Do you like theme park rides? So does the expert team at On Track Themes; especially when they’re designed in a way that allows the owner to sign off on an experience before construction begins.
When the team at On Track Themes was given the task of designing the interior of a capsule for a theme park ride, they jumped on the opportunity to visualize multiple different design alternates in real-time, at full scale. On Track Themes and Architecture Interactive worked together to create 3D models for a few different seating alternates and proceeded to immerse the owners in the different designs. In a matter of an hour, a hard decision was made on the layout of the interior of the amusement ride, based on line of sight issues, seat orientation, and user experience; all thanks to the immersive Architecture Interactive mock-up.
For this application, the Architecture Interactive team placed physical seats at heights corresponding to the seat height in the virtual model and at the exact location of the seats in the virtual model. Doing so allowed the owners to sit in a physical chair and experience the view that a customer would experience in the completed ride.
Since this 1st phase in 2010, On Track Themes and WorldViz’s Architecture Interactive team have completed a handful of additional VR mock-ups for the high-end entertainment industry.
