Cutting-Edge Technology Promotes Fun, Fitness and Fantasy
First there was virtual reality, then there was augmented reality – now, Urban Air Adventure Park is proud to present the world’s first and only Immersive Reality Arena.
A month after being named one of Entrepreneur’s top 100 franchise companies in America, Urban Air Adventure Park, the world’s leader in active indoor family entertainment, recently unveiled its latest attraction to guests at the growing company’s Southlake, Texas location. The state-of-the-art technology for the arena was created in the Urban Air Innovation Lab and is designed to engage both the bodies and imaginations of its users.
It works like this: Get in the Game! Upon entering, guests are transported inside a fully surrounded 360° degree digitally map immersive environment with all arena walls and trampoline floors instantly activated with awesome gameplay imagery and cinematic sound. State-of-the-Art sensor technology created by Urban Air Innovation Lab, allows for fast moving players and fast flying objects like balls, to interact with the gameplay story and influence characters in real life and in real time. This is a truly unforgettable immersive, interactive gamified experience! For instance, guests will throw squishy SPLATTERBALLS to splatter surrounding walls with paint for a fun paintball experience or save Urban Air’s across the planet by destroying invading alien spaceships with planetary themed fire balls and breakout your way through multiple cosmic dimensions.
