For me, it’s movement within a physical space. I haven’t seen MMRR or Sw:RotR in person, but those seem like next gen dark rides, just like Spider-Man was back when IOA first opened. All of these involve movement around physical sets that immerse riders with new technology.I'm also fine with VR and screens, though I'm confused as to what most people's boundaries are. For example, Spiderman (my favorite ride of all time) heavily utilizes screens. Are the sets/physical elements in that ride enough to sate most anti-screenz people? Not trying to debate anything, just curious. I'd be very happy with a Monsters ride that has the same balance Spidey does, for example.
VR, however, implies video headsets where everything is digital and no physical sets. So, no issue with using new tech, but a fully VR ride experience sounds boring to me because it’ll lack real sets.
Cool to hear about the queue and pre show. Guess I’ll just have to wait and see what the VR portion is like.
