Active holiday specialist Neilson is using virtual reality technology to allow customers to ‘have a go before they go’ at either windsurfing or skiing.
The 360° virtual reality headsets, which use Oculus Rift technology, use real video footage from a Neilson Beachclub and a Neilson Ski holiday which, combined with rumble pads and wind machines, to bring the experience of windsurfing and skiing to life for up to 90 seconds.
The simulator roadshow will kick off at Westfield Stratford on Saturday June 27 and Sunday June 28, before heading to the Bullring shopping centre in Birmingham and to Portsmouth.
Neilson has reopened its ten Beachclubs across Turkey and Greece for this year’s summer holiday season including its newest property, the Vounaki Beachclub in Greece. All guests get inclusive activities and watersports.
