The virtual reality revolution at theme parks across the United States continues.
On Wednesday, VRJournal learned that Six Flags Entertainment Corporation and Samsung Electronics America are eager and ready to escalate their partnership for the advancement of virtual reality theme park entertainment.
Per the latest details, the companies have renewed collaboration on virtual reality roller coasters with the grand reveal of a “bold, innovative twist” on the experience at Six Flags parks.
Nearly one year ago, Six Flags and Samsung teams up to roll out what was billed as being North America’s first Virtual Reality Roller Coasters using Samsung Gear VR.
Taking things further in this new year, for the first time ever, riders will now be offered a “one-of-a-kind mixed reality experience that only Six Flags can deliver.”
What’s in store?
Another world’s first—complex gameplay, where riders make key decisions during the course of the ride that can affect their scoring at the end. The New Revolution Galactic Attack makes its world debut at Six Flags Magic Mountain, near Los Angeles, and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, near San Francisco, offering park guests a thrilling, fully immersive ride of their lives as they battle to save the planet from an impending alien drone invasion.
“Six Flags is proud to be partnering with Samsung to develop the newest, most innovative thrill ride experience in the theme park industry,” said Brett Petit, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Sales. “This mixed reality technology is truly groundbreaking and like nothing our guests have ever experienced. Six Flags and Samsung changed the game last year with VR on twelve roller coasters and now we are breaking new ground yet again.”
