If you're in need of more Adrenalin, how about wearing a Samsung VR while on a roller coaster? Because it's now a possibility

Designed as a promotion between Samsung and Six Flags in order to promote the brand new Gear VR hardware, users now have the option to wear this device while literally riding a roller coaster.

While some users and companies have made pneumatic roller coaster seats that move and jostle in conjunction with VR headsets, this literal roller coaster ride pits you as a fighter pilot battling against all odds, with the real g-forces of the roller coaster assisting in the whole sensory-overload experience.

As seen on Gizmodo this promotion is set to kick off on March 10, with it set to extend to Six Flags sites in Arlington, Atlanta, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Lake George, Montreal, San Antonio, Agawam (Massachusetts) and Upper Marlboro (Maryland).

How will the Samsung VR devices stay on your head and not fly away? We don't know just yet.
