THE Waterford-based VR Education's 'Apollo 11' virtual reality experience is to become a new attraction at the United States Space and Rocket Center in Alabama.

The centre in Huntsville gets a million visitors a year and is Alabama's top paid tourist attraction. VR Education's 'Apollo 11' product allows visitors experience a simulation of the first moon landing through virtual reality, and is being added to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong's original "giant leap for mankind". Visitors will be charged between $10-$15 (€9-€13) with VR Education getting a share of the ticket revenue.
