The MotorCo Guide to Six Flags Great America application is a relative location and semi-virtual based guide to the amusement park in Gurnee, IL (outside of Chicago).
The free version of the app has ads, but no registration or sharing of location.
The app calculates the users distance to all of the attractions in the park, and sorts them from closest to furthest so the user knows exactly what is around and which rides are nearby.
This allows the user to triangulate their distance and make better decisions and optimize your time.
Each attraction also has a detailed description, a live Google map that will take the user to the location, as well as a YouTube video or VR simulation that shows the user exactly what the ride is like, so you can see or simulate what the ride is like before you go on it. For the rides, we find videos can be more informative. We could show you the landing of say the Joker, but its not the same as watching the ride from start to finish. This way you know what you are getting yourself into.
The app works on the wearable as well.
