If you are an ardent traveller who loves exploring, then you should consider yourself lucky to be existing in a time when travel innovation is at an all-time high. From underwater restaurants to air taxis to face scanning aquariums to interactive bible museum, the world of tech & travel has offered us some of the ethereal discoveries of a lifetime.
Adding to the list of amazing innovations is a huge virtual reality theme park currently under construction in Guiyang, the capital city of the Guiyang Province. This only adds to the long list of travel tech innovations that will change the world.
Born out of the collaboration of Guizhou Ssangyong Airport Economic Zone Administrative Committee and Dongfang Times Network Media Co., Ltd, the foundation for the one-of-a-kind massive 10 billion project was laid in 2016. And the vision was to build the world’s first science fiction application and R&D industry base with a combination of 3D printing, holographic tech, and sci-fi technologies.
As you step inside the interactive theme park, you will feel the vibe of being in some kind of a UFO base surrounded by structures which look like as if they were taken out of a science fiction movie. Grab your VR headsets, and you are good to go.
Some of the major highlights of the theme park include – star wars themed VR rollercoaster ride, a tour of the solar system, guardian gemini virtual ride, science fiction theatre, constellation amusement hall, and an alien battlefield rail car.
