One thought on “Virtual Reality Announced for Sky Rocket at Kennywood

  1. This is asinine, especially on Sky Rocket. I’m supposed to be excited for kludgy, mediocre VR? Not to mention that it’s going to murder capacity on a ride that already only does 12 people a cycle…

    So, no, not excited about it. VR in this form factor isn’t ready for coasters, and I would’ve hoped that parks would have seen the reviews at Six Flags et. al. and realized that these hacky retrofits are lame, low-effort cash grabs. I wish parks would stop doing it, and I’m disappointed to see Kennywood going for it.
