s in combat on the skies above Normandy, as you feel every roll and pitch movement, that's so realistic you'll be able to gain even a small amount of the nerves and adrenaline Spitfire pilots felt up in the skies.
Back in the present day, perhaps you've always had a secret desire to follow in the tyre marks of a Formula 1 racing driver? Then our VR Racing Simulator packages available to book in London and Manchester should appeal - and they also all happen to be at a great value price point under £50! You can take your pick from any number of instantly recognisable and iconic F1 and GT3 championship series tracks to drive on, and see if you can come out on top of the VR Grand Prix!
For those avid gamers in Birmingham or the West Midlands, our VR Gaming packages that are available for as much as groups of four to book at The Custard Factory will surely be a hit, as you'll have the opportunity to take part in and play a wide variety of solo and multiplayer games using headsets, controllers, computers and play space for the duration of your session.
Those who fancy themselves a detective will love getting into the fun role play of the Drake's Secret and The Wren Code VR Game packages, hosted at the stunning backdrop of the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington in London. Can you uncover the clues and solve the puzzles to unearth the mystery of the V and A's hidden treasures or foil the notorious criminal organisation known as The Syndicates from carrying out their heist? Time will tell - if you have your wits and ingenuity about you…
