After the skydiving simulators, dodgem cars and ten-storey slides of recent years, the cruise industry is keeping up the pace in 2017 with new features including race tracks, virtual reality rollercoasters and huge water parks. One of these projects will feature virtual reality entertainment in particular; check the project details here:
Name: Norwegian Joy
Line: Norwegian Cruise Line
Debut: Norwegian Joy, based in Shanghai and Tianjin (Beijing), will cater for the Chinese market when it launches in the summer.
Special features: Guests will be able to compete against each other on a two-level race track – the first ever at sea – and ride on hovercraft bumper cars. There will also be laser tag, simulator rides and interactive video walls. Three interactive dark ride simulators will feature 3D graphics, 360-degree surround sound and special effects, while movie fans will be able to pilot a fighter in a Star Wars video game.
Virtual reality will allow passengers to design and ride a rollercoaster, soar over mountains and oceans, or walk along the top of a ten-storey building. For real thrills they can try out two multi-storey waterslides.
