Exploring Dubai's Innovative VR Theme Park

  1. 1. Exploring Dubai's Innovative VR Theme Park David T Ball
  2. 2. Introduction  Texas-based David T. Ball is an active member of the Dallas community through his support of the Crawl for Cancer fundraiser and his participation in the Urban Dare competition. As part of his job, David T. Ball regularly travels outside of the United States and counts Dubai as one of his favorite destinations. Virtual reality (VR) is becoming more and more prevalent as a form of entertainment and, as a result, has been regularly integrated into theme parks. Dubai, however, recently took the use of the augmented reality technology a step further with the establishment of VR Park, an indoor theme park in the Dubai Mall that is home to a multitude of VR experiences, including a zombie game inspired by The Walking Dead, a four-player co-op swamp-based shooter, and a colorful ride targeted at younger participants.
  3. 3. Dubai  Another game, Ape-X, sees players assume the role of a mega-sized, weaponized robot ape and includes a skyline that mirrors that of Dubai's. The theme park is laid out on two floors totaling more than 75,000 square feet and also includes physical rides, but the main attraction is the varied VR experiences. There are 18 different attractions which cost $12 each to play, but purchasing a Gold Package for $54 is a cost-effective measure that allows you to play any seven VR attractions.
