Re: SW8

yep that's what I said earlier in the posts. all the timber walls close to the track round all the corners! or could add to ride if you cant see the other track (where you are going)

Re: SW8

I don't know why they don't just buy a couple of flat rides they cant be that expensive compared to other investments. easy and simple to increase the ride count with minimal outlay and work.

Re: SW8

Hey folks, long time stalker new poster. Been playing around with Nolimits today. Not perfect and a little artistic licence used but may help to picture the possible layout. https://www.dropbox.com/s/pthyjf0k2hb9ef1/screenshot-2016-06-01-18-41-30.png?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/ygdszcs0puu9pf3/s...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

not to put a downer on it, but im thinking this ride might end up with lots of break downs. if it is using that much technology. im just thinking computers, windows has encountered an error and had to shut down! and I hope you don't get some head sets not working so you cant sit in seat 3 or 31 or s...

"Ghost Train doesn't necessarily move anywhere (it's complicated) and is a longer, more psychological and filmic experience." "The HTC Vive is at least as good as the best headset out there. VR is all about how you track movement - the relation of your head and body therefore needs to...

Re: SW8

I must admit I was at first a little disappointed with the layout when I first saw it. But yeah with woodies its all about the open cars and air time. which I guess can be achieved well without going too high. the feeling of going fast can be achieved with a more open cart. or those plans could be t...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

I mean the train is a fake front on the wall the exit is real you can see the light underneath it. also the exit just wouldn't be there in real life. it wouldn't be at an angle like that next to a train carriage.

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Could that train to just be a fake front of a train on the wall. It may do nothing but be scenery. this may just be a walk/queue through section of the ride? it might all just be scenery or the first story section?

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

the suspended train is just a shell maybe? the seats move away as one simworks vehicle. once the head sets are on. then return to another separate carriage which looks similar (or different depending on what has happened during, ripped apart ect) just to take off your vr goggles and get off? think i...

Re: Derren Brown's Ghost Train - New for 2016

Looks like it could be a circle load on > in the entrance to the tunnel > out the exit yes this could mean 3 trains going at once? (3x 20 = 60?) (loading on - going into tunnel - coming out of tunnel & unloading) also I think they mean every one sees a different experience as you can look around...
