Description: Face your fear of heights! Bridge Trek provides you with a safe environment to conquer your gephyrophobia or acrophobia in virtual reality. Build your way up from the pillow padded footbridge, to the perilous glass bridge in the sky! A friend of mine confessed a crippling case of gephyrophobia (fear of bridges), so I created a VR “Bridge Simulator” where she could face her fears in a non-threatening virtual environment. The first bridge is only a foot off the ground and surrounded by pillows. Each bridge is increasingly more intimidating; rope bridges, bridges that cross fish-filled water, bridges made of glass. Gephyrophobia or not, it’s pretty intimidating, but you’re only a glance away from the safety of your living room! Conquer those bridges! If you’re a mental health professional, and you’re interested in using Bridge Trek in your work, please reach out to me, I’d love to work with you!

Review: Bridge Trek is supposed to be used as some sort of therapy tool to help people overcome the fear of bridges (Gephyrophobia) or the fear of heights (Acrophobia). The problem is, without any therapy narration or a trained therapist walking you through it in real life this app doesn’t have any use for anyone suffering from those things! Don’t get me wrong, it looks nice and I just enjoyed wandering around as it does look good, but as a tool for someone suffering from phobias like bridges its not much use at all. But hey, I still found it relaxing anyway and a good place to meditate in VR.
