Derren Brown is a master of illusion and psychological manipulation. He's earned a reputation through a number of live shows and TV specials that challenge what people think is humanly possible. Guessing the UK's National Lottery numbers, beating (at least some) chess champions, sticking people to their chairs at home -- you get the picture. The ride at Thorpe Park seems equally mysterious and unique, promising a 10 to 15 minute ride "the like of which guests will never have taken before." Visitors will apparently play a part in the proceedings, pushing the creaky train through one of 12 possible journeys and two distinct endings.
HTC's VR headset is involved in some capacity, but based on the early trailers it's difficult to discern how they'll be implemented. Like everyone else, we'll just have to wait until the ride opens in May.
