This is the hilarious moment a man who is scared of heights tries out a virtual reality headset featuring a ride on a roller coaster.

Mr Best, who is scared of heights, grunted and groaned while experiencing the virtual ride

Unlike a traditional video game the VR headset ‘fools’ the user’s brain into believing that the user is in the middle of the scenario. 

During the footage, Mr Best is seen leaning from side to side and grunting and groaning as he is convinced he is being tossed around by the fairground attraction. 

According to the footage, Mr Best ‘hates heights and fairground rides’. 

Mr Best’s sister-in-law stood closely behind him in case he fell over while trying to keep balance. 

People using the VR headsets have reported suffering ‘Oculus Face’ with temporary red marks caused by the straps and spongy rim on the player’s cheeks and forehead. 

Some users have reported crashing into television while trying to leap across the virtual scenario forgetting they are still within the confines of their living room. 

The makers of the new generation of virtual reality headsets have warned that users could hurt themselves or become the victims of theft whilst they are using the devices.

Developers have said that because the goggles occupy a user’s entire visual field they are worried that they could walk into things.
