Busch Gardens Williamsburg Reveals New Attraction for Park's 2018 Season

Although the park just opened for the season this weekend, Busch Gardens Williamsburg has already spilled the beans about what they have planned for 2018.  Not named quite yet, the park is going to be introducing the first ever motion simulation that will have riders wearing individual virtual reality headsets instead of viewing one large screen.

The attraction will be located within the Ireland themed section of the park, and use the existing motion simulator hardware that was most recently called Europe In The Air.

At the same time as the announcement the theme park released this preview video, explaining more about their plans.

The theme of the new attraction is based around the two worlds of Ireland, the one we're able to see and the one that contains mythical creatures - for instance you can see both a dragon and a fairy in the logo up top.  More on this interesting and first-of-a-kind ride as it develops.
