Review: While I thought this was a VR app about a Danish brand of butter (Lurpak) it turns out it is a pretty great VR coaster. While it could do with a load of polish when it comes to the graphics the scenery, setting and track transitions where pretty awesome. It’s pretty smooth as well with bank curves most of the way which does help reduce nausea felt in certain parts of the ride (but not all of it). The underwater transition was the best part, but there are other surprises that are also pretty cool. For the current price of £1.69, this is well worth a look by anyone who loves their virtual rides.
