Virtual rollercoaster game worth the side effects


August 01, 2017

I thought I’d dust off the PlayStation 4 VR headset I bought on release date and see what type of new video games were offered in the PlayStation Store.  I played a demo version of the new Spiderman Homecoming game which was a direct promotion of the movie but then I noticed a rollercoaster game that was only $19.99.  My girlfriend was eager to try it out, and although she doesn’t ride real rollercoasters, she convinced me to shell out the $20 and give Rollercoaster Dreams a shot.

Rollercoaster Dreams is published and developed by Bimboosoft and offers gamers a chance to visit a virtual amusement park.  Players can create their own parks and rides or visit parks created by players all over the world.  The game supports the PlayStation VR headset allowing gamers to experience the thrilling rides and attractions as if they were in the video game world.  Rollercoaster Dreams also has a management mode which allows players to create their own park choosing staff, advertisements, attractions and more.  Players are not limited to choosing premade rides either as the game allows infinite rollercoaster designs with the in-game editor.

Eager to experience the games, attractions and rides in VR mode I could barely contain my joy which was quickly evaporated by how uncomfortable the true VR experience was.  Don’t get me wrong the VR experience was true to what I expected and made me feel like I was in the video game world but the dizziness and nausea that followed the experience was no fun at all.  It’s not the same feeling you get when enjoying a ride at a real amusement park but it was cool to see the in-game world inside of the VR headset.  Also, some of the in-game attractions like throwing darts or a basketball through a hoop to win a prize were a bit buggy and did not respond to my IRL actions the way they should have in-game.

With all that said, I would still play the game again.  Although the game is buggy and may leave you with a light-headed and nauseating feeling, there is nothing like experience the virtual world it delivers.  The rollercoasters and rides are genuinely fun and truly simulate a real experience.  My girlfriend, who felt even more nauseated than I did, agreed that she would play it again as well just because of how cool the entire virtual experience is.  I do feel like the $19.99 is a bit pricey for the game however.  However if you got some extra cash laying around and want a sickening rollercoaster experience via PSVR then Rollercoaster Dreams is the game for you!
