HFR Film in Theme Parks?

I just saw "The Hobbit" in HFR 3D, and it got me thinking about something.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", and its two upcoming sequels, have been/will be made at 48 frames per second. This got me thinking about something: do theme parks already have attractions with elements shot in a high frame rate? Are there any planned for the future?

Star Tours is 48 FPS and King Kong 360 (done by Peter Jackson no less!) is in 60 FPS.

The one thing I had a problem with the Hobbit is if I moved my head sideways, the 3D got blurry. Maybe its just me, but if you are on a moving ride, I would see that as a probelm.
