Amusement parks are increasingly using virtual and augmented reality technology to provide an immersive experience to customers. Virtual reality is a 3D, computer generated environment which can interact with a person, whereas augmented reality turns an environment into a digital interface by placing virtual objects in the real world. Amusement parks are implementing this technology in rides and theater-based attractions. For instance, Plops land De Panne in De Panne, Belgium has a new virtual reality wooden roller coaster called Heidi The Ride, which can reach speeds of more than 43mph. Amusement park SeaWorld has started operating a new Kraken Virtual Reality Roller Coaster in Orlando. The Weave Breaker coaster brings the reality of jet skiing in an amusement park. Universal Studios have The Walking Dead mazes with augmented reality elements.
THE BUSINESS RESEARCH COMPANY EXPECTS THE GLOBAL RECREATION MARKET TO GROW TO $1 TRILLION BY 2021
North America was the largest region in the recreation market in 2017, accounting for more than one-third of the market share. This was mainly due to high disposable income, presence of a large middle class population that seek recreation services and huge popularity of sporting events among the population in countries such as the USA and Canada.
According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, to enhance visitor experience, amusement parks are transforming their attractions from passive amusements into participatory adventures. Motion tracking enables amusement parks to offer virtual reality experiences built for multiple people to experience simultaneously. A new experience was demonstrated with motion tracking and massive 4k resolution projections at Disneyland California.
