What is an XR Ride?
An XR Ride is an attraction where guests can experience super realistic worlds brought to life through next-generation VR technology that uses sight and sound to create an enhanced sensory experience through gravitational force and other entertainment elements during the ride.
Doraemon XR Ride: Nobita’s Sky Utopia
According to The Universal Studios Japan website, the new limited-time Doraemon XR ride follows the story of the film, as guests climb into a small aircraft to join Doraemon (a cat-type robot) and Nobita (A 10-year-old elementary school student) on a grand tour of Paradapia, a utopia in the sky where everyone lives in happiness. Guided by Sonya, the aircraft is soaring over the islands of Paradapia when suddenly Marimba turns the peaceful tour into a thrilling adventure with a high-speed chase across the sky.
Experience the excitement of adventure with beautiful visuals perfectly synchronized with a thrilling coaster ride while using Doraemon’s famous tools, such as the “Small Light” and the “Doko Demo Door” that we’ve all dreamed of using […] setting the stage for an exciting, fast-paced adventure.
