There are many different types of virtual reality experience to be had. One of the most basic types of virtual reality is known as the diorama. This situation arises where a 3D environment is created and it enables people to observe the world from a third-person, outsider, perspective.

Another common type of virtual reality is first-person experience. This enables customers to be more involved in the virtual reality world and they can move freely and explore the universe they have entered in the form of an avatar.

An interactive virtual environment is very similar to the first-person experience with the addition that the customer has more options and features available to them. There is more interaction with other characters within the universe and customers will be able to communicate and respond to the other characters. Often customers are given tasks to complete which enable them to build up scores to add further interest to the virtual reality experience.

‘Riding on rails’ is a unique experience that enables customers to be transported through the universe. Customers will be seated for this particular virtual reality experience and can watch whilst the environment surrounding them changes. Common riding on rails experiences include roller coaster rides, giving customers a thrill, where the customers will feel that they are on a ride, but in actual fact seated static in their position. Alternatively these particular experiences can be less eventful with slower motions and movements.

Social virtual reality enables customers to interact by speaking with other users and avatars within the universe, creating an exciting social experience for all involved. Game and virtual reality lovers will surely have an enjoyable experience and hours of fun.
