This paper proposes "Virtual Rope Slider", which expands a rope sliding experience by stimulating sense of sight, hearing, wind and vestibular sensation. A rope slide in a real world has physical restrictions in terms of scale and location whereas our "Virtual Rope Slider" provides scale and location independent experiences in the virtual environment. The user is able to perceive a different sense of scale in the virtualized scenes by multi-modal stimulation with physical simulation.
