IAAPA 2017 Exclusive: Frontgrid announces two new product launches
POSTED 16 Nov 2017 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
Frontgrid has announced the launch of two new products based on its world-first Paradrop VR attraction at the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Florida.

Paradrop VR - which has already sold its first unit to the Universe Science Park in Denmark - is an IP-protected, world-first attraction that enables riders to experience paragliding. It also features an element of gamification that lets riders score points during their virtual descent.

Paradrop VR, developed in partnership with media-based dynamic attractions specialist Simworx, has released a new version of the ride that is designed to simulate the sensation of hang gliding. It features new theming, including a hang glider canopy, and a handle bar that controls the ride’s movement.

The second launch is an outdoor version of the Paradrop VR, which will enable operators to place the ride outside.

“When we launched Paradrop VR we always saw it as something that would suit an indoor FEC, retail kind of environment," said Matt Wells, CEO and founder of Frontgrid, speaking to Attractions Management.

"Now it can be bought as part of an outdoor package, operators can effectively put it inside a building or put it outside and it’s ready to operate."
