Busch Gardens Williamsburg Names 2018 Virtual Reality Simulator "Battle For Eire"

While Busch Gardens Williamsburg previously announced that their 2018 addition would be a new virtual reality simulator themed around Ireland, we didn't have an official name for the ride.  As of today we now do, and it is Battle For Eire - Action VR Ride.

The theme park has also started to introduce fans to the world that the ride will take place in, and just what their main mission will be - battle to save the Magic of Ireland.

Setting out to help the Otherworld, passengers will "team up with the last fairy guardian, Addie, and set out to rescue the sacred Heart of Eire.  Hang on tight as you soar above the lush landscapes and mystifying powers of the Otherworld.  Prepare to battle the dark forces.  Will you be a hero?  Take flight and fight the evil Dark Lord, Balor, to bring light to the darkness.  Test your courage and send your spirit soaring on this one-of-a-kind, virtual reality thrill."

A new series covering the development of Battle For Eire has also debuted today.  The first post alone is filled with tons of details about the efforts that are going into the creation of the attraction.

This will be nothing like the experience that Europe in the Air, the park's former simulator ride, gave riders.  Now guests, let by Addie, will move fluidly with the virtual world around them, creating a seamless experience unlike any other.

The park promises to continue to update us on the ride's progress as it is made!
