Title: AUGMENTED RIDE SYSTEM AND METHOD
Abstract:
A ride system includes a ride vehicle configured to accommodate a passenger and travel along a ride path during a ride in an amusement park, a head mounted display connected to the ride vehicle and configured to be worn by the passenger, and a ride and game control system integrated with the ride vehicle and configured to coordinate a ride experience of the passenger with events occurring during the ride using at least the head mounted display and the ride vehicle. The ride and game control system includes a user interface, a ride controller, and a monitoring system. The ride and game control system also includes a computer graphics generation system communicatively coupled to the head mounted display and configured to selectively generate AR features for display on the head mounted display based on data received from the ride controller, the monitoring system, the user interface, or any combination thereof.
