Synopsis The 12 minute VR experience takes you on a fantastic ride, 4,500 years back in time to present the story of Noah and the great flood in a way that has never been done before. Abstract “A Flood of Reality” is a 4d experience at the Ark Encounter theme park located in Williamston, Kentucky. The VR experience takes park guests on a fantastic ride, 4,500 years back in time to present the historical narrative of Noah and the great flood in a way that has never been done before. The story takes place within a time machine where guests journey back to the time of Noah where they witness the building of Noah’s ark, experience the flood, venture inside the ark with the animals, and more—including some exciting surprises along the way! The experience traditionally runs on 4d MX4D® Motion EFX Experience seats while wearing an HTC Vive VR headset. Your seat moves and provides a variety of special effects in coordination with what you see and hear in your headset. The journey begins when you leave the modern-day world, courtesy of P.O.D., a robot that controls the time travel capsule. After a brief introduction, he starts up the engines and your seats lift and begin to shake and roll. See the Ark Being Built Guests fly into the valley and see the Ark construction being finalized. Travel Inside the Ark P.O.D. seeks shelter from the flood inside the Ark, you can experience and see the different animals in their pens. Witness the Flood Guests witness the fantastic flood as it begins with a crack of lightning striking right in front of you! The earth opens up, and the water begins to flood the valley. From Concept Art to 4K 3d CGI Over 50 pairs of animals were created for the experience though there were thousands of creatures on board – both large and very small. Each animal needed to be rigged and animated.
