    I remember watching a TV show years ago called "Prototype This!" and the video linked below is what really inspired me into motion simulation designs and builds. They built a full size water slide simulator, complete with motion and projectors. I wanted to share, check it out, it's worth the time. Shame the thing isn't still around, would be one hell of a ride!

    Too bad there is no game available on the market, I'm sure @value1, @prilad or @eaorobbie could develop a plugin for this!!

    mmm don't need a game, just a video playing on a projector screen in front of you, we can sync 6 DOF movements recorded from a ride of on the actual slide. And presto.
    Never say never . lol
    (Every time I have its bitten me back pretty quickly , lol)

    My backyard is definitely big enough, not sure what WAF is but if I need it to build something like this then I'm all for it. How hard can it be right...
