Not For The Faint Hearted: Derren Brown VR Show
April 17, 2017

Derren Brown's Ghost Train experience at Thorpe Park opened last year to mixed reviews, but it's now been given a revamp and promises to be a much scarier ride this time around.

 

The freaky immersive experience features multi-sensory elements, including VR illusion, live action, 4D special effects and physical transit.

It also features a modern Tube train carriage suspended in mid-air, and lasts much longer than your average ride, meaning it could actually be longer than the queue times for once. (But probably not.)

 

Digital Spy was among those who got to experience the updated ride, which launched last month with celebrities including Alesha Dixon, the stars of Tattoo Fixers, Humans actor Colin Morgan and X Factor winner Matt Terry.

 

The ride takes in 60 people at a time, and you are treated to a surprisingly lifelike hologram of Derren telling you the rules and what to expect.

 

"You are going to find yourself in a unique experience," he tells us. "If you do find yourself slipping down a rabbit hole, if it all gets too much, close your eyes, it'll be easy."

 

We won't give away too much, but it involves state-of-the-art HTC Vive headsets, plenty of monsters, and undoubtedly screaming visitors.

 

Derren Brown's Ghost Train: Rise of the Demon is open at Thorpe Park right now. Tickets for the park can be found atwww.thorpepark.com.
