Welcome to another VR 360 TV production, so strap in and get ready for a tip back in time on a virtual wooden roller coaster. The 360 coaster is situated next to a beautiful lake fenced off by decorative Victorian style railings, for health and safety reasons.
The roller coaster is built from over 20,0000 individual wooden planks and a laminated wooden track. The construction of these old roller coaster could not compare to today's fast iron coaster, but they where extremely fast for that time period, when you consider that most people had not even travelled in a motor car. One of the most fun factors of these old roller coasters where that they always felt as if they were about to fall apart, the beams and struts would actually move apart by inches and sometime even feet, adding to the scare factor of the rider.
As they would have thought that the ride was about to collapse right under them. 360 videos can be viewed on any device, if you are using a PC, use a browser that supports 360 videos such as Google Chrome or Firefox.
If you are watching on a mobile device such as a phone or tablet, make sure you download the YouTube app, you can then swipe around with your finger to see the full 360 degrees of the video. You can also move your phone around to see the 360 as well. However the best way to view 360 is in a VR headset such as an Oculus Quest or HTC Vive, although these headsets are amazing but can be a bit expensive.
The best way to experiment with VR is to buy a headset to put your phone in, such as a low cost google cardboard on amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Virtual-Real...
