Over 300,000 Users! How Stratos VR Became one of the Most Prolific VR Tourist Experience!

Updated: Aug 21, 2020

It's been a while since any of us have been able to experience our favorite tourist attractions. One of these, the Seattle Space Needle,has since reopened in coordination with COVID-19 safety policies. We are excited to see our friends back in action and are hopeful to see our VR bungee jump come back soon.

Prior to COVID, the Space Needle had over 300K participants for our Virtual bungee jump, called Stratos VR. The solution allowed participants to bungee off the top of the Space Needle and used a photo realistic landscape with dynamic elements to create an experience unique to each visitor. Stratos VR was in operation for 18 months, for 10 hours a day and hosted an average of 1,000 thrill-seekers a day. With those numbers, it became one of the most prolific VR tourist experiences in the world!

You can read all about Stratos VR on this page along with the 2 other great collaborative solutions we built (custom Photo Animation and AR mementos).

So what makes StratosVR so special?

Maybe because of its photorealistic setting, overlooking one of the most beautiful cities in the US, but we are biased here. Here's a couple of images showing a blend of the real and the virtual.
