Do the Virtual Reality goggles cause some people vertigo or dizziness?
Your welcome, we look forward to seeing you in Ireland's oldest city, Waterford!
Hi, prolonged use of VR goggles without taking a break may cause some people dizziness or vertigo. The total time within the King of the Vikings adventure is about 20 minutes, so it should not cause any ill effect. We have been operating the King of the Vikings for over a year and we have not had any issues with visitors suffering any ill effects for its use.
Hum....I suppose that question can only be answered by someone that suffers vertigo. I do not . . . so I will add this: While in the VR Goggles, you will be sitting the entire time. at no time will you stand. There are several pillar supports that come through the benches, so you can set a shoulder against the pillar if you choose a seat there that may "anchor" you to the ground. Also, you have the option to "lift" the goggles from your face to reacquaint yourself with the reality of the ground for security. And finally, there would be nothing that would prevent you from simply removing the goggles should the experience become intolerable, offering immediate relief. Yes, this "ruins" the experience, but you will not be forced to suffer through it. Hope this helps.
