Samsung's Virtual Reality Rollercoaster!


Fasten your seatbelt... Are you ready for the ride of your life?

Shoppers at the York Designer Outlet got more than they bargained for last weekend when they were given the opportunity to experience the ultimate virtual ride.

We partnered up with Samsung to showcase the amazing capability of the Samsung VR headset through a 4D roller coaster experience. Shoppers were invited to buckle up and ride one of Alton Towers most famous rides; Oblivion. Complete with moving rollercoaster chairs and a fan, Samsung successfully created one of the most realistic virtual reality experiences on the market. Although hurtling around at speeds of 70pmh is not to everyone’s taste, over 150 people took advantage of the experience!

With other out of this world experiences available on VR including scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef, or taking a walk through the Amazon rain forest we are now able access things that were previously thought to be impossible.
