VR Coaster - Bringing Mobile VR to real Roller Coasters

ThomasWagner
Level 2
Hello everyone,

after one year of researching the combination of VR with real roller coasters, we've now revealed our patented commercial concept that will make this whole thing viable for a robust worldwide implementation. It mainly targets mobile VR devices and solves pretty much all of the common issues that usually came with public VR installations.

Check out our new video for the details:




Here's also a visual explanation of the whole concept:



At the moment, we are entirely focussing on the Gear VR. Developing for this device is great fun and it's really impressive what you can do on this hardware.
As we're concentrating on mobile hardware, we have also created all our 3D assets in a way that is suitable for mobile platforms. Our plan is, of course, to bring coaster versions of our Gamesmold mobile games to this system, starting with Spooky Hoofs 3D (that is still under development), Blood Roofs, Shadow Vamp and of course customized VR rides that will be created especially for the parks who will apply this system.

Together with our partner http://www.mack-rides.com, we've presented this system at the IAAPA fair in Orlando and we're already receiving enormous interest and support from the industry. So, I'm quite confident that you'll be able to test this amazing kind of experience on a roller coaster near you soon...   ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Also, feel free to follow us at Facebook:

Best,
Thomas

I've been dying to try this since I heard about it. I live in Orlando which is kind of theme park central, and there's even a moment in the coaster experience where you can see what looks suspiciously like a distant Epcot. Want!

The global signing tool is not available anymore to the devs. So he would have to submit an updated version to Oculus to release on the store, if they want to sell it but not sure if Oculus would allow roller coasters in the store of fear of motion sickness. But they still should and put a warning sticker on it that it may induce motion sickness.

Noone has one besides the devs and it seems the app is only available for their rollercoaster ride in Europapark and other parks, where you can rent a Gear VR and ride on a real rollercoaster with it synched.

They havent released an updated version for the pubic, probably also because Oculus doesnt allow roller coasters in their store yet. But maybe they never intended to release it for the public only for the jam and their park.
