Virtual Reality Slide

When you combine the magic of virtual reality (VR) with the thrill of Water slides, an entirely new dimension of fun is unlocked. wiegand.maelzer has partnered with aquatic VR experts Ballast to design an advance a VR system that can be adapted to work with new builds and already existing water slides. The secret lies in creating expertly designed content that is accurately mapped to the movements of each slide, controlled by a revolutionary tracking system that is simple to install and to monitor.

The system comes with a unique headset that is comfortable, light weight, waterproof and easy to maintain.
