Neilson will be showcasing its ‘Have a Go Before You Go’ windsurfing and skiing simulators to members of the public in shopping centres across the UK this summer.
The simulator road show will kick off at Westfield Stratford between June 27-28, giving shoppers a chance to sample windsurfing and skiing for themselves without leaving London.
The experience uses Oculus Rift technology with 360° virtual reality headsets using real video footage from the operator’s Beachclubs and Ski holidays which, combined with rumble pads and wind machines, brings the experience of windsurfing and skiing to life for up to 90 seconds.
The company has reopened its ten Beachclubs across Turkey and Greece for this year’s summer holiday season where guests can enjoy inclusive activities and watersports, such as windsurfing, wakeboarding, tennis, mountain biking, sailing and kayaking – all with qualified instructors and tuition.
They’ve also added to their ski programme for 2015/2016 with new properties and an inclusive Mountain Experts ski guiding and coaching service.
After London, the simulators will be travelling to the Bullring shopping centre in Birmingham and to Portsmouth to celebrate the America’s Cup.
