Hersheypark and MajorMega, a Pennsylvania-based virtual reality studio and location-based entertainment company, have announced Hyperdeck, an immersive virtual reality experience for 2020.
Hyperdeck will be offered as part of Hershey’s Chocolatetown in summer 2020. Two 300-square-feet Hyperdecks will create a dynamic virtual world with a full-motion floor and multi-sensory effects like wind, heat, and earth-rattling movements.
The game even continues outside as guests help or challenge players via tablets stationed outside the Hyperdeck.
This announcement was made at the 2019 IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Fla., where attendees could enjoy a live demonstration of the experience.
“Growing up in Central Pennsylvania, our team has loved Hersheypark for years!” said Michael Bridgman, co-founder of MajorMega. “We are beyond excited by the opportunity to partner with a leader in the amusement industry and debut the Hyperdeck at Hersheypark.”
“Throughout our 112-year history, we have always focused on providing our guests of all ages with fun and innovative entertainment experiences,” said Vikki Hultquist, general manager of Hersheypark. “We’re excited to debut Hyperdeck as a first-of-its-kind immersive VR game and the first on the Northeast as part of our transformational expansion of Hershey’s Chocolatetown.”
