    I love stuff like this! Reminds me of the roller coaster Dynamic Attractions offer, but this is much more simpler and confined to the elevator lift. It's almost like a pre-show but once it's finished you immediately enter the first drop! The gothic concept art needs to happen too.

    Omg yes please.

    This will solve all of the problems VR has. Better loading times, no need for VR headsets, higher capacity(presumably), the fact that you get to see both the VR and the actual ride, everything! This needs to happen now.

    A friend of mine works for Holovis, and when I asked him what exactly it was, he replied with this...

    "Drop tower, coaster and immersive media attraction rolled into 1", I then probed again and he said "Kinda ToT with a coaster".

    Safe to say, I want it in my face.

    That gothic tower looks fantastic and should be built immediately.

    Though, I have my doubts on whether a park would want to pay for a spire that adds 50 % or so to the structural height beyond the top of the coaster, without serving any function with regards to the ride experience. That's a lot of building elements and probably a lot of height approval paperwork just for a tower to look nice.

    ^ What do you mean? As in where did you get the info that the tower would be 50% larger? I've tried to look and can't find it?

    ^I think he means from the concept art at the top. Look at where the coaster track exits - presumably the highest point of the ride -but how much "extra" building there is above it.

    It'll be a very long time, if ever, before we see anything like this built.

    Yeah, what Gavin said.

    Maybe it'd be built without the spire, though. Or with the spire scaled down a lot. Then it wouldn't be so outrageous.

    It's concept art...? Literally a piece of visual media to sell the idea to a client, it ain't a plan by any means - I thought you'd have a plausible reason for the comment Poke ha.

    I wouldn't worry about what the concept art for the ride that's never going to be built looks like.

    I'm sure that if and that's a big if they use this concept, false prospective would be used.

    I think this idea would piss all over shoving VR on an existing coaster.
    Best of both world I think.
