Super 78 Introduces Mushroom VR Review and Approval Tool for Themed Experience Venues

Los Angeles, CA, USA — Super 78 Studios is pleased to announce the development of Mushroom VR, its newest proprietary technology innovation. Mushroom VR is a groundbreaking review and approval tool for any form of media, especially for immersive multimedia content created for themed experience venues, including museums and theme parks.

Mushroom VR and the Oculus Rift deliver an incredibly accurate and collaborative multi-user media review experience. The entire creative team meets and interacts in a shared virtual space, no matter where they are in the real world, dramatically improving upon standard 2D “screen sharing” review applications.

For media within themed attractions and other environment-specific content, Mushroom VR brings together media with 3D architectural spaces, practical scenic elements, and live show effects.


By equipping each user with revolutionary annotation tools, Mushroom VR brings a pixel level precision to the review process. With Mushroom VR, every participant has a flawless photographic memory. Users can watch any projected media in 2D or 3D, on any screen size or shape, pausing, rewinding and fast-forwarding at will. Mushroom VR has already proven itself in the field. As Brent Young, Super 78’s President and Creative Director, explained, “We began creating Mushroom VR the day we received the Rift’s DK1. We were able to use it in 2013 during Movie Park Germany’s production of The Lost Temple, the world’s first full field of vision ‘Immersion Tunnel’ attraction. Before any construction began, all of us in Los Angeles, Germany, and the UK were able to sit in the ride vehicle and experience every detail, including the vehicle’s motion programming. Removing the need for expensive full-scale mock-ups and international travel saved the client hundreds of thousands of dollars, and shaved months off the schedule.”

Dina Benadon, Super 78’s CEO, added, “Mushroom VR pushes the collaborative media review tool to a whole new reality. In 1994, the theme park industry was buzzing about virtual reality and now, 20 years later, the promise of VR is finally being realized.”

Mushroom VR is currently being offered by invitation only. To apply as a Mushroom VR beta-tester, and to stay current with release date announcements, please visit:
