A new VR complex that combines augmented reality and virtual reality has opened at The Dubai Mall.
The Dubai Mall, the world's largest shopping and entertainment destination, is part of Downtown Dubai, Emaar Properties' flagship mega-development and at 12 million square feet, the mall's total area is equivalent in size to 200 soccer pitches. Now home to Emaar Entertainment's 75,000 square feet VR Park, the entertainment destination spans two levels of The Dubai Mall and is the largest high-quality indoor VR theme park.
"VR Park is the latest revolutionary experience to be delivered by Emaar Entertainment, offering cutting edge experiences," said Damien Latham, Chief Executive Officer of Emaar Entertainment. "As we continue to deliver unprecedented entertainment experiences, we're pushing the boundaries of innovation for the industry and inviting visitors to #ChallengeReality with our entertainment destinations."
At launch, visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of popular Starbreeze VR content in 5K ultra-high resolution and 210-degree field-of-view that only StarVR head-mounted displays (HMD) can deliver. They can step into the world of the Walking Dead where the apocalypse has hit in OVERKILL's The Walking Dead -- Outbreak, battle bots atop a towering building in APE-X as a massive weaponized cybernetic ape, play the legendary assassin John Wick in John Wick Chronicles, or experience an exciting and pivotal scene from Universal Studios' 2017 film, The Mummy, as a Prodigium Agent tasked with capturing the ancient princess Ahmanet in The Mummy Prodigium Strike.
Also, visitors will be able to interact with one another and live the experience together, The Raft requires players to grab their VR guns and work together to defend the swamp against an infestation of supernatural creeps; while gamers will love Payday 2 VR heist, and the challenge to survive a zombie infested hospital in the apocalyptic The Walking Dead Outbreak.
Younger children will enjoy Geminose: The VR Carousel, as beautiful and playful creatures join an exploration of magic, music and dance in their mystical world.
