Race VR Coaster, a new for 2018 attraction, at a theme park ride expo in Orlando, Florida.
Appropriately, Orlando, Florida is home to the annual IAAPA Attractions Expo that sees theme parks show off new rides and the companies behind the scenes present new technology. Merlin Entertainments is showcasing The Great
bricks. Germany’s VR Coaster’s patented technology syncs virtual visuals created by UK Figment Productions with Mack Rides’ roller coaster’s twists, turns, drops and climbs. It is expected to create a wild ride full of thrills, spills, surprises and humour.
If anyone is attending the IAAPA event, the previews will be taking place on November 15 from 10:30am to 2pm at Booth #2272 (VR Coaster) within Booth #2269 (Mack Rides). For everyone else, it will be a case of waiting until next year to check out this innovative new attraction.
