The 9D Virtual Reality Roller Coaster

Rio Tinto approached Viewport to play around with some ideas for a fun way to engage their community here in Perth. What’s more captivating than a hydraulically powered roller coaster ride throughout the Pilbara mines?

 

The project required reconfigured the unit, in order to replicate movements and effects in a realistic manner.

 

Custom software was developed within Viewport’s studios to display the 4k stereoscopic footage, along with custom 3D modelling and sound design.

 

The user can freely look around within the simulation - taking you on an immersive rollercoaster ride through Rio Tinto’s Pilbara operations - from pit to port.

 

The VR roller coaster is now at Rio Tinto’s Operations Centre in Perth.
