We have reached the future — a future in which virtual roller coasters can take you along the real rise and fall of cryptocurrency. Welcome to DogeCoaster.
Unveiled at this year’s IAAPA Expo 2021, the DogeCoaster will feature a virtual track that twists, turns, and dives according to the actual rise and fall of Dogecoin prices over the past year. The coaster is expecting to “launch to the Moon” in Q1 2022.
The DogeCoaster virtual experience will be run by the AT360, a compact, looping roller coaster simulator that uses its three axes to rotate and spin “faster than a traditional roller coaster,” complete with full virtual reality (VR) immersion.
The AT360 is testing now on the show floor at IAAPA Expo. At some point next year, the AT360 will offer five virtual roller coaster tracks to experience.
The Doge meme became popular in 2013 and consists of a Shiba Inu dog paired with multicolored, lowercase text in Comic Sans that represents an internal monologue written in a form of broken English. Dogecoin was created by software engineers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer as a “joke,” also in 2013, but has since become somewhat of a legitimate investment currency.
At the time of writing, there’s no confirmed home for DogeCoaster or where guests will be able to experience the world’s first cryptocurrency roller coaster.
What do you think about the idea of a virtual coaster themed to cryptocurrency? Is it just a meme gone too far, or is it something you’d actually want to experience? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
