Drop of Doom was great (my first Intamin drop tower barring Falcons Fury)
It's quite the adrenaline rush! Are they only running with the VR or could you choose to ride without?
As someone else said, it's optional. They just had a table set up at the front of the queueline, a lady asked me if I wanted VR or not, and if not I got given a red wristband thing to wear.
When I was there, most people I saw chose no VR. It was however slowing down the operations, as the staff were triple checking the VR people were all good before dispatching.
