Drop of Doom VR Opens May 5!
Drop of Doom VR Drop Tower opens May 5! This brand new experience on Zumanjaro: Drop of Doom introduces one of the first permanent drop tower VR experiences in North America. Using Samsung Gear VR headsets powered by Oculus, you’ll enter a 360-degree, interactive battle to save the futuristic city from giant mutant spiders.
As you board the ride, you’ll find yourself teetering off the edge of a sci-fi helicopter drone surrounded by armed forces. Take a high-speed vertical ascent up 100 stories to tower above massive city skyscrapers. When you look down below, you’ll see the city under siege by giant spider-like creatures.
Floating high above the city, you’ll engage in an interactive battle against a giant arachnid creature that spews baby spiders that virtually crawl up your body! You’ll be caught in the virtual gun-battle shooting at the insect infestation as other drone helicopters and space-age debris explode all around you. In the midst of your battle, you’ll take a 100-story plunge straight down between the skyscrapers, rushing face-first to the ground far below. Your final showdown involves a spider the size of a van, teeth slashing, as you try to escape before the beast attacks you.
This state-of-the-art experience and new VR technology will be offered for a limited time this season, free with park admission. Pass Holders can ride May 5, 6, and 7 from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The general public can ride after 3 p.m.
