Virtual Roller Coaster Ride Cedar Point Owner Will Test Concept This YearReady for a wild — albeit virtual — roller coaster ride?

It could be coming soon. Though it hasn’t been revealed yet which park may see a virtual reality tryout, the amusement park company that operates Cedar Point and Kings Island is ready to give it a go.

The company announced recently that it will try out virtual reality on a roller coaster at one of its theme parks.

According to Cedar Fair Chief Executive Matt Ouimet, the timetable is for a test later this year and that it’s “part of the company’s move to combine technology with its rides,” reports local WLWT-TV.

Cedar Fair operates 11 amusement parks around the country.

A virtual reality experiment might be just the thing to rev up amusement park excitement, though business is not bad right now. Cedar Fair says attendance at its parks this year through June was up 3 percent.
