Paris VR experience ready for take-off

Attraction features actual aerial footage of city

A new attraction launching in Paris at the end of March, will take punters on a VR flight over the French capital.

FlyView launches on 31st March with a simulated flight leaving from the city’s Opéra Garnier neighbourhood.

It takes users on a virtual flight over Paris without even leaving the ground. Visitors to the simulator wear a virtual reality headset for a realistic and immersive flight, taking them over Paris rooftops and the French capital’s famous monuments. Unlike other virtual reality attractions, FlyView doesn’t use a 3D simulated version of the surrounding environment. A drone and seven cameras filmed genuine footage of the Parisian panorama in 360° in order to create this virtual journey through the air. More than simply flying over the city, virtual pilots will turn in different directions, make lateral movements, and experience accelerations and stops-offs during their 13-minute ride. 

The attraction will feature 50 VR jetpacks in an 800 sq m two-floor location. Flights cost €15.
