This theme park is one of the first taking an adventurous step into integrating VR into their rides, allowing patrons to choose their own virtual experience to view when riding down a waterslide!
The biggest challenge for VR on waterslides is that every user slides at a different speed.
“We had to develop a reliable tracking system that can measure where riders are on the slide to prevent motion sickness,” said Ballast CEO Stephen Greenwood in an interview with VRScout.
We all hope this is just the beginning of what we can expect from submerged immersive technology in the future.
