An interesting tweet has appeared
today showing that the VR headsets have seemingly been removed from at least one of the trains on Kraken. Kraken Unleased has been having issues with its VR element for a while now, however it is somewhat of a surprise to see it gone completely. At this stage it is not known if the removal is permanent or just a temporary mesure to rectify the issues the VR is having, however I've seen quite a few comments from people who would be quite happy to see the VR gone permanently.
If the removal of the VR is permanent, that will mean it will have lasted less than a year, something which will undoubtedly be disappointing for Seaworld given the amount they invested in it. I've personally never been a fan of VR on any rollercoaster and do kind of hope that it is gone for good and other places will follow in removing VR.
