Get ready for something new and something old. This year’s Christmas tram has some new tech on board as young riders will be able to experience the Virtual world. For the first time the experience of what it would feel like to be a tram driver wearing virtue head set. And they have also kept the Christmas play happening for children that may not be ready for the Virtual head set. Last year was fantastic as the tram was packed singing Christmas carols with Santa.
The experience of the Virtue ride is something different this year. It is great for those kids that have thought to have grown up for the traditional Christmas plays. They will know be able to drive the tram in the virtual world and control the speed of the tram while the real tram does not move at all. Parents may just want to join in on the fun but hey it’s a kid thing.
They also kept tradition alive with younger children as they too can hop on board for a special ride with Santa and helpers as they travel on the tram. They will be able to enjoy the experience the fun riding on the trolley as the crew puts on the Christmas Play. His elves tell some funny jokes and gets everyone wondering what happens next in the story.. Santa puts on his magical charm in the show getting everyone to sing along with him. It's a good way to see the city of Osijek with the singing and laughter for the whole family.
