One gaming theme that never fails to gain positive attention in the amusement business belongs to dinosaurs. People of all ages are fascinated by the creatures, although the main property where they get attention both on the silver screen and among arcade cabinets is Jurassic Park.
2015 saw the release of Raw Thrills’ Jurassic Park Arcade, a game that still is one of the top earners on the market three years later. With the IP turning towards Jurassic World in recent times, and the upcoming arrival of Jurassic World 2 to theaters, you might have been wondering if anyone in the amusement business might be dabbling with it. The answer, as the headline to this post reveals, is yes.

I had been hearing from some Dave & Busters employees about the upcoming arrival of “some kind of Jurassic World VR game” since April. They were not sure who it was that was making it however as even with units appearing at locations this week, there wasn’t an indication of who was involved.
Today, The Virtual Reality Company (VRC) pulled the curtain back on Jurassic World VR Expedition to reveal that it is their brainchild. Let’s just copy & paste from the website in regards to a description of this motion simulator VR experience:

Jurassic World VR Expedition  is an interactive cinematic virtual reality (VR) game that transports players to the visually stunning prehistoric jungles of Isla Nublar, where fans will engage in a film-inspired Jurassic World epic rescue adventure. Jurassic World VR Expedition makes its debut today at more than 100 Dave & Buster’s family entertainment centers, making it the biggest location-based VR launch to date. The VR game launches ahead of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, which arrives in theaters on June 22, 2018.

The VRC development team includes several Academy Award-winning and nominated animators, visual effects artists and technicians. Written
