China Giving Finishing Touch to VR Park

China Giving Finishing Touch to VR Park

China will complete the first phase of its massive virtual reality park in December.
The virtual reality sci-fi theme park is under completion in Guiyang, the capital city of Guizhou Province in southwest China.
Slaying dragons, going on UFO trips and communicating with aliens are just some of the VR activities planned for the theme park, Daily Mail reported.
The theme park site is part of a larger project being masterminded by the Shenzhen VR Industry Federation hosting 1/3 of all VR companies in China. Astonishing images of the ground-breaking virtual reality theme park due to complete soon have recently been revealed.
One of the most impressive features is a gigantic Transformer statue with a height of 53 meters. It is built with 750 tons of steel, the weight of two Boeing 747 planes. ‘Transformers’ is a series of American science fiction action films based on toys. The theme park is called the ‘East Valley of Science and Fantasy’. Its first phase, called ‘Alien Base,’ is scheduled to get ready in December.
The theme park attraction is part of a massive 1.3-sq km, 10-billion-yuan ($1.52 billion) project being developed by the Oriental Times Media Corp’s animation unit which is listed on the Shenzhen stock market. However, the new venture will be devoted to virtual reality movie making, with a cutting-edge media research and development center.
A spokesman for the park revealed that VR helmets and other gadgets will be handed out to visitors so they can interact with the environment. The VR site will give players a more lifelike feeling than playing video games.
Additionally, the park will feature China’s first VR roller coaster and 13 pavilions showcasing different UFOs, which can help children explore outer space in a digitally immersive way.
