With the wild arctic, they literally just clipped out bits from the polar express and put them together. Maybe they could do the same for eita for christmas.

I have never liked the shows where they have edited down a feature film into a ride film. The entire experience is very disjointed and unnatural. I've seen been on the one for the movie Rio and Polar Express and thought they were both bad.

I'm not against 3D/4D Simulators being based on a film or television franchise, I just want them to create a custom film set in that franchises universe with its own unique story; not a compacted clip show of the original film.

Questor was definitely my favorite with that tunnel scene and the waterfall drops. Corkscrew hill was horrible with the shaking while on the back of a horse. Never got to see KAC, but Europe in the air was lackluster as far as excitement goes. If they could somehow project on a 360 degree screen and have a rotating simulator that would great.

I don't know if this would be within the "spirit" of BGW, but what if they closed the building for a year, gutted and rebuilt, and did a moving simulator shooting ride (like MIB, Reece's Xtreme Cup Challenge) based on a story line of an escaped leprechaun or something like that?

Could still offer a simulator aspect, add in an indoor dark ride element, and have a story that fits the hamlet.

I've long wanted an interactive "shoot-em-up" dark ride in the Europe in the Air building. My fantasy involves a Sally dark ride that relies almost entirely on elaborate physical props, but realistically, simulated graphics like in Darkastle would be the more likely (and feasible) approach.

Regardless, I'd absolutely love some cavernous-themed dark ride centered around Irish folklore. The idea of a more elaborate, more in-depth Boo Blasters on Boo Hill ride makes me drool. It would be so much fun, and a perfect family ride for Killarney.

Shitcan the whole ride idea and open a better pub. Or just keep it closed off until a better idea comes along (Virtual Reality, maybe?). Simulator rides typically suck and none of them age worth a crap. The space doesn't seem big enough to make a dark ride worth anyone's time and I'd rather they sink their money into revamping ailing rides in need of more attention (see: DarKastle).

Just a thought...what if they used V/R headsets for riders? Still keep the main screen for people with mild motion sickness or other reasons that would keep them from wearing the headset. With the new V/R roller coaster in Six Flags Georgia, it seems like this avenue of entertainment would be an interesting addition to theme parks on various styles of rides.

This doesn't make sense on a simulator. The purpose of the VR is so that you experience real world G-Forces and speed while being in a virtual environment. A simulator ride lacks all of that and relying on the video and motion base to trick your mind into thinking you are actually going somewhere. Just doesn't make sense to wear VR with this ride system.

is it just me or does the whole VR on coasters seem like a technology in search of an application?

I kind of thought that, but I'm pretty sure it's just the fad du jour. Remember when every park or mall had a temporary simulator ride in the late 80s/early 90s? I think it's the same thing. It's cheap enough to beta test but will probably prove to be nothing. VR might have it's place in video games and possibly cinematic experiences, but I seriously doubt in 5 years we'll all be wearing headsets while on roller coasters.

I'll be interested when they figure out how to do it without headsets.

Where? Behind the rabbit?

I for one, will not likely ever wear one on a coaster.
