China’s VR Star theme park is a vision of the future, but not for Western audiences

Originally called the Oriental Science Fiction Valley, it was thankfully renamed prior to opening in 2018 to the VR Star Theme Park.

If there’s one country in the world that’s going to go bigger and more outlandish than everyone else it’s going to be China. 

In its bid to modernise and develop the country the Chinese government heavily invests in all sort of projects and industries, one of which is virtual reality (VR). 

While there are lots of theme parks in America and Europe beginning to employ VR on certain rides, China went one step further several years ago by building a theme park purely dedicated to VR. Originally called the Oriental Science Fiction Valley, it was thankfully renamed prior to opening in 2018 to the VR Star Theme Park.

Costing an estimated $1.5 billion to build and located in Guizhou, a province in southwestern China, the VR Star Theme Park features a massive assortment of VR rides for visitors to try, from more traditional theme park experiences where you’re sat on a ride to those that allow increase interaction, such as the new Beat Saber Arcade Machine.

While the park has been open for almost a year, from a western perspective little has been seen or heard about this extravagant complex.
