How to Take Virtual Roller Coaster Rides From Home

How to Take Virtual Roller Coaster Rides From Home

While we wait to hear whether or not our favorite amusement parks will open for the 2020 season, take a virtual ride of your favorite roller coasters from the comfort of your home.

Amusement parks are a staple of the spring, and riding our favorite roller coasters and rides are a huge part of that. Whether we are taking a family trip to Disney World or taking our hundredth ride on the Cyclone at Coney Island, some rides just don't get old and we can experience the magic time and time again. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, it is uncertain whether or not our favorite amusement parks will reopen for the 2020 season. Until we know, you can experience some of your favorite roller coasters digitally from the comfort of your couch thanks to Youtube.
