Don a VR headset, jump on a playground swing, and be transported inside an experimental virtual reality ride created by the world’s only Thrill Engineer, Professor Brendan Walker, and his team of Thrill Laboratory technicians.
You may find yourself riding on the back of a giant mechanical jellyfish or atop a lumbering robot, you’ll find out when you get there!
Thrill Laboratory is a collective of artists, designers, engineers, scientists and technologists who have been perfecting the art of creating new forms of thrilling experience.
