Title: Motion ride method and apparatus for illusion of teleportation

Abstract: A method and apparatus for a motion ride that creates the illusion of teleportation on passengers in a passenger vehicle. This is accomplished in four steps of the method. Multiple embodiments of varying apparatus are presented for completing the four steps of the method. Passengers in the first step view a primary environment, in the second step passengers are surrounded by a secondary environment, in the third step passengers experience Galilean invariance by viewing the velocity of multiple of images of motion of the secondary environment being relative to the velocity of the passenger vehicle as selected from a group consisting of equal magnitude and same direction, equal magnitude and opposite direction, greater magnitude and same direction, greater magnitude and opposite direction, lesser magnitude and same direction, and lesser magnitude and opposite direction, and in the fourth step passengers again view the primary environment.
