    Translation:
    I'll admit, though I'm pretty cold on the whole VR concept, the themes and imagery being sold on this sound more inventive than usual. VR Coaster tweeted in response "This will not only be action, it will be art. Huge production value!"

    I don't hate this, anything to improve that piece of :emoji_poop: is good news in my opinion.

    I hate VR and wish it died, but I gotta say, those eyes are actually kinda cute.

    If the art is anything to go by and the art direction will continue down the watercolour/paper style, I think this will be absolutely incredible to be fair.

    I am also LIVING for the decals on the glasses.

    ^Upcharge.. Hell yeah!
    Less people are likely to try it if they have to pay extra, which will keep the wait times down. :)

    I was at a press-event today to test out the new VR on Dæmonen.
    I've been one of the more skeptical people regarding this new trend, but this was the first time I actually tried it myself.
    And it's pretty much exactly what I expected it to be, it's laggy and unsynchronized and there is barely any effect in my book.

    They mentioned that they were still finetuning it, but I honestly can't see it improving it by that much.
    I think in order for this to work properly, it'll need to be perfectly synched, the graphics need to be great and it should just be completely seamless and I think it'll be a couple of years before the technology is ready for that.

    I will give the park credit for choosing to make a more stylized film, than the omg-monster-blaster-:emoji_poop:fest ones we've seen from Six Flags for instance.

    Also, initially it was only supposed to be available in the back row, but now it's three rows of the train...
    Have a pic:

    It is the front three rows, or the back three? Please tell me they didn't put it on the front row... :(

    Don't think it's on the front row. If they're only doing three VR rows then the front row must be untouched as there are 6 rows in total and the back two look fine from that photo :)

    I'm really looking forward to seeing the art direction they eventually went with because the styling of it in the concept stage looked excellent.
