20,000 Leagues Ride in VR
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea ride of Disney was a classic place to visit which closed about 27 years ago but this could not stop someone from hopping aboard. The Defunctland is a show created and hosted by Kevin Perjurer’s is an unofficial theme park preservation project which has now exhilarated the 20000 Leagues Ride attraction in VR. You just need to wear a VR headset and can recreate what it feels like to faux submarine as you are guided by Captain Nemo through Arctic Waters, Atlantis and a giant squid’s clutches are escaped.
How was it Created?
So the team at Defunctland made use of footage from the 1980s and 1990s and Epic’s Unreal Engine to rejuvenate the ride in today’s virtual reality. The viewers wanting to witness the experience of the 20000 Leagues ride can make use of any VR helmet as a video on YouTube but there also exists an app for Windows PC owners utilizing headsets like Oculus Quest 2 or Valve Index or HTC Vive.
Relieving Childhood Rides
And the creator of the show Defunctland made his intention clear that they would not be doing 20000 Leagues Ride alike recreation only once but they will be trying to reconstruct such rides for all sorts of theme parks unless some owner objects. So one can enjoy childhood rides and relive memories through VR. This can be an interesting project because companies like Disney doesn’t want to reopen such projects as they do to their movies.
