Dubai Successfully Achieves Virtual Reality World Record
17 October, 2016
Dubai World Trade Centre successfully achieved a Guinness World Record for most participants riding in a virtual reality roller coaster in one hour at GITEX Technology Week, putting Dubai on the map as a global hub for VR innovation and earning a place in the history books. Powered by Samsung, 461 GITEX participants strapped on Samsung Gear virtual reality headsets powered by Oculus, while being thrilled by a visual roller coaster presented in a 4DX theatre. Organisers had expected 250 people, and smashed through the record overwhelmingly with nearly double the number.
