Using the simulation reconstructed from their DNA memory, your team will put themselves in the shoes of the explorers. Find out what happened to the expedition. And more importantly, locate what they were looking for.

AMAZING EXPERIENCES IN YOUR CHOICE
One of the most famous games in the VR world, Richies Plank Experience shows just how immersive virtual reality can be. Starting at ground level, players are encouraged to enter a lift and press a button for a floor. Plank is usually the first button to be tried (its the top one). The doors close and the elevator takes the player to the top floor of the 80 storey building, and on arrival opens the doors to reveal a wooden plank stretching out in front of you.
Its at this point that many, many people just cannot walk out on to the plank, comically showing just how believable and immersive virtual reality is. The player knows they are standing on a sturdy floor inside Centre VR, but their brain and the experience tells them otherwise.
With some encouragement, most people make it out to the plank.
There are some cool other parts to this experience too, including the ability to fly like superman and make smoke patterns in the sky.
A virtual reality must which is included in "Your Choice".
Google Earth is one of the most impressive titles in VR and is possibly the worlds most brilliant model town experience. If you like Wimborne model town or Legoland, you will love Google Earth. Transport yourself to anywhere in the world by city name, street name or postcode, or visit a tourist attraction. Its powered and created by Google, so searching is the easy part.
Visit where you were born, show your relatives where you grew up, or plan your next holiday. Already booked, then recce the area to find out where your hotel, villa or campsite is, the local attractions and all important restaurants.
Google Earth now features Street View, which means you can see highly detailed and accurate views of almost everywhere on this tiny blue planet of ours, made saller with the introduction of Google Earth. You can even take photos during your Google Earth excursion.
Job Simulator is our most popular title, loved by both children and adults, especially school teachers. You can see why, the ability to do whatever you want without any repurcussions in a kitchen office, shop or garage is pretty awesome.
The ability to interact with everything in the virtual world is extremely satisfying and fun, and most players dont even get around to the serious business of fulfilling the task the robot masters ask of them.
Regardless, Job Simulator is easily one of the most popular and returned to titles in our giant library. Vacation Simulator is now also available and features the same humour and interactions of it's predecessor, but in the woods, on the beach, and in other lovely locations. As the trailer says, "it really is a place"
The Blu is a deeply immersive VR series that allows audiences to experience the wonder and majesty of the ocean through different habitats and come face to face with some of the most awe inspiring species on the planet.

Additional options take place on a teeming coral reef and in the very deepest region of the ocean.
