Park News - (8/30/14) A crazy experiment has been done at Europa Park where a professor working at the University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern approached Mack Rides with the idea of merging a roller coaster physical experience with enhanced visuals provided by an Oculus Rift VR headset. Mack thought it was worth looking into and gave them access to try it on two of the coasters at Europa Park: Pegasus and Blue Fire.
The first tests were done back in April and kept secret, but they’ve been working on perfecting the experience and have since made more than a hundred test rides and made some great discoveries along the way to create something they are calling the VR Coaster. The first video showing off our first peek at the project is now live at VR-Coaster.com with the promise of more to follow. This could be amazing.
