A new park is to open next year in Mid Sussex that will be ‘fully virtual’ – according to creators.

The new park will consist of over SDPs (Sensory Deprivation Pods), in which visitors will experience all the effects of a full day at a theme park.

There will be no motion in the pods – says the designer – in order to “open up the theme park experience to those who suffer motion sickness or pregnancy.”

“Of course” he added “the illusion of motion created by the SDPs is probably enough to set off motion sickness. And sensory deprivation is not advised for pregnant women.”

It is unclear exactly how the effect will be achieved, however it is expected wind, light and other visual effects will be utilised.

“The best part is you can ride any coaster in the world without having to queue up or pay for expensive tickets. We just take POV videos from YouTube.”

REALISM: YouTube POVS reflect the true ride experience, say critics.

The attraction will open on April 1st 2015 and tickets will cost £199.99 per person (Exc. VAT).
