Virtual Reality Coaster Coming to Six Flags

Six Flags is teaming up with Samsung to blend real roller coaster rides with virtual reality. Riders will strap on a Samsung Gear VR headset and then ride the coaster as usual. Instead of seeing a real life view, riders will experience a totally new 360 degree ride inside the headset.

 

 

There are two versions of the ride planned – New Revolution Virtual Reality Coasters and SUPERMAN Virtual Reality Coasters. Revolution will immerse riders in a futuristic battle to save planet earth from an alien invasion. SUPERMAN riders will get what they think is a leisurely tour of Metropolis until things take a surprising turn thanks to the evil of Lex Luthor.

Here is where you can find the new Revolution rides:

  • Shock Wave at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, opening March 10 to Season Pass Holders as a special sneak preview;
  • Dare Devil Dive at Six Flags Over Georgia outside of Atlanta, opening March 12 to Season Pass Holders as a special sneak preview;
  • The New Revolution at Six Flags Magic Mountain near Los Angeles, opening March 26 to Season Pass Holders as a special sneak preview;
  • Ninja at Six Flags St. Louis in Eureka;
  • Steamin’ Demon at The Great Escape in Lake George, New York and
  • Goliath at La Ronde in Montreal.

Here is where you can find the new SUPERMAN rides:

  • SUPERMAN Krypton Coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio;
  • SUPERMAN The Ride at Six Flags New England in Agawam, Massachusetts; and
  • SUPERMAN Ride of Steel at Six Flags America in Upper Marlboro, Maryland

The wireless VR headset is secured with three straps – one around the head, one over the head and a chinstrap, along with a safety lanyard. There will be no additional fee for using the headset and it is an optional accessory.
