Abstract:Efteling is the biggest theme park in Holland focused on families. However, one of their most popular and family friendly attractions Droomvlucht is not accessible for visitors without the ability to walk. Therefore, the challenge was to find a way for them to experience Droomvlucht using virtual reality technology (VR). The solution was to create a joint multisensory VR experience of Droomvlucht with an ability to talk to over distance. This setup was tested with representative visitors during an experiment in the park. The results were that this experience was immersive and created a feeling of togetherness, because the virtual and the real experience were synchronised and the visitors could talk with each other. Their conclusion was that the setup that was tested would be a valuable solution for most disabled visitors. Therefore it can be concluded that a joint multisensory VR experience for Droomvlucht is an opportunity for Efteling to further investigate.
