Presented by Studio Go Go
VR thrill ride creators, Studio Go Go, bring you this exciting da Vinci-inspired virtual reality playground swing experience.
Volo celebrates the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci: his fabulous flying contraptions, his studies of flight, and his pioneering work on optical instruments. Climb aboard a playground swing, don a VR headset, and take flight in one of four award-winning Leonardo da Vinci virtual flying machines. Flap and soar over cliffs as an Ornithopter bird-person; ascend to join a psychedelic aerial ballet in your Helical Screw; shoot into satellite orbit from a renaissance cannon; or bank and weave in a Glider across extra-terrestrial landscapes.
