University of Applied Sciences Kaiserslautern professor Thomas Wagner has created The Augmented Thrill Ride Project. The project fits participants with an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset as to shut out the already thrilling happenings of a normal roller coaster, the user then experiences a number of different journeys through their headset, in one instance, riders were even handed a controller to shoot asteroids as they rocketed their way through space.

I really hope this takes off, it looks so cool!
