We have been fans of Orlando City Soccer Club since their rise to the MLS, and over the years, we have continuously upgraded the Lion and Pride’s promo bus, the “Kickin Cruiser”. The current promo bus is full of Next Level installs and upgrades such as TV’s, Backup Camera, Lights and More!
This year, the team’s marketing department asked us if we could completely redesign the inside of the bus to accommodate fans for an immersive Virtual Reality experience where the fan gets to Virtually be in the team huddle inside the Lion’s locker room and follow them onto the field for practice.
The installation required the Next Level team to hustle and fabricate a storage room, two floor boxes, install new vinyl wood floors, Rigid Industries black lights(for purple City color), new recessed lighting and switches, and floor to ceiling wall graphics.
Hardwood Floor and 2 Low Benches.
Rigid Industries LED black lights and white recessed ceiling lights with dim switch.
Storage Room Access through Hidden Door. Wall Covered with Graphic Wrap.
After we finished a day early, the team couldn’t wait to show off the build to the Orlando City street team and marketing department. They came to pick up the bus wearing Lion merch and lots of purple. Two of us got to sit in the chair and put the Virtual Reality goggles on inside the bus and it felt like we were in the locker room with the soccer players. After looking around for about a minute and a half in 360degree world, you end up feeling like you follow the players out onto the field.
It’s very cool and hope you have a chance to experience this like we did.
