Knott’s Berry Farm Opening New Multiplayer VR Experience
Cedar Fair Entertainment and VRstudios is opening the first permanent installation of a free-roaming, multi-player VR experience in a U.S. theme park. VR Showdown in Ghost Town; the new custom virtual reality aka VR experience, will officially make its debut on April 1st exclusively at Knott’s Berry Farm.
“VR Showdown in Ghost Town” will be a custom, immersive, and interactive, VR attraction inviting guests to embark on a time travel adventure transporting them to a futuristic version of Knott’s western town of Calico. Players will be met by robotic creations and embark on a daring mission with other groups of players to defend the town.
VR Showdown In Ghost Town gameplay runs approximately 3 and a half minutes perfectly combining virtual reality with competitive gaming elements. Armed with state-of-the-art wireless virtual reality headsets and futuristic blasters, multiple players will compete against one another for the highest score and bragging rights, as part of this immersive adventure, while striving toward shared team goals. At the end of the VR competition, guests will be able to view and compare scores with their fellow opponents.
“We are always looking for new and exciting ways to entertain our guests,” said Christian Dieckmann, Cedar Fair’s Vice President of Strategic Growth. “By using a free-roaming system, we can take full advantage of the capabilities of VR and let our guests be the stars of the show. A majority of people have not yet experienced VR, and we anticipate there will be a lot of interest from guests to have their first taste at our park.”
