Ride a Coaster in 360 Feature

Cedar Point Amusement Park in Ohio, USA is one of the largest in the world.  Now they have the first digital recreation of a coaster called Valravn that you can ride today with this 360° video.  The Valravn rollercoaster isn’t set to be completed and functional in the real world until 2016.

This presents a unique opportunity for Cedar Point to get valuable feedback as they continue to work on the coaster.  Owners of Google Cardboard, Oculus Rift, and Gear VR Virtual Reality Headsets can experience what it will be like to ride Valravn.  If you are prone to motion sickness at all, we recommend you stay away from this 360° video, as it is sure to make you quite dizzy.

If the digital recreation of this rollercoaster ride wasn’t good enough, the entire park looks like it was also created as you can see in the above photo.  Perhaps this is the beginning of other full length theme park rides being brought to 360° before they even arrive in the real world?

You will want to view this video at 2160p resolution for best effect while donning a VR Headset.  It is recommended to manually change the setting to 2160p and wait for the entire video to load before viewing.


Information on Cedar Point can be found on their official site.  Cedar Point is the Roller Coaster capital of the world.  If you ever have a chance to visit Ohio, or more likely find yourself driving through it, it might be worth your while to drop by and experience some of the most insane coasters America has to offer.
