Need for 스피드
The latest fad to hit Korea seems to be Racing Bangs, or “Racing Rooms,” where people come to face off against multiple players on a virtual racetrack. In these rooms are multiple car-racing simulators in which players sit and control the car with a steering wheel, brake, accelerator, and gear shift.
But the game system in these rooms is not like the average kind that can be found at a dollar arcade. These machines are equipped with high-tech hydraulic chairs (to simulate the racing experience) along with three large screens (one for each major window in a car: one large windshield and two side windows) that display crystal clear graphics.
The seats rumble and jerk as if you were in an actual race car, while the sound effects coming from the top of the line sound system makes you feel like you are actually at Laguna Seca. The price? 3,000 won ($2.67) for 10 minutes of gameplay. The racing bang in the video is located in Pyeongtaek City located about 90 minutes south of Seoul.
