Watch the test ride of Alton Towers' new virtual reality rollercoaster

Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield has walked in space. He’s BFFs with Tim Peake (well, he told us he emails him with pictures of what’s going on Earth anyway). And he’s now the first person to ride Galactica – the new attraction at Alton Towers.

It’s the world’s first roller coaster to take passengers into space - all thanks to virtual reality headsets. But how did it compare to driving, you know, an actual spaceship?

Yeah, we reckon there will be pretty big queues for Galactica when it opens on March 24 don’t you?
