In New York City, a company called CVJTF Group has created a series of immersive experiences based on military field simulations, called Covert Venture. The experiences, which range from saving the president at an Air Force One crash site to performing undercover operations at the Kremlin, are guided by former members of Special Forces.
Though the “risks” seem real, these extreme expeditions unfold in a controlled environment, insists Timofey Yuriev, founder of the New York-based Covert Venture Joint Task Force (CVJTF). Mr. Yuriev’s company collaborates with former intelligence experts on simulated military like expeditions that give participants elite-style training as well as tactical driving and survival skills.
As appetites for edgy immersive travel experiences grow, one New York company is offering trips worthy of an action movie.
