Yesterday we were invited out to Six Flags Great America for the media day for the newest VR coaster.
JoAnna was on hand for the festivities and for another in our string of awesome VR coaster Reverse POV's. (seriously, if you haven't seen Randy's POV of Dare Devil Dive and Matt and Gregg's POV of The New Revolution you really need to check them out.

It's fun. It makes Demon a completely different ride. However Demon is a short ride, so I wish it was a bit longer. Can't really do anything about that. I do wish the whole fighter pilot thing was not there. That maybe you're the Gargoyle wreaking havoc. Ted and I both agree that it may work with XFlight. Still it's a fun ride and I'll ride it again.
We've got our credentials and are ready to head in ...
Love that they give riders the option of VR and Non-VR.
We'll be back at the park this weekend so we'll be able to see how they actually have this set up.
We've got 2 video's from the event, one with me and Ted with some amazing commentary (it was our first ride on the VR so we had NO idea what to expect)
And some awesome B-Roll that may or may not contain a bonus coaster in there. =)
Just like some of the other VR coasters, you start in a hangar
But that's where the similarities end, not only are you attacked by Gargoyles, but you actually get to shoot throughout the entire ride.
That's gonna hurt in the morning
Shoot Her!!! Shoot Her!!!
As you can see, the Gargoyle's have kind of destroyed the city
Missile through the gut
So what do you all think? Is this a good addition to the Six Flags VR lineup? Are you excited for this version of the VR coaster coming to other Six Flags parks for Fright Fest this year? Let us know in the comments below.
We'll be back at the park this weekend and will have more pics and fun.
