Description: Experience 1915 history in Virtual Reality. Talk to authentic era characters on a busy street corner and then on a trolley car as it crosses the river and heads downtown, earning points by talking to people and observing landmarks. You feel immersed in 1915 as characters tell you aspects of the daily life, and as Model T’s drive by amidst accurately portrayed historical buildings that still stand today. Your goal is to earn 100% of the possible “conversation” and “look-at” points by talking to the locals and seeing the historically important sights.

Review: For those who don’t know the ‘Edmonton Trolley Car’ is a historical streetcar ride over the High-Level Bridge in Edmonton, Alberta. It was first opened on October 6, 1979 and is considered one of the most historic streetcars in the world. Some people find it romantic, others love it for its history. This interactive app lets you ride that car, but not as it looks today, but as it did when it was first launched back in 1979. Unless you have some interesting in this streetcar or its history there is nothing for you here, but for those who do you should definitely give this a go. Sure, it’s not as good as riding the real thing, but for many of us its good enough.
