SIX FLAGS TO ADD VIRTUAL REALITY

Six Flags Entertainment Corporation has announced that Virtual Reality (VR) using Samsung Gear powered by Oculus will be incorporated into nine coasters at Six Flags parks.  Riders will have the opportunity to wear Samsung Gear VR headsets to experience the rides in a totally new dimension.  This technology will allow riders to battle aliens or fly like Superman.  Disorienting?  Probably, although the VR headsets will purportedly synchronize with the layout of the rides so as to avoid unexpected twists, turns and bumps.  The nine coasters involved are Shock Wave at Six Flags Over Texas, Dare Devil Dive at Six Flags Over Georgia, the New Revolution at Six Flags Magic Mountain, Ninja at Six Flags St. Louis, Steamin’ Demon at The Great Escape, Goliath at La Ronde, Superman Krypton Coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Superman The Ride at Six Flags New England and Superman Ride of Steel at Six Flags America.   Photo courtesy of Six Flags.
