Virtual reality comes to Turkish waterpark as Polin debuts enhanced Splash Cabin technology

A new kind of virtual reality has come to a waterpark for the first time after supplier Polin teamed up with interactive experience specialists Lagotronics to introduce the technology.

The first VR version of the installation opened in August, debuting in Turkey at the Aquafantasy Waterpark in Selçuk, Izmir.

An addition to Polin’s existing Splash Cabin technology – an interactive game that allows two players to engage in a water-fueled battle with animated competitors – the addition of VR allows players to enter an immersive environment where they float along streams on a remote island, battling its inhabitants.

"When visitors enter the Splash Cabin and put on their VR goggles, they will believe they truly are lost on a remote island,” said Mark Beumers, CEO of Lagotronics.

“Our interactive hardware is a powerful system, and guests will feel its breadth in this new kind of aquatic attraction."
