Re: Thorpe Park - The Past

I remember going as a kid it seemed like an amazing giant place! my fav ride space station zero I remember all the old animal rangers and a car ride where you could steer the cars but they were on a rail in the middle so it kept them on a rail track so to speak? think it went under the main entrance...

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

Looks like all the seats will have these removable packs fitted by the waist and over arm bars (would be very secure then). Could then just plug the head set in to the pack if the rider wants it. or if not just leave them as the seats to the left and right of the rider are in the picture. makes sens...

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

Also I work in IT and computers go wrong all the time crash ect.
wouldn't be great if you queued up got on the ride and yours didn't work properly.
could be a pain in the ass if the need like 5 servers running.
also if it gets run down over the years will it all work properly after a few years use?

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

in that new video he says "you experience it on your own". So I am betting you all sit on the carriage put the vr head set on then all the people sitting around you change to the ones in the movie. (in the movie). you don't see the real people sitting around you. this would explain the gre...

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

also found this

The ride's creators have indicated that multiple Vive headsets can be used in the same space and the ride includes live action performances so perhaps the whole set will be kitted out with Valve's Lighthouse basestations.

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

are we 100% sure this is using VR headsets? It could it be live action (universal studio style) flames etc, tempereature changes. and all happen around the carriage I just thing VR head sets on every one inside a train carriage would be a bit daft. surly a full VR screen around the carriage or somet...

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

they give the headset to you before you get on the ride so you can adjust it then when you get on the ride the attendants check the fit and plug you in.


This is what I predicted. then you hand them back they can clean them

Re: Thorpe Park - New Indoor Attraction 2016

In the promo video you see Darren being mapped to a 3d computer model on a green screen. Then the 3D model rig, the system of joints for the 3d character. then the completed 3d model of Darren as the homeless man. in the sequence on the wire frame 3d model it looks like he is to be in the carriage a...

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

(Europa Park adds world-first virtual reality experience to attraction's oldes...

Re: Galactica - 2016 Air Re-theme

I would just say try Google cardboard and VR apps for your phone! (free), (and get a cheap set of VR goggles which use your mobile to run VR like £7). every person who has tried mine has been blown away by it. I must say the effect is brilliant. VR is the new biggest thing! not on a rollercoaster it...

sadly nothing hidden in the frames which are fuzzy, just the same image shifted down to create an effect. I put it in adobe premiere and froze the frames. the figure looks like he is looking at a pocket watch or something tho? waiting for a train maybe? http://s13.postimg.org/cfqu5n1kn/image.jpg htt...

just noticed the logo of the people arms linked which we have seen a lot. Looks like a train track! under ground and get on-board all adds to the train underground theory
