Scheduled Times on Level 4

Virtual Reality meets real life. This activity is a self-propelled, 4D virtual reality experience. This is a ticketed experience - to sign up, visit the Space Base on Level 4

Space Base utilizes the Virtusphere, a 10 foot diameter sphere of ABS plastic that rolls on a base of casters. Game players climb in the sphere and don head mounted display goggles and a backpack full of sensing equipment. The sphere rotates freely in any direction according to the user’s steps, allowing gamers to walk endlessly in a virtual environment. This technology allows a user to safely explore hazardous or complex environments, or become immersed in full-body gaming experiences.
