Battle For Eire Coming To Busch Gardens Williamsburg In 2018
At Busch Gardens Williamsburg, 2017 brought us InvadR, the park’s first ever wooden roller coaster. Now, 2018 is bringing us a new virtual reality ride. Battle For Eire – Action VR Ride is set to debut in spring of 2018! Check out the video the park released below!
The attraction’s story features Addie, a fierce fairy warrior who leads riders on an adventure trough her homeland, Ireland. Hop aboard a dragon because Addie needs you to help her rescue the Heart of Eire. Along the way, you’ll meet heroes, but you’ll also face off against villains like Balor, the Dark Lord. Throughout the journey, riders will soar high above the lush landscapes of the Otherworld.
The new attraction combines a motion-based simulator with state-of-the-art 360-degree virtual reality headsets. Riders will be completely immersed in the story in a way unlike any other attraction in the industry.
“We are taking guests on an incredible journey. 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,” said Larry Giles, Vice President of Engineering at Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
The new attraction will be located in the park’s Ireland Village and will offer a standard version of the video for anyone interested in a more traditional experience.
