Burj Khalifa Dubai (Virtual Reality Ride)
However, the tallest building in the world is also the most expensive. And there will never be a shortage of all sorts of adventure sports. If I talk about the trip, that’s the best thing I can say, but still, I’m going to let you know why and how? At the Peak, Burj Khalifa has unveiled a new virtual reality (VR) experience that stimulates the true feeling of ascending 160 habitable floors of the world’s tallest structure, as well as ascending to its highest point, the spire.
Named ‘Mission 828,’ the new attraction also offers tourists the chance to witness a spurred, four-minute parachute-jump down to The Dubai Fountain to give them a taste of what it’s like to climb up and down the tower in an exciting way. It can be encountered from six VR pods situated at Level 125 and Level 124.
The ‘mission commander’ can reach users in VR mode during their elevator ride to the tower’s 160th level. They then collect suction gloves to ascend the spire, a pinnacle at 828 meters. Then, they grab the parachute for a free-fall VR ride into the dancing fountains.
The experience uses ‘room-scale’ monitoring technology and the VR technology that enables users to travel in three-dimensional space and communicate with the world with motion-tracked handheld controls. The pods also have wind-effects that make them as ‘actual’ as possible.
Mission 828 was produced by a team of experts working with the Philharmonic Orchestra, UNICEF, the British Fashion Council, and Rotary International, as well as promoting film productions such as Harry Potter 6 and 7.
The ticket charge for Mission 828 is an additional AED35 per person on a daily basis. At the peak entry rate, currently at an average of AED125.
- Location- Dubai
- Ticket price for one person each- AED125(Arab Emirates Durham)
- Duration – You will be spending around an hour in the whole Virtual reality session because it varies from block to block.
This is the experience of a tourist who visited here a couple of months ago-
A fantastic view and the ‘telescopes’ not only showed you the real view, but you could adjust the view to see what the skyline looks like at night, an iconic view or a ‘clear day’ view-only in case the day you go isn’t clear.
I would recommend that you take the time before you leave to sit down and listen to the different stories of the people who helped to create and clean (the window cleaner was great) the house. With a teenage kid, we couldn’t have missed the chance to make use of VR. We pre-booked online, but there didn’t seem to be a queue. It was completely worth it because it was a wonderful experience.
Hyperspace Mountain at Hong Kong Disneyland
Space Mountain in Hong Kong Disneyland was the fifth edition of the outer space-themed roller coaster enclosed in Disney Parks using VR experience. The newest Space Mountain (not to mention the four latest refurbishments of Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, Tokyo Disneyland, and Magic Kingdom) is based on the refurbished Space Mountain in Disneyland, with a similar soundtrack and the same layout. It also contains modern display features not seen in California’s renovated edition (i.e., a “hyperspeed” tunnel). The configuration of the Rockin’ Space Mountain was not included in Disneyland’s Space Mountain in 2007.
Unlike most of the Space Mountains, the boarding area for attractions is very limited. The two most similar space stations in Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland are not present. Instead, the field is adorned with a dark queue showing neon earth-tone colored planets along with star patterns. The station walls are lined with colored neon light bars used for illumination and decoration.
It’s the only Space Mountain to feature Single-Rider using the VR technology alongside its standard standby and FASTPASS.
As part of the Hong Kong Disneyland, Haunted Halloween festival from 2007 to 2013, Space Mountain underwent a Halloween overlay. At its 10th anniversary celebration, Space Mountain was turned into a Hyperspace Mountain with a Star Wars theme to go along with it.
Before the rocket launches, this ride has a mission control with a person providing safety instructions:
“Space travelers, for your safety, please remain seated with your hands, arms, feet, and legs inside the rocket and supervise children. You are cleared to go.” It says the same thing in Cantonese before this and Mandarin after that. (2005–current)
This line plays in the line before entering the station:
“Welcome, space travelers. Space Mountain is an exciting, fast-paced, turbulent roller-coaster trip in the dark that involves abrupt twists, unexpected drops & stops. Before you embark on your journey, please put all your helmets, glasses, and loose belongings inside the storage bags immediately in front of you. To prepare for the launch, pull the lap bar towards you
- Location- Hong Kong
- Ride duration – At least 15 mins
- Ticket price – $ 639HK
Up to the attraction itself, set up the Hyperspace Mountain. Still, I don’t think that’s a bad thing because as soon as you get into that ride vehicle, something changes.
The whole VR experience of Hyperspace Mountain is nothing short of breathtaking. From the movement of the vehicle to the music to the lighting and visual effects to the smoothness of the journey, all fit together so well that not only are you completely absorbed in the Star Wars World; the overlay is so good that it’s hard to imagine that Hyperspace Mountain is not the original intention of attraction.
I rode Space Mountain numerous times until it turned into Hyperspace Mountain, and the attraction and VR effects was also good. However, the overlay has tenfold enhanced this attraction. I’d go out on a limb and say Hyperspace Mountain might be the most successful “overlay” of any Disney Park ride.

