Jungle Boat VR

Climb on board our Jungle Boat VR to be transported to a jungle paradise and help DASH as he locates the missing crystals. An immersive 4D VR ride in a safe and exciting environment for all the family to enjoy!  Seating up to 8 people, this unique experience offers a perfect family attraction during the summer holidays. Once aboard the jungle boat, you’ll be transported into D.A.S.H’s virtual world using our HD VR headsets.

Your journey will begin soon, along with the incredible range of motions our jungle boat has to offer; two front fans and surround sound for a fully immersive 4D experience. Tilting forwards, backwards and side to side, the boat’s movements have been specially designed to mirror those of the full 360 degree experience, creating an experience fit for an explorer!

Once on board you will be given a clean, fully adjustable VR headset. We understand that for younger children this may prove to be too much, so the same content will be played on a screen at the front of the ride. Sit back and enjoy the immersive experience as the boat moves and the wind blows, your quest begins!
