In Our Earlier post, We showed how Samsung Virtual Reality Coaster works, and what are the key features involved in the operation.
Following the debuts of The New Revolution Virtual Reality Coasters in parks near Dallas and Atlanta, Samsung and Six Flags did a soft launch for another VR Roller Coaster for Season Pass Holders at the Six Flags Magic Mountain theme park near Los Angeles on March 26.
As Six Flags’ official technology partner, Samsung is pioneering immersive Gear VR roller coaster experiences in North America. With the Gear VR headset, powered by Samsung’s flagship Galaxy smartphones, The New Revolution riders find themselves transported to a futuristic battlefield—and thrust into the front line of thrilling battle to save the planet from alien invasion.
The New Revolution at Six Flags Magic Mountain will open to the public on April 21.
How A Virtual Reality Roller Coaster works:
- Riders are the co-pilots in their own fighter jets as they strap in for air-to-air combat. Taking in the view around them, riders will see other aircraft in an underground secret bunker.
- Taking in the view around them, riders will see other aircraft in an underground secret bunker.
- As the aircraft moves to a landing pad, it begins to launch its thruster engines, lifting the craft straight up through the roof.
- During the ascent, riders can test fire their weapons using the world’s first-ever interactive gameplay technology on a roller coaster.
- As riders clear the roof, they realize they are on top of a skyscraper and about to launch off the edge of the building diving straight down on the first drop of the ride
- The aircraft races through the city until reaching the edge of the skyline where riders see the mother ship hovering above.
- The mother ship is heavily protected by drones and the mission is to get past the drones, fire on the mother ship and destroy it.
