‪Brilliant virtual reality experience!‬
ספט׳ 2020
‪Brilliant virtual reality experience! You learn a lot. The viking-style "guide" was informative and an arresting sight. Beyond the virtual reality there's not much else, but worth it.‬

Good afternoon Rene Many thanks for coming to visit the world's first Viking 3D Virtual Reality experience. Our professional Vikings who guide you through the experience really enjoy the interaction with our guests. I'm not sure what more you were expecting from a 'virtual reality' experience, our Viking guides are very informative and it is situated in a replica Viking house situated within the Viking Triangle. We thank you for your feedback and when you come back again, you'll be surprised at how much you missed the first time around.

‪Really great experience. They use the VR tech so well. Highly recommend it. Went in August and felt completely safe as they followed all Covid safety guidelines. The staff were also excellent & very kind. It was my favourite thing we did in Waterford.‬

‪Since coming back from my trip to Waterford, I’ve been raving about this experience. Loved the Viking lodge you sit in and can remember everything I saw in the VR world really vividly. Thrilling to see forts, battles, ships and Viking life through their eyes. Definitely worth doing :-) Kudos to the two women running the show too - welcoming and knowledgeable. Thanks!‬

Good afternoon Many thanks for taking the time to visit Ireland's oldest city, ‘Veðrafjǫrðr’, (Waterford), and of course, the King of the Viking's, the world's first Viking 3D virtual Reality adventure. It is the best way to see and hear about the Viking invaders. No matter what age your are, this experience will bring our Viking history alive and makes history fun to be part of and I'm delighted that you really enjoyed the experience. I will certainly pass on your comments to the Vikings in King of the Vikings! We do hope you come back again soon and take more time and see what more Waterford has to offer.

‪A brilliant virtual reality telling of the history of the vikings in Ireland. Those worried about VR ‘motion sickness’ should not worry - the effects were excellent, but not nausea inducing! Well worth a visit.‬

‪Good VR‬
אוג׳ 2020 • זוגות
‪It's a virtual reality experience. The effects were excellent and very informative about the history of the vikings in Ireland. Unfortunately the VR goggles were all smeared and found difficult to read the writing. I pointed this out at the start and he tried to clean them but still not very clear. Didn't want to hold other people up so just kept moving them around to get a better focus. They weren't very busy so should have ensured all the glasses were clear in advance. A bit pricey for a half an hour experience also. A good experience however if glasses were clear.‬

Good morning Fiona Many thanks for coming to visit the King of the Vikings, the world's first Viking 3D Virtual Reality adventure. We really appreciate your positive comments about the attraction and the history of the Vikings. I'm very disappointed that you were given a headset that the lenses appear to have been smeared. You didn't mention what date you were at the King of the Vikings, while we may appear not to be busy, we have had to reduce the numbers who visit at each session. All of the headsets are completely sanitised after each use, using state of the art equipment from Cleanbox Technology, a CX1 medical grade unit. The lenses should not have been smeared and I will take this up with the team and see why this happened. I am sorry your experience was not up to our very high standards, as we have received high ratings from our visitors and are in receipt of the TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Award 2020 'Best of the Best' which is awarded to only 1% of all attractions in the country. Go raibh míle maith agat!
