Eurostar, the high-speed train service linking London with destinations in France and Belgium, has announced an onboard virtual reality experience that aims to make the journey both more immersive and more entertaining. Eurostar has developed specially designed headsets that connect through the on board entertainment system, with riders’ personal Apple or Android devices to deliver a unique experience. As the train enters the tunnel underneath the English Channel, travellers put on their headsets and watch as the roof of the virtual train transforms into a glass ceiling, revealing an underwater world of “sea creatures, sunken treasures and mysterious sea-scapes.” The virtual journey is called ‘Eurostar Odyssey’ and is guided by two virtual underwater explorers, who provide entertaining stories of pirates, mermaids, and gaming elements.
