Musical Ride Virtual Reality
Last June the RCMP Heritage Centre and local company Talking Dog Studios started work on an exciting new project in the world of virtual reality; a 3D virtual reality experience from inside the RCMP Musical Ride. Filmed in Ottawa at the RCMP Musical Ride Training Centre, the finished product invites guests to literally “hop in the saddle” and join the 2015 Musical Ride members as they practice some of the more intricate choreographed movements that they performed last year to the delight of thousands of spectators from across the country and abroad.
Available in both French and English, the Musical Ride in Virtual Reality, sponsored by Nexen, a CNOOC Limited Company, is located in the Preserving the Tradition gallery, exhibit five in the Main Exhibit Gallery Hall. This virtual reality experience is included with admission and available during regular operating hours. Additional headsets and saddles are available for groups of 10 or more who pre-book a minimum of one week in advance.
