You could either visit a theme park, or use Sweden-based INNTQ’s ROCO to build and ride virtual roller coasters. It’s claimed to be the world’s first interactive roller coaster experience, all packed into a 43-square-foot space, and just like its real-life counterpart, each ride is different, whether it be the person’s second, third, or tenth ride. The machine can seat two riders side-by-side seats, and once activated, use a touchscreen to draw the routes and shapes of their very own roller-coaster track.
Once you’re finished building the roller coaster, ROCO compiles the user-created tracks with randomized heights and loops that riders can then experience via the machine’s 75-inch ultra high-definition screen, complete with a motion system as well as immersive sound / wind effects. That’s right, ROCO manages to recreates the sensation of riding a roller coaster, right down to the clicks of the car as it climbs the track. These machines will soon be making their way into shopping malls, airports, sports stadiums, etc.

ROCO is unique in two major ways. Its interactive component allows for a distinctive experience so no two rides are ever the same, while its supporting business model generates a creative source of passive income for those who control wherever it’s located,” said Petter Hegnelius, Co-Founder & CEO of INNTQ.
