Defunctland’s VR amusement park revives a long-dead Disney ride

By tracy

Obviously, nobody’s in a rush to hit the theme parks these days. But if you’re feeling the Disneyland itch after being cooped up for months, you can now ride a long-forgotten attraction from the comfort of your desk—no queuing required.

Over on YouTube, Kevin Perjurer’s Defunctland has been busy cataloguing classic, often long-dead theme park rides and attractions. Shortly after the channel debuted in 2017, Perjurer teased Defunctland VR, a project that’d let you pop on a headset and experience these shuttered rides for yourself.

Three years of relative silence later, and Defunctland’s first attraction is open for business. First opened in 1971, Disney World Orlando’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea has been fully rebuilt in Perjurer’s virtual park, sporting audio pulled from the original ride. The sub itself is fully functional, right down to flip-down chairs you can sit on to peek out at the aquatic animatronics through the window.

While intended as a neat little VR showcase, Defunctland VR is also fully playable in 2D, with a spacious little pre-ride lobby area to explore. The whole thing can also be experienced through a 360° YouTube video.

As it stands, Defunctland VR is a neat little historical artefact.
