Imagine flying through the Gold Coast with your feet firmly planted on the ground – dodging buildings, darting between trees and over the ocean learning about our iconic landmarks along the way.
Holoverse in Southport, is the world’s first hologram adventure and it must be experienced to be believed.
The feeling is unlike anything else – you’re standing upright but feel as if you’re weightless.
The holograms are extremely realistic and were created by a Brisbane-based business with photos taken from a helicopter flight over the Coast.
Upon entering a hologram room, equipped with goggles, headphones and a throttle-like controller, you’ll place your feet in their designated spot. The floor and walls seem to disappear and are replaced by a 270 degree view of the Gold Coast.
With the controller you begin to fly above and through buildings and trees, over the shoreline and past parked cars.
To keep things interesting, there are rings placed throughout to fly through, in the sky, down low, in the middle of buildings – up down, and all around – and you get points for flying through them.
Fly Over the Gold Coast is the latest hologram experience at Holoverse but you can also go underwater and swim with the fish, jump down holes and visit Africa!
It’s perhaps the most hi-tech amusement attraction in the world and unlike anything you’ve experienced before.
For children and adults alike, Holoverse comes highly recommended for the most fun you can have flying solo, while standing on two feet!
