Most of us human beings have the fear of heights, although undoubtedly, those very same heights could offer a sense of excitement and thrill. This work, "Jack and the Beanstalk", attempts to encapsulate the experience of such thrills through immersing in a virtual reality game while interacting with a climbing rope device. As the name suggests, the game is deeply rooted around the the fairy tale, "Jack and the Beanstalk". As such, the game presents a high quality multisensory experience by providing auditory stimuli and vibrotactile feedback that also invokes a sense of insecurity (of heights) to the participant.
