Fan Built an Insane Virtual ‘Aliens’ Ride in the Video Game ‘Planet Coaster’!
Turn off the lights. Turn up the volume. This is EPIC.
If you’ve ever dreamed of making your own amusement park attractions, you’d probably have a blast with Planet Coaster, a construction and management simulation video game developed and published by Frontier Developments back in 2016. In the game’s Sandbox mode, players are tasked to construct their own theme park on an empty plot of land.
Fan Hin Nya has done precisely that, creating Aliens: The Ride, a 15-minute experience that takes you on a virtual trip through the scariest theme park attraction (n)ever made.
Playing out like a virtual reality experience without the need for a headset, the painstakingly created ride is inspired by James Cameron’s Aliens, and it can best be described as a trip down into the deepest depths of Hell. The ride takes you through the corridors of a ship up in outer space, and yes, of course there are nasty Xenomorphs roaming about.
This immersive experience is one of the coolest treats for Aliens fans we’ve honestly EVER seen. So sit back, strap yourself in, and click the play button below to begin!
