Fun Spot America in Orlando, Florida, expects to be the home of the first virtual reality (VR) roller coaster in Central Florida, adapting the Freedom Flyer to include VR by Christmas time. The addition is currently being installed and tested.
Four specific seats will have the capacity to allow riders wearing VR goggles to see a different experience. VR Riders will experience an immersive storyline including robots, an overgrown city and the coaster's Freedom Flyer character. The story will be completed during one ride cycle of the coaster.
Visitors will have the option of boarding the ride in its original form or waiting for the designated VR seats. The goggles will be sanitized between each ride.
