Come back Archive/Electric Bill!!

If you insist!I am glad you have enjoyed it, although I really should have put more effort in. The audio is in mono, for example. Whoops.Thanks for the compliments. I might give it a watch myself!

That's an awesome video!I've always been put off of Hex as I didn't know much about it and thought it was just a boring ride!Went on it in Feb half term and love it! Really glad I went on now!

Hex has had some fantastic changes made to it!  When I visited a few days ago the audio in the vault was much, much louder creating an amazing atmosphere.  Also, there was a thick smoke effect in the Octagon room, as well as some new lighting throughout, including strobes.  Very impressed!

Been hearing this to. Maybe they're waiting to see the feedback Galactica gets and then they'll implement it. Could potentially have it open by tail end of this year that way too.

Gives them a chance to work on that side of the ruins too whilst the area isn't in use with driving school closed as well :)

am I right in thinking the video on VR is static? as in it's not gonna move left and right if you turn your head? (idk much about it at all)

 

if so then isn't hex an odd ride to have it on considering being able to look around the room is what makes it so disorienting and your head movement isn't limited with any restraint?

Video in VR isn't static, it would move left and right.

Not VR, but AR. (Is that the correct terminology? Augmented Reality. I've not got much idea about these things! Rather than a mask replacing your vision it includes what you are really looking at real time and then adds to it.) If that's the case then DBGT is the test, not Galactica.

I can see that having a lot of potential on Hex, especially in the Octagon which is slightly lacking in effects and always will be what with it being a real old protected building.

HAHA oh dear

Theme parks are so crap now that such rumours even exist, or that the rides even shut in the first place, and that its been half broken for years

If people genuinely love VR theme park add ons then that's fine, but youre forcing out decades of cultural following, expertise and learning within the industry. Personally I'm happy to stop caring about theme parks and let a new wave take over, but the implications of where things are headed are such a shame

I believe that VR will be a theme park game changer - but not in a positive way. What does the future hold for real theming when it can be replaced by a screen in front of you?

AR however seems like it could have a larger positive impact....

Yay let's mess up the best dark ride in the UK with the latest technology fad and probably make a meal of it...

 

Sigh, so done with Merlin atm...
