Get a ride on a virtual reality roller coaster

Piloting a fighter jet, dodging skyscrapers and battling alien intruders -- all while barreling along a steel track hundreds of feet in the air.

Welcome aboard a virtual reality roller coaster.

It'south a concept that may modify roller coasters forever by combining the traditional steel track with VR technology to space thrill seekers in a totally virtual world.

Here'south how it works:

Before boarding the coaster, riders strap a VR headset across their face. They won't look where the steel track is going, or what'south coming up next. As the ride launches into a series of steep drops, banks and loops, riders are engulfed in high-definition imagery and 360-degree virtual views. There'south even a legend line to chase as they're screaming their heads off.
