Demo with the wow factor

I started off with a Gear VR, and found the demo "Introduction to Virtual Reality" was quite good to show friends the potential, without getting into apps which you really need to spend time in to get to understand.  It wasn't a perfect demo, as the resolution was lacking slightly but it was OK.
Now I have a Go, and I'm disappointed to find the equivalent app isn't available, and in the one I can find "Welcome to Virtual Reality"  the graphics are very basic compared to what you can get in other Go apps.

What do you use to give a 5 minute demo to a friend?  Has anyone found anything really impressive?

    I don't have a single quick app...
    Henry
    Dead and Buried
    Ocean Rift
    Republique VR

    If there is only time for one, Ocean Rift (or sometimes Henry depending on the person).

    it's super simple, you just point and press ... no need to explain a story or anything, start them off at level 1 and then go to the Alpine level for some "OMG!!!", each track is like a minute or so long.

    Face Your Fears is good for demos. The Cirque du Soleil videos can work too.

    The new/updated Jurassic Park Blue is very good now.

    After the last update the Jurassic Park Blue demo has slowed down a lot on my GO... Is it just on mine? Chapters are not divided anymore, the episode has to be played in full now and maybe 3 Gb of footage are too heavy to be run altogether... Both sound and images keep glitching slightly all the time... It’s a pity because it’s by far the most impressive demo I’ve seen on the GO!

    'Smash Hit' tends to live up to its name when I demo it to people. :wink:
