THINGS TO DO: Do something different at Holoverse

28 August 2018

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly? Explore the ancient ruins? Have a herd of elephants running towards you? If you want to enjoy an immersive experience then the world’s first holographic theme park, Holoverse, is for you!

Conveniently located in Southport on the Gold Coast, Holoverse is a theme park of 1500 square metres and 40 hologram rooms, each providing 20 minutes of science fiction fun. You can choose one of many virtual adventures to go on - fight alien monsters, swim with holographic turtles, visit the planets or plant holographic vegetables in your holographic vegetable patch.

The holographic entertainment centre is the creation of Brisbane software developers Euclideon, who spent six years developing the technology to create 3D optical illusions and adventure. You think you are touching or feeling everything but it is all a hologram made from atoms of light. This type of technology is usually seen in television shows and movies such as Star Wars and Star Trek.

Holoverse is open to all age groups over the age of six. The attractions are constantly changing with the release of new updates and games happening all the time, you can experience new worlds, wonders and sensations time and time again.

Strapped in with all the latest technology and given glasses (similar to those you'd wear when watching 3D TV) with sensors on the side, you are led into a dark room before the adventure starts and your imagination runs free.

Your brain is tricked into thinking you are a part of the scenario in the wilderness, under the water or at the edge of a cliff. When walking through a holographic wall and turning around, seeing it behind you, your mind is both surprised and shocked, even making the body flinch.

Fly over the Gold Coast

Have you ever dreamed of flying? In Fly Over the Gold Coast you enter a hologram room where the walls turn invisible and the floor disappears underneath you, making it look and feel like you are hundreds of meters in the air. Fly between the buildings as the the sites and attractions of the area are explained to you. At the end you turn into a giant and stomp around the city.
