We witness devastating natural calamities such as typhoons, earthquakes, tsunamis, and fires around us once in a while. There are a number of virtual reality experiences out there that don’t require any gaming interest or dexterity to encounter these natural calamities. PREMIERWORLD and its creative team are involved in designing breathtaking Virtual Reality Experiences and installing them in parks.
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 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 debris and dust. Suddenly the visibility becomes poor. Show elements like a helicopter approaches but gets caught in the fierce wind and crashes. A tree comes crashing down and a shop window bursts open with the crash of breaking glass. Suddenly visibility becomes poor the street lights starts flickering and at one point one of the street light over the petrol pump starts sparking and the pole falls over the pump which bursts into fire and smokes. 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, the show comes to a halt.
EARTHQUAKE- Virtual Reality Ride Experience
The ride starts with Gupta family buys a brand new TV and has invited friends around to see it. The living room is furnished with modern furniture and the replica is mounted on a motion base but the visitors have no idea of this as they enter and take their seats. The TV is showing the end of a popular program and the credits are rolling. The TV is bigger than the normal. All of a sudden the picture distorts and lights flick, an announcer comes hurriedly on screen to announce that we are experiencing an earthquake and everybody should stay calm. Unfortunately a piece of the scenery behind becomes dislodged and crashes on his head. This reveals the rest of the studio in a state of panic trying to hold of lights and support equipment. The room continues to experience tremors. During a comparative lull the visitors relax but just as they think the worst is over there is a particularly violent shaking and Mr. Gupta’s wall furniture comes crashing down, book case crashes forward, lights starts flickering and swaying. As the tremor subside an attendant rushes in and advices everybody to leave immediately. Visitors leave in a horrible state of mind which ends the Virtual Reality Ride Experience!
VOLCANO- Virtual Reality Ride Experience
After the physically tiring and shocking experiences visitors look forward to the apparent peace and quiet experience of the forested area they enter. There is blissful nature everywhere. Birds tweeting, monkeys making friendly noises. Before what appears to be a large hill the visitors sits down on logs and tree branches to relax. Suddenly the birds become restless and a low rumbling noise can be heard. Tiger roars, elephants trumpet fills the air with utter fear! The entire Jungle is apprehensive. The rambling very rapidly increases and the hill turns out to be a volcano which erupts with a large explosion. The display continues with smoke steam and fire and flickering lava flows all this is accompanied by the frantic cries of monkeys and distress calls of other animals. After the initial eruption the volcano continuous throwing out material which is an attractive spectacle but not apparently threatening. The surprise is that it finally erupts with the biggest bang yet and though they are being showered with hot lava, a few drop of hot water falls on the visitors. They leave with a sigh of relief which ends the Virtual Reality Ride Experience!
