The UK’s Highest Virtual Reality Experience opens at The View from The Shard

Guests can test their nerve this summer 800ft above London on our heart pounding, adrenaline filled VR experiences!

*FREE until 4 August!*
This week we have introduced two new exhilarating Virtual Reality experiences on our open-air Skydeck – just in time for the summer! For a limited time only visitors to London’s most iconic attraction will be able to test their balance on ‘Vertigo’ or enjoy the thrill of ‘The Slide’ travelling at up to 100 miles per hour… if they dare!

‘The Slide’ is an adrenaline-fuelled 360-degree virtual reality experience that swoops and slides through the city’s skyline. The hair-raising journey takes visitors on an extreme multi-sensory journey and is finally answering the call of Londoner’s to turn The Shard into a helter skelter!

‘Vertigo’ sees the building fall away, leaving you suspended in the air, walking across The Shard’s early infrastructure and balancing on scaffolding of the stripped back construction of Western Europe’s tallest building. Romeo the fox – The View from The Shard’s mascot that represents the intrepid real fox who was discovered on level 72 during construction of the building – also makes an appearance as guests take instructions from the construction sites foreman.
