Battle for Eire- Action VR Ride coming to Busch Gardens Williamsburg in 2018

Busch Gardens Williamsburg has revealed exciting details about its new virtual reality ride, debuting in spring 2018. The park’s newest attraction will be called Battle For Eire™—Action VR Ride.

The revolutionary VR attraction will feature a fierce fairy warrior named Addie, who will lead riders on an unforgettable adventure through her homeland, Ireland.

A host of characters, some heroic and some villainous, join Addie in a thrilling story fit for the whole family. Addie’s goal is to rescue the Heart of Eire, which represents the magic of Ireland, but she needs a little help from the park’s guests.

Located in the Ireland village of the park, Battle For Eire is a marriage of a motion-based theater simulator with state-of-the-art 360-degree virtual reality headsets, creating an innovative experience unlike any other in the attraction industry. Riders will be completely immersed within the story and be able to see, hear and feel actions happening all around them, both through the virtual reality headsets and within the motions of the simulator.

“We are taking guests on an incredible journey,” said Larry Giles, Vice President of Engineering at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. “The movement of the simulator combined with interactive special effects from the VR headsets will deliver an exciting, high-energy experience, with a great storyline.”

The opening of this attraction will kick off another exciting season at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, which has been named the “World’s Most Beautiful Theme Park” by the National Amusement Park Historical Association for 27 consecutive years. From its thrilling roller coasters, world-class dining options and kid-friendly attractions, Busch Gardens offers fun for the whole family.

Following the addition of InvadR™, the park’s first-ever wooden roller coaster, in 2017, Busch Gardens is demonstrating its continued commitment of investing in new, innovative experiences for the second consecutive year with Battle For Eire in 2018.

“Battle For Eire will be the type of experience that only Busch Gardens can deliver,” said David Cromwell, Park President at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. “The combination of innovative VR headsets with our flight simulator will create an immersive, exciting environment for guests of all ages.”

A standard version of the video will be available to view for those interested in a more traditional experience.

About mrwilliamsburg

I love Williamsburg !
Being “Mr. Williamsburg” and starting my web site in 2004 has been a great way for me to help people looking for homes for sale, communities and an “insider knowledge.” of the area.
Turned out I was onto something. Because I offer in-depth information and up-to-the-minute blogging, even international clients have found me. One couple, moving back to the States from France, told me that a post I wrote blog about grocery shopping in Williamsburg convinced them that Williamsburg was the place to be, and that I was the best source by far that they found on the web.
I’m happy to say that I hear similar comments from many of my clients looking for homes throughout Williamsburg and Hampton Roads.
I grew up in Virginia Beach, Va, After attending college, I worked at a number of positions including manager of a land development and construction company and business manager of a cut flower business that we grew in sales from $300,000 to $15 million (we were supplier to Whole Foods and one of the first cut flower suppliers to Costco).
In 2004, it seemed like a good time to simplify my life. I moved my family from Annapolis to Williamsburg. I went into real estate with Liz Moore and Associates, and was one of the initial agents when Liz opened her Williamsburg branch.
My sons Zach and Josh attend Lafayette High School and Hornsby Middle School and are crazy about sports and the outdoors.
I feel lucky to be living the dream, and saving two to four hours by not driving on the DC beltway every day. So, I can now spend my time with family while concentrating on learning — and sharing — information about living in Williamsburg.
In real estate, no two people or transactions are the same. Everything’s a challenge, and I’m rewarded every time in close a transaction and have the opportunity to see the smiles on clients’ faces.
