A Sweet Ride – IAAPA ’94

By 1994 the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) exhibition floor was packed with VR systems. As a potential marketplace, blood was in the water and you couldn’t tell the fish from the sharks. With a very few exceptions most of these companies had been chewed up, eaten and excreted as waste by the ’95 or ’96 show.

Motion platforms were very much the rage; safety less so by the looks of this system:

And a couple more motion platforms:
