Anyone else see the pixels due to the low resolution before you take off, I did a lot of adjusting and it was still quite low res, so I don't think it was due to my eyesight (which I did think it was at the start) but other people with contacts, who could see clearly described it the same to me, like reallly on the lift, near the bottom of the VR, you couldn't see very well if it was low down.
Other than that it was really good! The VR seemed good after the lift because you are flying around and you can't tell its low res after that, just on the lift when you look down at the small details.
Best part was back row for realism as it felt like you were flying upwards as you are dragged over the top of the lift. Made the fly to lie seem longer as well to me, and the whole ride itself to be fair. Would I ride it again? Yes. Would I ride it more than I usually would if they let us remove the headsets? Yes.
To me galactica with and without VR feel like to completely different rides. Not sure which I prefer now though!
I do think it would be better if they built different effects into the ride, like freezing cold air, warm air, possibly some others. (Just what they could add to the first video). And then have an announcement when you have the headsets on, or added to the preshow video, or have staff tell you 'you will be visiting Nero 5 and Kepler 9. Enjoy your intergalactic adventure' or something similar. Would be something so simple, but enhance the experience so much more!
If they do bring out more destinations, put them in a different video, add fire and ice, maybe other effects around the ride, altering around the ride depending on which video to your train gets. (This is what the ride needs, and why I said have the whole train go to the same destination).
As if you had a different destination to everyone else on the train, the effects wouldn't have the impact they usually would have for everyone. Basically have different effects you could feel off ride, differing depending on the destination.
The staff interaction telling you where you're going and to enjoy your flight or something similar, and different effects that you could feel around the ride like fire and ice would increase the ride from a 7/10 (my own opinion) to a 9/10. It would make what feels like the complete experience off ride, be the complete experience in the station and on the ride.
Oh yeah, I think there was someone who got off a couple of trains before me playing up a bit, and complaining about something. Anyway I heard staff talking to another staff member, what he said was something along the lines of 'its not rocket science is it' about the GP complaining or something. All that went on in my head was rocket science = space = Galactica
