There, Orlando will take center stage giving guests a one-of-a-kind, virtual reality experience. One of Orlando’s top experience design agencies, IDEAS, worked in partnership with NASA, GES, ImaginNow, Exline Design and Architecture, and A.R.M to design the experience of a lifetime – the journey to Mars. The ride, which requires riders to wear VR goggles, allows guests to venture through the International Space Station, around the moon and the asteroid belt, all while they’re strapped into a drop tower ride.
