Watch what happens when you ride a VR roller coaster"That's totally awesome!" Or, "That's going to make me puke". Which is it? Six Flags adds VR headsets to some roller coasters, and we ride the first VR coaster in North America at Six Flags Over Georgia.
[SOUND] My god. Here we go. [SOUND] [MUSIC] [SOUND] [MUSIC] We have the virtual reality rollercoasters, a dedicated virtual reality experience wearing a Samsung Gear VR headset, and you actually get completely immersed into the virtual world, we have two different types of it at our Six Flags parks, you either have the Superman virtual reality coaster, or like we have here at Six Flags over Georgia and Atlanta, this is the new revolution at Dare Devil Dive. [MUSIC] We have added a box to the back of each roller coaster train for the new revolution at Dare Devil Dive. So these boxes that we have added have Bluetooth technology so that when your Sitting down. And you have your virtual reality Samsung Gear VR headsets. That now syncs up to the blue box which then knows exactly where that particular train is on the track at all times. [MUSIC] My [SOUND] My God [MUSIC] So I would say I know now the VR rollercoaster is not for me, I'm glad I tried it so I know it now. So I really encourage people to kind of try it so they know it but I would not ever do it again. I'm glad I did it, I'm never doing it again. I honestly really loved it, just the fact that you can't see the ride in front of you I think that just takes it to the next level. And I love the fact that you're looking at something else. And I rode it twice, one with it and one without it, and definitely with it I'm screaming a lot more. [MUSIC]
