I was just thinking that something must surely be wrong with the Galactica VR for them still not to have it working by now as it should have been ready for the start of the resin and it's now May. They've had nearly 2 months to get it sorted.
Also as a side note Galactica has been closed for some of the day today and apparently it will be tomorrow as well.
The reason Galactica is down alot this season is the VR itself even though its not operated this season. (Been told by a ride manager a few weeks ago).
And we also know that the Vector VR is being redone, with the possibilty of new videos with the new signs at the exit. What I think is that Galactica is suffering with some electrical problem with the VR this season.
I've asked a ride manager when the VR will be back, She didn't know, I've also asked the social media team, they don't know, and I've emailed Figment, No responce. Also Figment have redone the second segment of VR on DBGT and Shaman and it's rumoured that it's them doing Kraken Unleashed and Galactica has taken a backseat with new content. But it is to be remembered that this isn't like that this isn't like the Six Flags/Mack Media VR where the VR is pre-made with various settings and the video is adjusted to the ride layout, Figment's Vector VR v1 was done by scratch using ~15 different programing platforms(Eg C++ or Java) and used the Samsung Gear VR with the Samsung Galaxy S7's. Whereas now its Pico Neo headsets and probably a new coding program and whilst testing they have discovered a technical problem with installing it, hence its downtime.
Wow, that was a long post for me, I've rambled quite a bit but I hope it explains your question!