Inside The Ferrari World
These are the stuff you need to look at and learn inside the Ferrari world-
For pace lovers, Formula Rossa is the place to be! The extreme height it covers or the swirls of the stomach are strong enough to scare you to death. So, it’s a smart idea, don’t try to get here while you’re wearing your heart on your sleeve.
Fiorano GT Challenge
Here, you’ve got to do a challenge while riding one of those F430 spider-shaped four-wheelers. Going all the way along the tracks that run parallel to each other, the twin roller coaster cross paths come to the foreplay.
For those who love to spend long hours watching virtual racing games, Scuderia Challenge is the place to stop. This competition is nothing but a six-man speed race that takes place around the Yas Marina virtual circuit.
Speed of magic VR
This ride is a secret treat for you. Well, be sure about this one! As soon as you start feeling lethargic at this level-one looking roller-coaster train, there’s a simulated character right away. As he travels through various exotic destinations, you begin to follow him religiously within a few minutes.
In addition to those mentioned above, Ferrari World has G-Force, Bell’ Italia, V12, Flying Aces, Tyre Twist, and finally, a real Ferrari Ride. Isn’t it amazing? Well, that’s not all! Once you are done with your family outing at this Ferrari World, there’s a lot more near it for you to explore.

- Ticket price – AED245
- Duration – Varies block to block and ride to ride
Live the dream and feel the magic of Yas Island full of VR effects behind the wheel of a Ferrari, be transported on unforgettable journeys through captivating virtual environments in state-of-the-art simulation apps, and sharpen your driving skills on an epic 290-meter-long track inspired by the famous Yas Marina Circuit.
It’s scary and totally, absolutely exhilarating. My heart is so tumultuous; I think it might have been temporarily transplanted from an overly happy puppy. Formula Rossa at the Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi is the fastest roller coaster in the world.
Using the kind of hydraulic launch system that launches aircraft from aircraft carriers, it achieves 240 kilometers per hour from a stand-up start in just 4.9 seconds. Before I have a chance to find out what’s going on with me, I’m shot to the top of a vertical tower, and I’m about to crash down into a sharply twisted curve.
At the top, the comparatively mundane reality of the rest of the ride doesn’t seem to be an option – I’m being shot into the next life, and there’s no better way to go. The Formula Rossa is unquestionably excellent. The concern is not that it’s that it’s the highlight of the Ferrari World – it’s the magic moment of most theme parks across the globe – it’s that it’s the highlight of such a long stretch.
Ferrari World is the largest indoor amusement park in the world, and it’s an architectural wonder. The red roof is built to look like a Ferrari badge and includes a web-like metal lattice that sprouts geyser-style from the central point before softly creating an enveloping mushroom cup over the rides, restaurants, and red cars. There’s a lot of the above. It depends on how enthusiastic you are about Ferraris if this is a positive idea.

The Jurassic Park River Rapids
The ride is based on the idea of Jurassic Park, and you can drift, rush, and plummet across the rapids of the river. Riders begin with a structure similar to that seen in the Jurassic Park River Adventure. The ride starts quickly, and then unexpectedly, flash floods strike, and that’s when things get really fun. The rides ride through a range of jungles and terrains that exceed various dinosaurs along the way. This water-based Jurassic Park ride is full of fun-filled with a lot of suspense and scares.
Amber Rock Climb
Vertical wall studded with skeletons of Dinosaurs, ideal for beginner and experienced climbers. There is also a pint-size wall for kids.
Dino-soaring and Canopy flyer
Although Dino-soaring will let you ride your own dinosaur and control its vertical motion, the flying Canopy will let you climb high and give a bird’s eye view of “The Lost World.”

- Jurassic Park Rapids Adventure(Lost World) –The fun is on getting wet; even the sudden drop at the end of the ride wasn’t that exciting.

Shrek 4-D (also known as Shrek 3-D for DVD release and The Ghost of Lord Farquaad for Netflix and streaming release) is a 4D simulator and VR ride attraction with motion-based effects and water sprayers found in numerous theme parks around the world. It is now being seen at Universal Parks & Resorts in Florida, Japan, Singapore, and formerly in Hollywood, where it closed on 13 August 2017 to make room for the DreamWorks Theater attraction.
Outside the Universal Parks, the film was shown at Movie Park in Germany from May 2008 to July 2011 and at Warner Bros. Movie World in Australia from September 2005 to August 2010. A spin-off attraction called Donkey’s Photo Finish is located in Florida, while Meet Shrek and Donkey are located in Hollywood.
In Universal Studios Japan, the attraction is seen in the same theatre as Sesame Street 4-D Movie Magic, the Shrek 4-D film is seen in the first half of the day, and the Sesame Street film is seen in the second half of the day. Although the animation is 3D, the ride is a 4D video that includes physical effects, including motion seats that tilt forward, backward, vibrate, and up and down during the performance. Water sprayers are mounted to the back of each seat to spray the rider’s face behind it—water sprayers sitting on the ceiling spray runners’ front row.

During the attraction’s time at Warner Bros. Movie World, a short-lived live show named Shrek Live was shown in the park’s Show Stage.
These are some of the best rides and locations where you can spend your holiday and, at the same time, enjoy so many things along with VR Experiences, such as cultural performances and so many other things. All the rides and amusement parks are situated in the southern part of Asia, excluding that of the Ferrari World.
The Ferrari world is one of the most exclusive parks of its kind. If I’m talking about Universal Studios Singapore, then that park is a whole set of entertainment where you can enjoy almost any trip along with the Hollywood and Virtual Reality experience. In the end, I would suggest that every park has its own charisma that you really should try to visit. I’m sure that’s going to be one of the most memorable moments of your life.
