The Twilight Saga: Midnight Ride
One of the most technically-impressive attractions at Lionsgate Entertainment World that Framestore worked on with Thinkwell Group is 'Midnight Ride', an exciting group VR experience that sees visitors mount motorcycles to join Jacob Black and his wolfpack in a journey through the forest to hunt down newborn vampires.
Award for Outstanding Achievement
One of two rides based on The Twilight Saga at Lionsgate Entertainment World, the project which Framestore has delivered for Thinkwell Group, the experience’s motorbikes are mounted on CAVU Designwerks' state of the art motion bases and riders use custom-designed VR headsets that place them inside a virtual reality world. The motion control is integrated seamlessly into what’s seen inside the VR experience so when a rider pulls the throttle on their bike, they both see and feel the sensation of accelerating as they speed through the forest alongside Jacob care of the visually-exciting 90fps real-time virtual media created by Framestore.
'We needed to design a ride that would completely immerse visitors. So we worked out a way to make the physical motorbike experience as authentic as possible allowing them to interact with the virtual environment in their own way.'Gavin Fox - Creative Director
