ParadropVR to open City Flyer attraction in Bangkok's King Power Mahanakhon

Supplier: Frontgrid

More Frontgrid details
Set to open later this year, the attraction will take riders on a self-controlled VR flight across Bangkok
Frontgrid is set to launch its ParadropVR City Flyer attraction at King Power Mahanakhon, a mixed-use skyscraper located in the central business district in Bangkok, Thailand.

Expected to launch in summer 2019, the world-first attraction offers a unique virtual paragliding experience.

Riders, sat in a suspended paragliding harness and wearing a VR headset, experience a self-controlled VR flight across Bangkok. Exclusive bespoke content and wind/sound effects create a fully immersive environment, while gamification elements and full flight controls put the rider at the heart of the experience.

Matt Wells, Frontgrid CEO and co-founder, said: "We're excited to be launching the world's first ParadropVR City Flyer at King Power Mahanakhon in Bangkok. To be part of such an iconic new development is a real honour, and reflects the confidence King Power have in our product."

Called ParadropVR, the VR attraction is designed to provide an immersive experience that realistically simulates the feeling of flying on a paraglider. The ride features a smooth up and down motion that incorporates sudden drops and smooth deceleration, making the rider feel as though they are actually flying in the sky. ParadropVR also features an interactive gaming element where riders score points by flying through a series of targets as they descend back down to earth.
