All about the Virtual Reality kit in the Dolphin & Seadell Bars. Well, it’s all working OK and at no cost at all until after the end of this month (June). After that, it will be at the going rate – still looking into that but seems like £5 for 25 mins. This facility is going to be popular, I’m sure. We like to keep very up to date with tech as you know.

10/5/19 – Update

10/5/19 Just been assessing the remittance notices that incorporated the question about free wifi for next season in return for a small increase in the siterents. The result was a 55% approval for this proposal (of those who expressed a view). Although a fair number of people had no preference either way. So what this means is that this will go ahead and there will be a small increase in the siterents in capital terms for next season, as explained before). The service will cover multiple devices (up to 4 at the same time). Then in the Dolphin & Seadell Bars we’ve gone for Virtual Reality availability. The latest stuff, just headsets that don’t need to be plugged into phones or computers. It’s being trialled for the next couple of weeks on a “free” basis. After that we’ll have to be a bit more commercial (the going rate seems to be about £5 for 15 minutes). But a useful facility I think if you want to walk the streets of far off locations, swim with dolphins, join animal migrations on the plains of Africa or whatever, all without leaving Yarmouth! Only one of these headsets on hand yet but more coming if there is a clear demand. Then we’ve set up a more up to date system on the bar videos so that we’ll have more regular televised features. That will help on the rainy days when you can’t be in a deckchair on the beach. Nothing unsuitable. Probably on a short notice basis, depending on the weather, but will be publicised (& should be able to accommodate special requests). That’s it for now.
