I Did Virtual Reality and OMG!

My grandson insisted I try his virtual reality. It was my first time ever! He set everything up for me and placed the goggles on my head. Then, WHAM! I was on a roller coaster on an island surrounded by beautiful turquoise water and loaded with palm trees. Seagulls flew in the sky. Everything was wonderful until the roller coaster began to move. I felt as if I were in it. I don’t like roller coasters. I was frightened and had to look at the ocean, palm trees, or seagulls a lot! I couldn’t wait for it to end and kept my eyes closed for the last few minutes. It was 13 minutes long and most of it with me screaming. His daddy went for a “ride” and vomited afterwards. Next I went to Jurassic Park. It wasn’t as frightening. However I loved the volcanic explosion and enjoyed the various dinosaurs fighting. Now I need something more mellow.

@DianneN I tried soon before Covid, our friend from Monte Carlo loves so much all those gadgets, as soon a new one is available he buys and he always brought them here to let us try. I played virtual reality golf for a while, but I had to stop, I get vertigo and nausea.

Don't they have something more mellow like an island with pretty girls and nice scenic spots?

I don't get it though, I have enough problems with reality and altered reality and I don't need a third kind to keep track of.

I bought a VR many years ago when it was at a nascent stage. Hearing your experiences I might buy some new ones.

@DianneN I would rather like to have some soothing or pleasant experience like scuba diving, going through a dense forest etc. I wouldn't be able to handle such thrilling and extreme adrenaline rushing experiences too.

@DianneN It sounds amazing. I also do not like roller coasters. You are not alone. Maybe it is too much for us older folks. I love Jurassic Park. The whole thing aside from the roller coaster sounds amazing. Do you need goggles for it or can you do it without too?

You need goggles. Standing alongside dinosaurs was fun, but not when you think they are going to whack you with their tails or bite you. I had to remind myself it was fake. lol

@DianneN I do not have goggles. Too bad there is not something I can watch that I feel like I am there without goggles. That would not be fun when the dinosaurs whack their tails at you or bite.

We don't have the set up at home, but we've experienced VR - the kids love it. We went to a local mountain lion festival and they had a VR thing in a "wild" environment . . . pretty cool! I would love the rollercoaster ones . . . I used to love rides and now I'm not a fan . . . but at least with VR I know I would always be safe.
