Southern Hemisphere’s first virtual reality coaster
Warner Bros. Movie World has officially opened the Southern Hemisphere’s first Virtual Reality rollercoaster experience to take guests on 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 transforming the ride into a 360-degree experience with the technology seamlessly syncing the physical attributions of the popular coaster with the visual to take guests on a multi-dimensional journey while reaching speeds of up to 85km/h and pulling 4.2Gs.
Warner Bros. Movie World General Manager, Greg Yong said this is an exciting addition to the park with the revolutionary technology offering an all new experience for guests.
“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,” he said.
“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 synchronization 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.”
The Virtual Reality experience at Movie World is powered by VR technology and has revolutionised the traditional rollercoaster experience. The Virtual Reality experience is a pay-for-play experience.
With the all new DC Super-Villains Unleashed and the Doomsday Destroyer now open, plus a major attraction announcement set in the near future, Warner Bros. Movie World is set to welcome a new era of entertainment for the Gold Coast and Australia.
The best way to experience Virtual Reality on Arkham Asylum is with a Village Theme Parks Membership which provides unlimited entry to Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World, Wet’n’Wild Gold Coast and Paradise Country.
