Six Flags Great America’s B&M Hyper Goes Virtual.
Today the park announced plans to add the option of a virtual reality ride to Raging Bull.
With the addition of this new technology, Raging Bull is the first hyper-twister Virtual Reality ride experience in the world.
With the use of Samsung Gear VR powered by Oculus, riders will ride the 202-ft, 70 mph coaster packed with twists and turns all while stunning visual graphics transport them into a virtual world blended seamlessly with the motion of the ride.
Park president Hank Salemi:
“Raging Bull combines a 20 story drop, speed and intense twisting track configurations to make it the most popular roller coaster in our park. By adding this Virtual Reality experience, guests will be thrilled by this coaster in an entirely different world. It will be the most amazing and creative ride event we’ve ever debuted – we just keep innovating to give our guests the best theme park experience in the world.”
Though not available to ride yet, the new enhancements will debut later this summer with 2016 season pass holders as the first riders.
