King of the Vikings VR Reviews
Hi, My wife, my mother (86) and I really enjoyed the tour. The VR is really impressive, it even has a blaa in it, which I tried to catch. The guide, Anne Marie was excellent at setting the scene. And ... more »
geweldig om te zien in een zeer oud straatje, midden in centrum iets naar de bourevard. daar achter heb je viking museumpje en daar door heen loop kan je naar een tuin met een oude viking hut en soort... more »Great to see in a very old street, right in the center something to the bourevard. Behind it you have viking museum and walk through it you can go to a garden with an old viking hut and kind of small village how she used to live there. Very nice to see and owner seems and dress like a viking.
This was amazing!!!! Not what I expected at all. Virtual reality at its best. Literally felt like I was either going to fall off the world or drown!!!! 😁 If you don't like heights or rats, close your eyes!!! Wouldn't recommend for very young children though. But was €10 well spent. Gifts are a reasonable price too. Well done to all concerned. Only downside was the lack of signposting - we walked right by the entrance!
This is a hidden gem of tourism in Ireland let alone Waterford. It is a virtual reality experience where you go into a replica of a viking longhouse, sit down and put on a VR headset and headphones. Then it becomes absolutely outstanding. You find yourself sailing along with viking ships and having viking warriors talking at and through you. You are up in space with the moon and mythical dragons floating in front of you. And you monastery libraries as they write the history of the Vikings. They can only accommodate 10 at a time so advance booking is recommended. The only recommendation I would have is move to a larger venue. Every historical site should look to emulate this.
