Zumanjaro to get VR experience

Jackson, New Jersey, USA

Six Flags Great Adventure announced that Zumanjaro, the world’s tallest and fastest drop tower, will become Drop of Doom VR for a limited time. Beginning May 5th, riders will have the option of battling giant spiders high above massive city skyscrapers in a fully-integrated virtual reality experience on the 415 foot (126m) tall free fall tower.
Park guests will become pilots of a futuristic gunship under attack by mutant spiders during the interactive ride that features a vertical ascent while teetering off the edge of a helicopter. A high-intensity gun battle against a giant arachnid, spewing baby spiders that virtually crawl all over the rider’s body, is followed by a 10-second plunge at speeds up to 90 mph that concludes in a final showdown with the giant spider.
