DUBAI 1 March 2018: Emaar Entertainment has announced that Dubai’s latest and most exciting attraction – VR Park – will open today, March 1, at Dubai Mall.

Blurring the lines between perception and reality, VR Park combines Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality (VR), providing unforgettable rides, journeys and games in an unbelievable two-storey attraction.

Through partnerships with some of the world’s leading VR developers, Emaar Entertainment is delivering an unprecedented and awe-inspiring experience, with the all-new mind-blowing attraction set to transform the VR leisure and entertainment landscape through the breadth of games, rides and experiences to suit all ages.

At VR Park, you’ll feel like you’re propelling down the side of Burj Khalifa in Burj Drop, or hold on tight as your Dubai Drone taxi spins out of control on a rollercoaster adventure like no other!

Adventure activities are for everyone, with a skydiving experience giving aerial views of in Plummet; and a hair-raising Dune Bash experience featuring close encounters with camel spiders, scorpions, snakes and other thrilling creatures.

Allowing visitors to interact with one another and live the experience together, The Raft requires players to grab their VR guns and work together to defend the swamp against an infestation of supernatural creeps; whilst gamers will love Payday 2’s VR heist, and the challenge to survive a zombie infested hospital in the apocalyptic The Walking Dead Outbreak.

There’s something for everyone with a PVRK Café serving out-of-this-world treats, and rides spanning horror, adventure, leisure, a multi-sports arena, and more. Younger children will especially enjoy Geminose: The VR Carousel, as beautiful and playful creatures join an exploration of magic, music and dance in their mystical world.

The family-friendly VR Travel Bus explores cities from around the world, without having to visit an airport; whilst space explorers can man their own spaceship and navigate a world full of aliens and space stations, in RobocomVR.

Emaar Entertainment’s 7,000sqm VR Park is located in The Dubai Mall on Level 2, between Reel Cinemas and KidZania® Dubai. Open from 10am to 11pm Sundays-Wednesdays and 10am to 1am Thursday-Saturdays, VR Park offers free entry for all to explore, and experiences priced at Dh15-45.

VR Park is the latest pioneering attraction to be delivered by Emaar Entertainment, as the entity continues to transform the Leisure & Entertainment sector of the region. Leading partner and superlative content and technology developer, Starbreeze, will premiere four brand-new VR-experiences at VR Park, totalling eight titles in the attraction where several are utilising the high fidelity Virtual Reality HMD StarVR. Alongside additional partners, including ARKUB, Robocom and Virtual Reality technologies, VR Park is paving the way for world-leading innovative and immersive experiences.
