Samsung and Six Flag’s New Mixed Reality Roller Coaster Ride Looks Absolutely Insane

Samsung and Six Flags presented a handful of virtual reality coasters last year, but received little fanfare due to the excessive amount of visual stimulation—lacking reality, basically. This time, the duo are one-upping the effort with a world’s first roller coaster experience that will hopefully strike a perfect balance between virtual and reality dubbed, The New Revolution Galactic Attack. The augmented reality thriller will allow riders to use the Gear VR’s passthrough camera feature that boasts responsive graphics superimposed onto the real world.

More specifically: “As riders drop at high speeds, the mixed reality view changes to a completely immersive, virtual reality environment and a fighter spaceship cockpit materializes and envelops the riders into a tunnel of light,” said a Six Flags spokesperson as per Engadget.

Nonetheless, get a glimpse of the ride above and let us know if you’re willing to get into the cockpit.
