‘Hold your breath, make a wish, count to three, and you’ll be in a world of pure imagination’: just like Charlie in the Willy Wonka film, children and adults alike will be able to escape for a little while from the everyday and soar into a world of Virtual Reality (VR) where everything is possible at Ellel's Virtual Experience Centre.
Using quarry wood and its environment, we will combine the natural landscape with new technology to create 'a first of a kind' attraction. From the comfort of secure pods, the rope bridges and zip wires overhead transport you through a high quality virtual experience as you and your imagination fly or walk round the quarry, travelling back in time to when dinosaurs ruled the world. Through a fully immersive, free-roaming and interactive Virtual Reality experience, you will travel back through time for an extreme safari of dinosaurs in the wild.
GAZE UP AT THE TREE CANOPY TO SEE A MESMERISING 35 METER ARGENTINOSAURUS TOWERING ABOVE YOU. WANDER ROUND THIS GENTLE GIANT AT YOUR OWN PACE OR ENTICE HIM OVER BY PICKING UP A BRANCH FROM A NEARBY BUSH TO FEED HIM
YOU CAN ALMOST REACH OUT AND TOUCH HIM AND HE WILL TAKE THE BRANCH RIGHT OUT OF YOUR HANDS TO FEED IN FRONT OF YOU
You will be fully immersed in our incredible Virtual Reality with stunning wrap around sound and multi-directional movement. Each self-contained pod transports you into another world. You will be able to race across untouched landscapes and dive deep into unexplored oceans on an action-packed, multi-sensory 4D motion platform. Ride into the wilderness that showcases our breath-taking planet. Motion platforms with stereoscopic technology create a sensory extravaganza of spectacular special effects and beautiful visual scenery.

AR WOODLAND EXPERIENCE
We need a learning system that is scalable and wildly entertaining so we can awaken children's curiosity for learning and make learning addictive.
There is a need to put into action new learning solutions that maximise fun for a wide age range and are typically extremely quick to grasp. Our AR woodland experience does this and much more. It also leverages the power of physical movement to create fun, by simply moving around the village and raises the arousal level promotes exercise and can improve mood.
How does it work? – To play the AR Woodland experience you download the app onto your phone which allows you to search for and see the virtual birds, mammals, butterflies, beetles, reptiles, plants and fungi that are scattered around the village. You need to be physically close to a woodland creature’s location to see it on your mobile screen.
The AR Woodland experience uses augmented reality technology – the game overlays the creature image on top of video from your phone’s camera, so it looks as if the creature is floating in the real world. When you find a creature, you try to catch it by swiping an on-screen ball at it. The simplest aim of the game is to catch them all. To do this, you’ll have to wander around the village because different types of creatures are scattered throughout. You can easily share snapshots of creatures you’ve collected and where you found them on social media sites like Facebook and Instagram.
Connecting with others - The most powerful part of the game’s design is how it cultivates social engagement. There are several design choices that make for increased collaborative fun and interaction. Players have the motivation to communicate with one another and share locations of creatures, engaging in deeply collaborative rather than competitive play.
The AR Woodland experience demonstrates how augmented reality connects people to one another and their physical environment.
That forms a stark contrast to the typical stereotype of video games as socially isolating and encouraging inactivity.
