"VR Splash Cabin" Fully Immerses Guests into Gaming Experience

Giving parks options is the name of the game as Polin Waterparks in cooperation with Lagotronics introduces a second enhanced version of its new Splash Cabin, this one using VR technology.

September 22, 2017 (Turkey) - Polin Waterparks (Turkey) & Lagotronics (Netherlands) are taking the  experience to the next level with the new "Virtual-Reality Splash Cabin" aquatic attraction. 

Using the latest technology in VR goggles, along with handheld shooters, guests will enter an otherworldly environment in which they will feel they are floating along streams and through villages on a remote island. As they encounter a variety of different situations, they will participate in the greatest water battle of their lives, competing against other players to earn points and "stay alive."

The next level of "Splash Cabin" gaming
Last fall, Polin introduced the Splash Cabin at IAAPA. That version of the game allows two players to engage in a fun, water-fueled battle with animated competitors using an interactive screen and mounted water shooters. Guests don 3D glasses - either Oculus Rift or HTC Vive - and play from inside a beach-bungalow-style cabin, scoring points by hitting moving targets while trying to avoid being hit themselves by waterjets shooting from screen-embedded nozzles.

The first installation of the Splash Cabin was announced last month when it opened at Aquafantasy Waterpark in Selçuk, İzmir, Turkey.

As Polin continuously innovates its product line via its recently certified Research and Development division as and R&D center, it partners with world-leading experts to develop games unlike any others on the market. For Splash Cabin, Polin partnered with Lagotronics (Venlo, Netherlands), a specialty firm that creates state-of-the-art technology and innovative solutions.  

Advantages of the newest innovation
Now, Polin's and Lagotronics' second collaboration - the VR Splash Cabin - will be unveiled, pushing the envelope by using VR glasses and handheld water shooters. For smaller parks, the VR Splash Cabin covers a smaller footprint compared to its 3D Splash Cabin cousin. The VR version requires a space of 3.8 meters long x 3.6 meters wide of space (12.5 feet long x 12 feet wide).

The VR version creates a full 360-degree experience using the highest-resolution virtual-reality equipment on the market. Players will experience being "inside the game" while defending themselves using fully robust and durable water shooters. Players will be doused with water splashes - controlled by Polin's system - according to their game play.  

An interactive experience unlike any other
Mark Beumers, CEO of Lagotronics Projects, says most consumers' experiences to date with virtual-reality gaming have been with home-based consumer devices. "But the VR Splash Cabin allows them to finally feel the power of a true VR experience. When they enter the Splash Cabin and put on their VR goggles, they will believe they truly are lost on a remote island. Our interactive hardware is a powerful system, and guests will feel its breadth in this new aquatic attraction." 

Ali Cansun, Polin's R&D Director, believes the VR Splash Cabin offers guests an experience they won't find anywhere else in the world. "The state-of-the-art hardware, software and waterplay components provide the greatest interactive VR experience possible," he says. "And we're not beholden to any particular company's VR equipment when it comes to the future. As the products improve, we will switch brands accordingly to ensure guests get the best available VR glasses in the world."

Advantages overview

  • Less space requirement compared with the Splash Cabin: 3.8 meters long x 3.6 meters wide of space (12.5 feet long x 12 feet wide).
  • A more fully immersive, 360 degree experience of feeling inside the game.
  • A high-resolution VR experience using the best equipment in the market.
  • Robust and durable shooting equipment.

p.s. Polin will officially introduce the attraction at the 2017 Euro Attractions Show (EAS) at the Messe Berlin Exhibition Center (Berlin, Germany) next week (Sept. 26-28). Polin invites all of its friends and partners to visit its booth (#418 in Hall 18) to experience the attraction in person (albeit without water via the use of VR glasses). For those who have not yet registered for the show, Polin has complimentary passes available. (Contact the company at info@polin.com.tr to get your free pass.)
