A new technology that reduces motion sickness in rollercoasters may soon come to Universal Orlando.
Comcast Corp., partial owner of Universal Parks and Resorts, filed a patent earlier this month that seems to address the issue of motion sickness in rides, according to a report from the Orlando Business Journal.
In a 2017 study from the National Center for Biotechnology for Information, 82 participants were divided into four groups to test different methods to reduce motion sickness. The study concluded the airflow method proved to "significantly reduce" the symptoms.
Universal Orlando declined to comment on the patent.
