The Valkyria Virtual Reality experience was a project in partnership with Liseberg, one of scandinavia’s largest amusement parks. The project initiated to give guests a glimpse into the upcoming Valkyria rollercoaster ride set to be launched in the summer of 2018.
Guests were given a true to life rollercoaster experience with six simulator chairs along with multiple Oculus Rift headsets. The virtual environment transported guests back in time to the viking age. There were falling rocks, fire, stone monsters and viking ships, all in a setting true to fantasy.
The experience begins with an intro where you can follow a story that explains why the attraction is called Valkyria. All along, riders are virtually taken up to the top of the rollercoaster, the simulator chairs moving and adjusting themselves to ensure a true dimensional experience.
The experience accommodates six people on chairs that are completely in sync with the real rollercoaster experience, climbing and falling, twisting and turning. To add an additional dimension to the experience, riders also had wind blown towards them when they were at the highest peak of the ride and falling with incredible speed.
