CYCLONE- Virtual Reality Ride Experience
We all know how devastating cyclone can be when in action! Audience feels they stand on the pavement on the corner of a square with a petrol pump and few shops nearby. A strong wind starts blowing making it hard to stand upright and suddenly the wind changes direction. Dust, leaves and debris blows across the audience. In the distance the dreaded shape of the eye of the storm is seen moving towards the platform simulator along with huge quantities of debris and dust. Suddenly the visibility becomes poor. A helicopter approaches but gets caught in the fierce wind and crashes. A tree comes crashing down and a shop window bursts open with a crash of breaking glass. The street lights start flickering and at one point one of the street light over the petrol pump starts sparking and the pole falls over the petrol pump which bursts into fire and smokes. In the dimming light heavy clouds herald the approach of rain and audience experience a few drops of water, totally unexpected. And to the utter surprise the virtual reality experience ends when the pavement on which the audience stands drops vertically not enough to throw them off their feet but a big bang to the end of the show.
