So, here's the Virtual Reality! If the picture isn't already moving or if you'd like it to go in the opposite direction, click in it and drag the cursor as appropriate. Alternatively, put your cursor in the lighter part of the map to the right (I found that hanging in a corridor near the front entrance) and drag it around - fun for ALL the family! You can also "zoom" in at any time by pressing the 'a' key and then you can zoom out again by pressing the 'z' key. At maximum zoom the picture looks a bit 'pixilated' (wasn't that what Cary Grant was once accused of being?) but you get the idea. To reduce this effect and thereby get more detail would involve having a higher resolution picture which would take longer to load on your machine. Life is full of compromises...

The basic VR stuff came from Duckware - there's some interesting stuff over there.

By the way, if all this doesn't work as advertised then make sure you have the "Java Virtual Machine" enabled. You can click here for more information.
