Flying Scotsman VR Experience

Celebrate 100 years of the world's most famous steam locomotive with a stunning new virtual reality immersive experience.

To mark the occasion of the centenary of the Flying Scotsman, we have commissioned a brand new VR experience – It will allow guests to become immersed in the world of Flying Scotsman, adding a touch of magic as they step through real-world doors, onto the huge scale platform at Kings Cross Station to come face-to-face with this celebrity engine.

From there, the VR journey follows a narrative inspired by the incredible history of the famous steam engine, the first to circumnavigate all around the world and back again, bringing guests back to the real world but revealing a final twist: they have arrived at Edinburgh station – completing the Scotsman’s most iconic route from Kings Cross to Edinburgh.
