Patients at the University of Michigan's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital are getting the chance to "ride" some exciting roller coasters.

Child life specialists run a program that uses virtual reality to help very sick children enjoy amusement park entertainment without leaving the hospital. 

The program is made possible by the Game Start School and the Mott Golf Classic.

A video of kids enjoying the program has recently been posted to YouTube.
