Virtual reality of fear

Horror movies and other fear films should be as envelope as possible, if not, what are the point? If you are not immersed in the atmosphere of what is happening, you will not feel the emotions that invite you to experience.

To attract people, the creators of games, movies, virtual visits and other contents turn into atmospheres, sounds, lighting and effective mechanics. Virtual reality has greatly expanded the possibilities of visual content developers, offering additional ways to attract users through the use of virtual reality glasses. And now the virtual reality scares in software and games, videos and online visits.

A fear mountain for virtual reality glasses

The virtual fear of fear has given new life to the well-known Russian mountain. How do you think it is the most terrifying virtual reality roller coaster? For more than a century, this attraction is considered one of the most popular in the world. You must admit that you would love to get on a roller coaster yourself, getting an adrenaline injection and a great mood. An investigation carried out in 2016 shows that this attraction is still standing and remains one of the most coveted by most parks in the world. The Russian mountain contributes greatly to the success of the attraction industry as a world tourist export.

Today, the digital age has introduced a new approach to the roller coaster, specifically introducing the RV, making the experience partial and sometimes completely virtual, but not less exciting;

The RV in the Russian mountains can be an aid to create an alternative reality (for example, visitors to attraction, with the help of special glasses, may experience being underwater or in space simultaneously with the main action of the attraction), as well as to create a completely virtual reality, in which the attraction itself is not even needed.

The first roller coaster in the world with improved virtual reality was presented in Europe in Europe-Park in Germany in 2015: RV technology joined the existing roller coaster;

Until now, this new technology is not a threat to the demand for conventional slides without RV elements. For example, more than 30% of the attraction parks in Europe and the United States have already implemented virtual reality in their usual attractions, so very soon the enjoyment of attractions with RV will be the norm. However, there will still be a simple roller coaster for those who do not want or cannot use virtual reality capabilities;

Some Russian mountain manufacturers (such as Camera) have already launched their own virtual reality division. They produce their own profits and gadgets, adding RV capabilities to their products;


Virtual reality can literally give a second life to projects that approach at the end of their useful life. An attraction charges quite ancient in a state of the US could have successfully incorporated virtual reality in a roller coaster of fear, but instead the business owner chose to close it. However, those traditional Russian mountains that were practically not profitable but that implemented the RV (such as Kraken Unleashed in SeaWorld and Galactic in Alton Towers) turned out to be a success, not only not breaking, but increasing their sales by 50% or more. Thus, virtual reality should be considered an additional asset to the infrastructure of the Russian mountains and the supply of products, rather than a threat to the demand for conventional slides.

Many RV enthusiasts have enjoyed a joint offer of Six Flags and Samsung Gear VR. The two companies have joined to launch special virtual reality attractions in the thematic parks (for now only in America). The essence of attraction is as follows: the participant has to wear Samsung Gear VR headphones driven by Oculus and enjoy a virtual reality trip while traveling a real roller coaster. One of the most terrifying virtual reality mountains ever created is Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, by Supermassive Games. It has already become a classic of terror in virtual reality.

During almost the whole game you have to ride a roller coaster through a house simply full of clowns, spooky puppets and other characters capable of scaring any1. This virtual game shows that, in reality, there are many spooky things to fear much more than to ride a roller coaster. You can read more about the game here.
