Virtual Reality + Roller Coasters

Are you ready for America's 1st virtual-reality roller coasters?

Check out your nearest Six Flags theme park for the first virtual reality roller coasters in North America! Pre-existing coasters will be equipped with Samsung Gear VR headsets (specially adapted for hygienic use on the attractions), a reimagining of current rides instead of costly all new building projects. Virtual reality riders can choose between a Superman coaster, where they will face Lex Luthor and tour the comic-book city Metropolis, or a New Revolution coaster in a battle with futuristic aliens. Research even suggests that those who typically feel motion sickness from coasters will do well with new VR technology. The combination of environmental sensors and cues with the virtual experience will lessen the inconsistency that typically causes nausea. (Yahoo News, 04.04.2016)
