THE SLIDE: 360 VR experience for The View from The Shard
BRAND:  The Shard
PRODUCTION COMPANY:  Happy Finish
OUR ROLE: Interactive Sound Design

Experience heights of up to 800ft on the city’s answer to helter skelter, the latest addition to the VR experiences at the view from the Shard.  The experience provides a truly immersive multi-sensory slide, skirting round a ‘virtual’ Shard whilst set in a breaktaking 360° view of London, 69 floors up.  Participants are invited to sit on a custom built slide that mimics the VR content, to make the perfect immersive experience.

Happy Finish enrolled our team to infuse the descent with some action audio for the slide, to complete immersion for the visitors.  We designed sound to create a realistic sonic journey, through the various jumps and falls to really capture the speed and fully immerse the slider.  The participants are able to feel fear, joy and excitement throughout their journey, showing the power VR and immersion have over our emotions.

The ride has attracted crowds from all over, including guests from Good Morning Britain, and received a huge amount of press.  This really is an experience not to be missed.
