Virtual reality experience gives people the chance to take flight on Apollo 11

NIXA, Mo.-- 50-years ago, three Americans changed the course of history. Michael Collins, Neil Armstrong, and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to land on the moon.

Through technology and gaming, people in the Ozarks will get to experience the lunar landing, through a virtual reality experience. Questledge Adventure Center, in Nixa, offers a limited edition experience inside of the Apollo 11.

The newly offered virtual reality experience will allow people to experience the iconic moment in time through a High Definition cinematic or interactive activity.

Debbie Moore, owner of Questledge, says it's an experience like no other. The sounds and voices used in the adventure are from actual recordings throughout the spaceflight journey.

"It can bring a lot of new experiences to people who wouldn't have ever experienced it before," explained Moore.

The virtual Apollo 11 mission can run anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour.

"You feel the full experience of it. It's so exciting; it's really fun," said Katelynn Donovan, a virtual reality user.

While completing the mission is no easy task, Donovan said that it's one history lesson that flies by in seconds. "Learning about it in History book? Not as exciting as actually experiencing it," said Donovan. "It's not as exciting as actually experiencing it."

Moore said that the Apollo 11 virtual reality experience will be available for the next couple of weeks.
