Live Park 4D World Tour - World's First Virtual Reality Theme Park Opens in South Korea


South Korea can now boast a brand new theme park entitled "Live Park 4D World Tour" that was brought by the media entertainment firm named d'strict.

The park features 65 attractions that are available on an area of 10, 000 square feet (929 sq m). Inside there is a large number of different interactive displays along with several artistic installations.

Each visitor wears a RFID wristband that allows the displays in the theme park to identify them. Kinect sensors detect the person's movements, voice and face.

A lot of attractions in the pavilion allow users create an avatar of themselves and them interact with it and engage in a virtual adventure, which is represented using 3D video, holograms, and augmented reality technology.

Here are some of the attractions:

Ender Mirror: one can create an avatar and interact with it

Live360: the world's biggest interactive 360 degree stereoscopic theatre that allows users to follow their avatar across an interactive story that has more than one ending

Live Square: this attraction allows users to play games with their avatars inside a 150-meter (492-foot) wide projection square

Live Holo: nice holographic displays built by artists from around the world, including Korean artists

Syno Star Performance: in this attraction users are free to arrange a show for their avatars on an augmented reality stage

Mega Live Event: the whole theme park becomes a night spot, with DJs, events, and performances

The Live Park 4D World Tour opened at the KINTEX in Ilsan, Gyeonggi-do, Korea. The developer of the project looks forward to creating more permanent installations outside Korea, including such countries as China and Singapore. Further plans include the expansion of the park overseas.

Below you can see several attractions in action.
