AUSTIN, Texas — Your kids are bored and you are at your wit's end. Parents, we feel you. So a trip to Austin's Park n' Pizza may be just what everyone needs. And they've got a new attraction to check out too. Team Daybreak gave it a spin.
"It's not just a kids market, it's for adults and for children," said President and Owner Michael Goss.
This gaming park is located off of North Interstate Highway 35 in Pflugerville and offers a full 22 acres of fun.
"You are not going to find anything bigger," added Goss.
You've got countless video games, miniature golf, go-karts and bumper boats. Inside, the virtual reality coaster is their latest attraction and the idea behind it was birthed in Austin.
"I call it an all-axis rotation machine. Some people call it a roller coaster VR," said co-creator Al Tupushev.
With the help of his kids and financing from a company in China, Tupushev co-created the mechanical part of the ride.
KVUE's Leslie Adami and Kalyn Norwood handled it like a bunch of pros. Bryan Mays and our photographer, JP, rode the coaster with ease. However, I can't say the same for me and Anavid. Let's just say there was a lot of yelling.
The virtual reality machine is one of the only ones in the market that takes you upside down and around just like a real ride.
"It really felt like you were on a roller coaster. A couple of times I had to look down because I was feeling sick," said Anavid.
The coaster can take you through 10 different scenarios. For example, you can ride the rails in space and through a haunted house. And if this VR experience isn't what you are looking for, perhaps a smooth, carousel ride may be just the ticket.
With all the running around, you are bound to get hungry. They've got two restaurants, a full bar and grill and an all you can eat buffet. Some tickets include food as well.
