Galactica, which Alton Towers claims is the world’s first rollercoaster dedicated to virtual reality, is being made available for delegates attending corporate events at the theme park.
The resort has announced free exclusive hire of Galactica for all events held 7-25 November 2016, provided event planners book a minimum of 100 bedrooms.
Virtual Reality (VR) is being used increasingly in the corporate world for training delegates, showcasing a venue or concept without having to visit, or giving delegates an immersive experience offering momentary escapism from a day of meetings.
Astronauts normally experience a maximum G-force of around 3gs during a rocket launch. Riders on Galactica are promised an experience of a 3.5gs maximum G-force.
Simon Reveley, owner of Figment Productions Ltd said: “I think people will be stunned when they see what we’ve done with the VR content in terms of graphic quality. It delivers an experience with visuals that go way beyond the game-style graphics traditionally associated with Virtual Reality.”
