MaxFlight VR 2002: “Cyber Roller
Coaster” Summer Hours Announced
You don’t have to drive to a theme park to have summer roller
coaster fun…if you’re staying at Colorado Belle Hotel Casino and
Microbrewery! The property’s guests have a tremendously exciting
entertainment option, the MaxFlight VR2002 Roller Coaster, right in
the arcade, and the new summer hours are perfect for kids (of all
ages) now that school is out! The hours are 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Sunday –Thursday, 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. Fridays and 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Saturdays. The ride is $5 per person, two people ride at a time.
Riders must be at least 48” tall.
The MaxFlight VR2002 Roller Coaster is a
customer programmable, full motion, virtual reality Cyber Roller
Coaster located on the boat’s “D Deck”. Packed with all the thrills
of a real theme park roller coaster, the Cyber Roller Coaster is
quite the ride. “This is full ‘virtual reality’,” explained Jenny
Allen, Colorado Belle Slot Department Director. “It has a 58-inch
video screen with LCD projection for the scenery, complete surround
sound with bass speakers inside the seat to simulate the rumble of a
roller coaster track, and it even has a special ventilation system
that blows wind in your face.”
The machine has a few things in common
with the “shopping mall” coaster simulators—compact size, thumping
music and video to simulate the rapidly passing scenery, but the
similarities end there. The patented “Forward-of-the-Axis” motion
technology gives the VR2002 Roller Coaster’s free-swinging passenger
pod the capability of full 360-degree pitch, roll, loop, spin and
spiral. According to Gary Arvedon, Director of Marketing for
MaxFlight Corporation, the coaster’s manufacturer, “What you see is
what you feel.”
Added to these multi-media features,
the full motion system allows riders to pull the same “G” forces
they would in an actual amusement park. The passengers actually
complete breathtaking back flips, barrel rolls, corkscrews,
upside-down tunnels, loops, spirals and more.
The innovation that makes the VR2002
Roller Coaster better than other simulation rides, and even better
than an amusement park coaster, is the programming option: it’s
fully customer programmable. Mild to wild, you decide. The
user-friendly computer system allows riders to choose from any of
the pre-programmed track settings or create their own, with up to 38
billion variations. Choose from a classic “Big Dipper” styled
hills-and-turns coaster to an impossible-in-the-real-world
anti-gravity, track jumping space station coaster (not for the faint
Also in the Video Arcade, kids of all
ages can find an excellent selection of popular arcade and midway
style games. Collect tickets for prizes, or just play for fun.
Roller Coaster fans, your ship has come in!
Everyone living in Laughlin has something to say about the lack
of entertainment for young kids. As hot as it gets here,
I find it hard to believe that a "water park" has yet to be built.
