I mean, Galactica seems like it's had a fair bit of bad luck, in comparison to some of the other rides... if it's not the VR causing problems, it the actual ride! Let's hope that it's sorted soon and that's it for the rest of the season.

While I did find the new headsets easier to put on than the old ones, that's where the improvements finish. After some fiddling with the focus wheel the startup screen with the Galactica logo was as clear as it was last year however when the VR started it all went downhill.
I found the video to be of a far worse quality than last year and the audio was bordering on abysmal. I also had some syncing issues which really disoriented me halfway round the circuit but they corrected themselves by the time we got back into the station.
When Galactica was introduced last year I did enjoy it (minus the drastically decreased throughput) but it has gone massively down in my estimation. I understand they had some issues with the old headsets but I struggle to comprehend why they went for such a cheap alternative. I certainly won't be in a rush to ride Galactica with the VR again and I wouldn't lose any sleep if it were to lose it altogether within a couple of years.
