Well, that's... disappointing. Putting VR on the most painful drop tower ever made? Two wrongs don't make a right. :?r

Jeez, Could you imagine VR on a Stand Up Coaster Like Apocalypse or Vortex? Or Manhattan Express

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

More people would surely know arachnophobia.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I'm actually interested in how the experience of Acrophobia VR will be like. Yes, I have a fear of spiders, but I'm willing to ride this!
check out my RCT3 projects!

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I made a big spider pit in RCT3 once. There was a cool coaster going through it that dove under one for the main drop and then between two as it exited a top hat. I made my sister watch the POV. She left the room after the first one.

So many people hate spiders. I think this particular VR will flop hard.

From my experience at SFOG, most people already call it Arachnophobia even with all the signs saying Acrophobia and the actual definition posted on the wall throughout the queue. It is a more than obvious great idea for this VR though. Oh well.

Acrophobia becomes Arachnophobia!!!!! It could have had a cute sign and everything.


Definitely a missed opportunity.


Disney probably has the name locked up as a theme park ride. I thought John Goodman was very entertaining in the movie. But I may have been inebriated when I saw it.

They could always just put it in an open outdoor space that's teeming with people and call it Agoraphobia.

Wait..
