D-BOX Technologies and Ubisoft® Have Joined Forces to Create A Virtual Reality Experience at the Rabbids Amusement Center

On August 29, Ubisoft invited families to come and explore the crazy, fun-filled world of the Rabbids. Located at the Mega Centre des Sources in Pointe-Claire, the Rabbids Amusement Center, based on the phenomenally popular gaming franchise of the same name, offers a playful environment that combines technology, creativity and physical activity.
 
This collaboration between D-BOX Technologies (TSX : DBO) and Ubisoftoffers usersapermanent virtual reality center where they can experience a unique, hyper-realistic world inhabited by Raving Rabbids. Armed with a virtual reality helmet, patrons can follow the extraordinary shenanigans of the Raving Rabbids for a few minutes.  By combining the fluid motion of D-BOX’s high-fidelity seating technology and the talents of the content creators at Ubisoft, this unbelievably immersive trip delivers an incredible rush of adrenaline for kids of all ages.
 
The Rabbids Experience
The Rabbids have repaired an old submarine to get to the North Pole so they can be closer to the moon. To their surprise, the submarine starts to fly, and when they let go of the controls and start playing tag with each other, it crashed in Montreal. Top researchers began observing these rabbits and concluded that only children could understand their language and behavior. If you like adventure and excitement, welcome to the Rabbids Amusement Center! BWAAAH!
 
The main attractions include:
  • Virtual D-BOX  Zone: Two virtual reality chairs for lifelike immersion in the world of the Rabbids
  • Submarine: This activity zone features a modified submarine that includes three levels, with obstacles, slides and more!
  • Water Treatment Plant: Explore the inner workings of the plant with two ball pools, ball cannons and a climbing wall. 
  • Laboratory: In this space designed to stimulate creativity, visitors will find a wealth of inspiring activities including a Pixel Art wall and giant-size building blocks. 
  • Farm: This themed zone is specially laid out for toddlers aged from birth to 3 years. 
  • Three themed rooms for birthday parties: Celebrate with the Rabbids in the Candy, Princess or Pirate rooms. 
  • The Dining Area: Features a top-quality menu created by Chef Jérôme Ferrer of Restaurant Europea. 
  • Souvenir Shop: Offering a selection of Rabbids products to continue the adventure at home.
