In recent years, the use of virtual reality (VR) has been a promising opportunity to improve the immersive experience in virtual environments. In this study, we explore the effectiveness of immersive VR experiences on an individual’s creativity. To do this, we first identified the characteristics of VR that are closely related to creative performance. Considering these factors, we designed and implemented the interaction method and the three outdoor and indoor virtual environments (Wilderness, City Park, and Office). We evaluated the effectiveness of the virtual environments with 12 participants. The user study results show that outdoor and indoor immersive virtual experiences improved their creativity skills. We concluded by analysing how factors such as simulator sickness and perceived workload influence creativity levels. Moreover, our study showed the potentiality of using immersive virtual environments to enhance individuals’ creative performance.
