We have seen and tried a lot of coasters and funfair attractions and made a list of the best experiences you can find.
- Cyber Space
Cyber Space is a game where the brains get significantly shaken up. Once you put on your goggles, end up in the chair of the so-called ‘Pendulum ride’. This chair is connected to a big arm that will spin you into the air. This ride is definitely our number one, because it offers the biggest feeling experience. Your stomach will turn guaranteed!
The second ride in our top five is Helix. This coaster is based on the original Helix roller coaster at Liseberg in Gothenburg, Sweden. The track is almost 1,4 km (4500 feet) long and the ride lasts for two minutes! With speeds up to 100 km/h (62 mph) this is an intense coaster, even in VR!
