Virtual Adventures™ Launches New VR Concept, Retail Business Model
Company Also Unveils Mobile Virtual Reality Trailer
Dallas, TX—After discovering that current business models to generate revenue with virtual reality games had been largely unsuccessful, Virtual Adventures™ has launched a new concept using the latest fully immersive VR rides for retail and game/inflatable rental companies.
Virtual Adventures (VA) is a division of Immersive Realm LLC, which was formed in 2017 “to pursue opportunities in cutting-edge VR technology for the entertainment business”, according to Raul Suarez, Managing Partner. “We’ve spent the last year researching developers, testing rides, establishing our tech support system and refining a business model that makes VR affordable, viable and sustainable.”
After meeting with the most creative VR ride designers, VA forged a North American partnership with “the top developer of the most reliable rides featuring highly advanced sensory technology”, Suarez explained. The Virtual Adventures branded rides feature 360° HD audio & video, full surround motion, pulsing sensations and even wind effects.
“For the first time, the participant is fully immersed in the world of virtual reality, not simply the visual component of a typical VR headset,” Suarez commented. “People say the feeling is like they’re really living the adventure.”
The company is the first to offer revenue share options as a means to capitalize on the growing interest in VR. Suarez said that “the possibilities are vast—arcades, c-stores, amusement parks, bars & restaurants, resorts and more. While operators can own the rides, we’re able to offer them at no cost and share in the revenue.” He added that being based in the US with a tech support team “puts us on the leading edge of the VR amusement industry even if you have no virtual reality expertise.”
MOBILE VR TRAILER INTRODUCED
Virtual Adventures also announced the unveiling of a self-contained, turnkey VR mobile trailer. “We’re breaking new ground by offering a fully immersive VR experience in a mobile setup–we’re bringing this extraordinary experience directly to the people”, stated Dan Allen, VA’s Marketing Manager. “Our VR pod chairs feature over 100 adventures with something exciting for all ages and interests.” The company currently markets 3 different size configurations “which are ideal for all kinds of events—birthday parties, concerts, beer/BBQ festivals, corporate retreats, church bazaars, bikes rallies and more.”
Allen added that the VA mobile VR rig is surprisingly affordable, easy to operate and “can be used year-round since it has heat, AC and is fully wired ready to plug and play.” The company operates its own mobile VR units in Texas. Virtual Adventures is based in Dallas with offices in Fayetteville, AR and Bogota, Colombia. For more information, visit www.virtualadventuresusa.com.
