Supplier: Frontgrid

Paradrop VR will be an extension of iFly's existing indoor skydiving offering

Frontgrid has announced a new partnership with iFly Indoor Skydiving that will see the VR attractions specialist open the first Paradrop VR attraction in the UK.

Set to launch this summer at iFly Basingstoke, Paradrop VR will be an extension of iFly's existing indoor skydiving offering.

It will offer guests an immersive paragliding experience where they soar through mountains, and collect points by flying through targets as they descend. The ride features full range of motion, giving riders complete control over both their physical and virtual gameplay.

iFly UK CEO Simon Ward said: "Our goal has always been to make the dream of flight a reality by giving our customers 'wings' in a safe and fun environment.

"Flying a performance paragliding canopy offers a unique way to experience the thrill of flying, and we're pleased to be working with Frontgrid to offer this new attraction."

"The iFly team were immediately impressed by the compulsive experience offered by Paradrop VR," he added.

Matt Wells, co-founder and CEO of Frontgrid, said: "Paradrop VR will introduce a new, high energy social experience to iFly, who recognise the potential for growth in adventure-based activities and opportunity presented by VR attractions.

"We're pleased to be helping the world's largest indoor skydiving company open-up new revenue streams, and look forward to introducing ParadropVR to new audiences."

Paradrop VR was developed in partnership with dynamic media-based attractions specialist Simworx.
