Could virtual reality rollercoasters be coming to Dubai?
Time Out asks could virtual reality rollercoasters be coming to Dubai as Six Flags theme park and Samsung strike a new VR technology deal
Just days after construction work on Six Flags Dubai kicked off, it seems more and more likely that the iconic theme park could also be home to some of the world’ first virtual reality rides.
Technology giants Samsung have partnered up with the theme park franchise in the US to offer thrill seekers the chance to use their Samsung Gear VR and Oculus in tandem with their rollercoasters.
Called the New Revolution Virtual Reality Coaster, the ride comes equipped with wireless headsets that make the high resolution imagery and 360-degree view of the ‘glasses’ even more real, not to mention the high speeds, twists and turns of the ride itself.
