Wen't on it last week. Very pleased with the updates and the new VR footage is fantastic.
UK theme parks from another point of view!

It should be noted that HTC actively encourage using Vive away from gaming, and using it in situations like this and in other situations such as medicine, so no I don't think it's quite such a crazy move to use it here. Whilst I can see why you may not like it, calling an attraction terrible because it didn't work on your goes seems a bit naive to me - as it's obvious that it works well for many many others, and it'll obviously be a bit naff if it has a hissy fit. If we all had the mentality that all attractions that unfortunately suffer from tech issues were terrible we'd never see such attractions as Escape from Gringotts, Lightning Rod and Flight of Passage. The attraction isn't everyone's cup of tea but the majority can still appreciate how truly remarkable it is - including the companies who have allegedly already ordered a clone of sorts if the ride system.
I'd also say to avoid riding it more than twice a visit if you can help it - because otherwise you'll overdo it and it won't be half as enjoyable as if you have a break.
