Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois announced this morning their plans to add Drop of Doom VR to the park’s Giant Drop attraction.  Riders will don Samsung Gear VR headsets, and become pilots of a gunship being attacked by mutant spiders.


The VR attraction will make it’s debut on April 29.  Down below is a description of the experience, directly from the park:

  • A high speed virtual vertical ascent up 100 stories, while teetering off the edge of a helicopter;
  • A 360-degree rotating view high above massive city skyscrapers that are under siege by enormous spiders;
  • A high-intensity gun battle against a giant arachnid, spewing baby spiders that virtually crawl all over the rider’s body;
  • A thrilling 100-story fiery plunge straight down between towering skyscrapers; and
  • The final showdown with a spider the size of a van, teeth-gnashing and in full attack mode.
