The Viking Planet - A Journey back in time

The Viking Planet,Viking History,Oslo,Norway

Norway’s first interactive entertainment center will open 21st June 2019 in Oslo. Here you can achieve many unique experiences based on viking heritage, and learn about the Vikings in a new way. From around A.D. 800 to the 11th century, a vast number of Scandinavians left their homelands to seek their fortunes elsewhere. These seafaring warriors and traders really leaved their mark around the world. 

The Viking Planet will open a 1600 square meter entertainment center located next to the Oslo City Hall, central in Oslo. This will be the first of several Viking Planets to be launched in Norway and abroad in the years to come.

Through groundbreaking Virtual Reality technology, you can now step back more than a thousand years to board a Viking ship and witness a hyper realistic drama that unfolds up-close and personal in VR. In collaboration with Ridley Scott’s production company RSA films and the UK’s Dimension studios, The Viking Planet presents the world’s first scripted drama produced using volumetric capture virtual reality.

With a 270-degree cinema The Viking Planet presents compelling original Viking content in a way never before seen. Through several interactive experiences, you can explore topics like: Ships & Navigation, Weapons & War, Women in the Viking Age, and Religion & Mythology.
