1. Mine Train Presented by Samsung Gear VR

Ocean Park Hong Kong Christmas Sensation will kick off on 11th December 2017 with Hong Kong’s first-ever virtual reality (VR) rollercoaster, Mine Train presented by Samsung Gear VR. We were there during the launch and it was my first time riding a roller coaster with VR on. Totally a different experience compared to the normal roller coaster ride that I have tried. Two thumbs up to the VR rollercoaster Mine Train experience!

Getting ready to start my first virtual reality (VR) rollercoaster ride

After putting on Samsung Gear VR headset, buckled up and ready to go! In front of me was a stunning Amazon adventure that synchronizes virtual movement to real motion will begins. Then the thrills begin with the rollercoaster speed, and the surroundings. We traveled into the natural environment of the Amazon rainforest, and come face-to-face with green anaconda, three-toed sloth, jaguar and a lot more amazing animals.

And then there was a sudden drop diving into the deep sea, as the rollercoaster dashes down in high-speed (abt 71km/hr). I can feel the impact… at that point of time, my heart skipped a beat, just let it go and fly. Throughout the ride I was screaming but I had lots of fun up there.

2. VR Arcade, VR Challenge Zone and VR Forest Adventure

So after the rollercoaster ride, we headed over to the VR Arcade and VR Challenge Zone which is also nearby. Well this area is more subtle and its air-conditioned. There are a few engaging ultra-realistic VR games that you can try on such as the classic Fruit Ninja, gun shooting, flying in the air, and also completing tasks on a hanging bridge. You also can have your cardio exercise there at the same time test your speed and dexterity in the hyper-speed bikes, boxing and basketball games too.

As for the VR Forest Adventure is more like a VR experience whereby you will be immersed in 360-degree views of the Amazon rainforest, imagining yourself walking in the shade and rafting on the river, as well as experiencing tribal folk life. Enjoy the natural beauty of the rainforest in 360 degrees, see birds, butterflies flying and also learn about the importance of conservation.
