Introducing Galactic Attack Virtual Reality Coaster
The New Revolution Galactic Attack mixed reality coaster opens at the park this summer! This cosmic experience on Shock Wave introduces the first time augmented reality has ever been offered on a virtual reality coaster. The complex gameplay puts you in control of your ride to shoot targets and make key decisions that affect your score.
Wearing Samsung Gear VR headsets powered by Oculus, you’ll be able to see your surroundings and your friend sitting next to you. You’ll start off by checking your weapons and fuel, and practice shooting at some targets on the way up the lift hill by using the touchpad on the side of your headset.
As you drop down the first drop, a swirling wormhole opens up in front of you. While experiencing all the dips, dives, twists, and turns on Shock Wave, you’ll be flying through space dodging meteors and floating battleship debris. An army of flying alien drones will be attacking your spaceship with lasers and light missiles before you make it to the mothership. Turn your head during the ride to position your bulls-eye over the enemies to fight back and score points!
This state-of-the-art experience and new technology will be offered for a limited time this season and is free with park admission. Season Pass Holders can get an exclusive sneak peak during the technical rehearsal of the ride February 25-26 and March 4-5. The ride will open to the general public beginning March 9 and run through Memorial Day weekend.
