VR Headsets on a Roller Coaster?

Edited: January 15, 2016, 11:50 AM

It's coming to Alton Towers, as the English theme park rethemes its AIR coaster.


Update: Missed this one earlier. A VR overlay is coming to Universal Studios Japan's Space Fantasy coaster, as part of its annual Cool Japan anime/manga event.

I've never had a problem with motion simulators, but putting that on a roller coaster where I can't anticipate what happens next sounds a little nauseating, especially on a flyer.

I hope there is the option of not having to wear the headsets as Vr can be a little disorientating. Then add on top off that having it on a roller coaster. However I think alton towers have taken a good move to get more visitors after the incident last year. Also I presume it won't cost that much to do not like having a whole new ride.

I really want to try one of these VR coasters but until Great Adventure does something (99.999999999999% Unlikely), I won't be able to try it out.
