Alton Towers has elaborated that the Galatica VR rollercoaster ride will see users enjoy a trip into deep space, with movement synchronised to the peaks and valleys of the rollercoaster and a maximum speed of 75km/h.
Sensors inside each VR headset will monitor and tailor graphics accordingly, though users will be strapped tightly into the ride and will largely be unable to move their heads to any great degree.
