Ah, virtual reality; the technology that transports you to imaginative worlds with just a simple headset. With the advent of VR in recent years, more and more companies are embracing the technology to create new immersive platforms beyond mere gameplay. Just take HeadRock VR for instance, an all-new theme park that fully utilises the power of VR for a larger-than-life escapade unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.
Set to be Singapore’s first and largest virtual reality theme park, this next-level digital attraction is the latest brainchild of Korean production house Mediafront and will be making its highly-anticipated debut on 17 November at Resorts World Sentosa.
Adrenaline junkies are sure to get a kick out of the 11 thrilling rides available – from plunging into molten lava from a height of more than 1000 metres on the Flying Dive, to navigating extreme river rapids on the crowd-favourite Jungle Rafting. Or if you’re up for something more adventurous, hop on a dog sled as you brave through a snowy storm blizzard on the Storm Blizzard.
More reason to make a trip down to HeadRock VR? If you’re a fellow K-popper, you’d be surprised to know that BIGBANG’s Seungri serves as the franchise’s Creative Director and will also be in town to grace the official launch event. This marks the enterprising star’s first foray into the IT sector, having already owned several flourishing businesses under his belt including a rapidly-expanding Japanese ramen chain, a luxury lounge bar and an EDM music label.
