Sensorama is pleased to announce the launch of VIX, Brazil’s newest attraction, a 24 person ride that takes passengers on a mesmerizing underwater voyage. During the feature ride, guests will strap in and begin a sensory journey. As the ride accelerates through a narrow passage of land, guests will feel their hair blowing in the wind, simulating the sensation of levitating through thin air, subtle forest fragrances are filtered into the space as guests journey through the forbidden forest, while soft hints of mist are emitted once the ride plunges towards the deep ocean. All culminating into an unforgettable immersive experience felt long after the ride is over. VIX delivers breathtaking cinematic content by using multiple 4K ultra high resolution projectors, which give an uncompromising image fidelity, brightness and resolution. The system also provides an unparalleled riding sensation with a panoramic immersive screen, custom designed for this project. The combination of six thousand pixels, uncompressed video, an 18.3 3D audio system, immersive special effects and synchronized movements with six axis motion of freedom provides guests with a natural, vivid and immersive experience in flying, gliding and speeding through magical landscapes.
VIX is a cutting edge simulation ride that transports guests to an underwater world filled with special effects such as movement, wind, mist, heat, smell, 360 degree audio and ultra-resolution imaging. It was installed at Shopping Praia da Costa, one of Vila Velha’s premier shopping and dining locations. The mall led by Walter Cavalcane, CEO of the Sá Cavalcante Group, blends business and art to form a community asset, with an impressive collection of restaurants, embedded technology and active public spaces.
