I'm not even a little interested in VR, but I will say that augmented reality is pretty cool. If you ever get the chance to play with Microsoft's Hololens, it's pretty amazing. That said, augmented reality is probably less interesting if you aren't at least somewhat familiar with the space that you're in. I wonder how effective it would be inside of a ride, especially if it's dark.
