It seems that Samsung is not leaving any stone unturned in expanding the reach of its virtual reality headset. Now, the company has partnered with the famous theme park giant Six Flags to provide a virtual reality experience to riders that will be powered by the Gear VR headset.

Thanks to the new partnership, riders at nine parks will be able experience the first virtual reality roller coasters in North America. Aided by Samsung’s VR headsets, riders will be able to fully immerse themselves in the 360-degree steep drops, twists and turns of some of the most popular Six Flags coasters.

Speaking from the technical point of view, the virtual reality world will be made possible with the help of accelerometers, proximity and gyro sensors that will convert all the real-life action into an amazing VR experience.

If you want to enjoy the new VR Roller Coaster, you won’t have to wait a long, as it will be launched sometime later this month. It will be expanded to at least nine VR coasters across across the United States by summer.

  1. Sure hope they put a chin strap on the bottom or that headset is going to fly off people’s heads during the ride. LOL

  2. The same Six Flags notorious for making people remove their glasses, jewelry, piercings, fanny packs, etc before riding, is going to allow patrons to wear VR viewers?
