Defunctland is a very interesting youtube channel that you may think has nothing to do with gaming but stick around. The channel is about documenting and cataloguing all the defunct amusement park rides that have been well known to the public for locations all over the world. These can be ones that simply are no longer operable due to the site closing down because of financial woes, the ride itself being taken out of circulation or perhaps even controversy leading to the machine shutting down. It’s a really interesting channel that I enjoy watching every so often however one thing that the creator of the channel, Kevin Perjurer, has been working on behind the scene is his very own VR experience for these rides appropriately titled “Defunctland”.
Well with the talk behind this VR experience seemingly dying down over the years it’s finally come to light again as the first ever ride in Defunctland is now open! This time it’s one that many people say they had fond memories of, Disney’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and this is just the first of many rides that the creator intends to digitally recreate in VR which will make for an amazing virtual museum of sorts allowing people to recreate old memories and for those who never had the chance to try out the rides themselves to experience the wonder of some of these mechanical works of art. The VR experience is available to download for free from his channel in the description of the video so feel free to check it out for yourself!
That’s all for now, and as always. It’s not just a game, It’s a Life.
