Have you always dreamed of skydiving or parachuting but you don’t want to leave the ground? The Vill’Up shopping mall has found the solution to meet your needs by offering, from Monday June 18, 2018, an original flight in its indoor skydiving center, iFly: flying above Hawaii, Dubai and California in VR.
A new virtual reality display has been set up on the helmet the visitor wears during the flight and offering him to experience a skydiving experience as if he was jumping off of a plane. Accompanied by an instructor, the aspiring flying-man can make the best of the experience without having to worry about his flight in the tunnel since the latter are here to help him maintain a stable position.
Voler au dessus de Miami à Paris, c’est possible ! Vivre la sensation de chute libre, c’est déjà quelque chose mais se sentir dans la peau d’un parachutiste au dessus de Miami grâce à la VR, voilà une expérience qui vaut le détour ! @iflyparis @villup_paris #ifly #voler #paris #fun #chutelibre #untrucdeouf
All in all, three flights are planned to enjoy the experience: a first flight without the VR helmet (but still with an average helmet) to discover (or rediscover) the tunnel and find the correct position; a second flight, still without the VR helmet to improve your performances with a flight with the instructor to the top of the tunnel; and a last flight with the VR helmet.
A VR flight the editorial board tried… Our verdict? The experience is interesting, and we particularly love the real-life shots for the virtual reality, that make the flight more immersive. Yet, we’re disappointed because we can’t see lot of the landscape, and you really have to move your head to see just a tiny bit of Hawaii. But, the experience remains delightful and is really worth it. Let’s go back, friends?
