VOLO: Dreams of Flight: Adelaide Fringe 2024

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️   5 Stars for exhilarating virtual flights where you control your speed by swinging to your heart’s content.

Review by Claire Davill

VOLO: Dreams of Flight is back for this years Fringe and it’s as enjoyable as ever. A combination of old-school swings and cutting-edge technology, you’ll enter a virtual world inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci’s fabulous flying machines and soar high while barely leaving the ground.

The swings are suitable for all ages, as long as you can board, swing, and stop without assistance. Very small kids might not be able to touch the ground – if they are confident with a parent giving them a push to start off they should be fine. We witnessed a small child doing just that – and the smile that lit up their face once they started swinging was proof that they were thoroughly enjoying the experience!

Sessions run for 15 minutes, and the higher you swing, the faster you’ll fly. Take your time to savour the experience, or feel the rush of a shorter, more intense flight.

Your ticket allows you to enter at any time on the day of your booking, and you’ll be asked to choose your flight. Options range in intensity from the more serene/not so high Glider, to the Helical Screw, Ornithopter and finally Parachute. We recommend the Glider for younger children or those not sure how they will react to the VR experience.

You’ll then be led to your swing and fitted with your headset by one of the friendly staff. Then you’re off and swinging! Make sure you look around at the view while swinging. The whole experience is mesmerising.

As our eight year old reviewer said: “I was so happy the whole time I did it!”

You’ll find VOLO on the lawns in front of the South Australian Museum. Tickets are $10 and there are return flight deals if you’d like another go. A wheelchair swing is available for those with mobility concerns.
