RiftDK2For those with the stomach, there is a well modelled VR experience of riding the Helix Rollercoaster situated at Liseberg’s amusement park in Gothenburg, Sweden, produced by the Virtual Dutchmen (part of ArchiVision Imaging in the Netherlands).

http://virtualdutchmen.com/experiences.php has more details and download links for Oculus Rift DK1 and DK2 versions for both Microsoft Windows and Apple Mac.


The Helix track is almost 1.4 km (4500 feet) long and the ride lasts for two minutes. Along the track are two launches where the coaster accelerates using Linear Synchronous Motors. The ride includes seven inversions, three airtime hills and plenty of drops, twists and turns. Look round and see how fellow riders are doing!
