Cross-Channel high speed train operator Eurostar is to offer passengers an ‘immersive and unprecedented’ on-board virtual reality experience this summer.
Primarily aimed at children and accessed through the on-train entertainment system using a smart device or via headsets which will be available onboard, Eurostar Odyssey will create a virtual glass roof for the train. This will enable passengers to experience a Jules Verne-style adventure exploring a simulated world of fish, mermaids, sunken pirate treasure and a giant octopus.
'Travellers still wonder if they can see fish in the Channel Tunnel, and we look forward to turning their dreams into reality’, said Eurostar Commercial Director Nick Mercer.
