You strap on the VR device as you sit in a special seat that uses hydraulics to physically simulate the virtual twists and turns of a roller coaster or Santa's sleigh. You get jerked back and forth, making it feel like you're on a real ride.

It features three seats in a sort of gyroscope. The seats look more like actual roller coaster seating than something for a tech demo.

The final demo, boat racing, is the tamest. It tilts you here and there as you speed through South Australia's Murray River on a 12-foot dinghy.
