I tried the fly over Taiwan on iRideTAIPEI VR (virtual reality) experience at Nanshan Breeze Center Mall Xinyi and highly recommend. Twenty minutes of VR flying over Taiwan. Really beautiful and maybe should be one of the first stops for friends visiting Taiwan to give them a perspective. Only 20 seats available so buy ticket first or make appointment reservation online. Standard price NT$480 and they have some discounts like buy one get one. www.iridetaipei.com
It may even give people that have lived in or been around Taiwan alot a whole new appreciation. It did me, and I’ve helicoptered all over Taiwan.
I went on it during CNY holiday and it was awesome. The mall was packed but there was no line for iRide. It’s just like Soaring Over California at Disney’s California Adventure, but it’s the Taiwan edition. The ride is good for both visitors and locals, who will sure to recognize most of the places/events featured on the ride. It was a moving (in both senses of the word) experience!
