Consumers looking for an immersive vacation experience can enjoy visiting a tropical island as if they were a Tom Hanks' character from the film Castaway thanks to a company called Docastaway. The travel brand lets fans of the film experience what it is like to be stranded in a remote location far off in the sea. The experience is entirely immersive, offering consumers a chance to see what it would be like to have to survive on their own.

The Docastaway experience lets consumers customize the vacation to be as basic as they'd like or have a few necessities to ease the strandedness. Travellers can choose to have to have bamboo structure accommodations or nothing at all while they hunt for food and drink on their own with nothing but a knife, spear gun and fishing tools.
