The critically acclaimed global leader in immersive virtual experiences, The VOID experience centers have marked a new frontier in interactive entertainment. Combining state-of-the art VR technology, physical stages and multi-sensory effects, including touch and smell, with Hollywood characters and storylines, The VOID letparticipants experience fully-immersive worlds that, until now, have only lived in the imagination. The VOID has nine experience centers globally, including five locations in the United States, two locations in Canada, one location in Dubai, U.A.E and one new location in Malaysia.
The highly anticipated hyper-reality experience that features cutting-edge technology and world-class content was unveiled last December at the new fully immersive experience center, The VOID, which spans nearly 7000 square feet at Skytropolis Funland, Resorts World Genting, Malaysia. The VOID hyper-reality experience center at Resorts World Genting is the biggest outside of North America and the first in Asia.
Last month, The VOID opened in a grand style with two titles, Star WarsTM: Secrets of the Empire and Ralph Breaks VR. This month, two further titles were introduced for a brand-new experience: Ghostbusters and Nicodemus: Demon of Evanishment for guests to enjoy a spine-chilling yet fun time.
Compared with traditional location-based VR, The VOID hyper-reality experience brings a completely new immersive experience. It uses custom VR technology along with physical stages to create immersive experiences that inspire exploration and engagement. The VOID’s proprietary designed equipment melds the physical and digital worlds through head-mounted displays (HMDs), backtopTM computers and haptic vests, allowing sensory effects to be felt from multiple points using haptic feedback, that place visitors inside impossible worlds.
The VOID’s hyper-reality experience center effortlessly switches between titles to bring four iconic experiences to guests:
Join Dr. Ray Stanz himself from the original Ghostbusters team and prove to him if you have what it takes to take down the poltergeists. The owner and only tenant of an old apartment building in New York claims it’s being haunted by an ancient ghosts. Arm yourself with a ‘proton pack’ to save New York City by busting any ghosts in sight. Along the way, fans of the film will be delighted to recognise familiar scenes. It’s time to be a Ghostbuster!
Nicodemus: Demon of Evanishment
Nicodemus is a bone-chilling journey that transports a team of four back in time to the decaying ruins of the renowned Chicago World’s Fair in 1894. The Chicago World’s Fair plays the backdrop as the abandoned site left to rot on the shores of Lake Michigan becomes a place where only shadows and the unknown remain. Guests can explore the hauntingly intriguing exhibits and watch out at every corner as they try to escape the clutches of the demon: Nicodemus. As the first publicly released original title of The VOID developed in collaboration with Ninja Theory, this experience provides guests with a haunting experience as a ‘haunted house’ of sorts with more interaction and exploration with mystery, discovery and adventure thrown into the mix.
Star WarsTM: Secrets of the Empire
Star WarsTM: Secrets of the Empire will take guests through a breath-taking journey where guests will feel the impact of blaster bolts, smell smoke from the surrounding environment, push buttons to solve an interactive puzzle to escape enemies, all while coordinating directly with their unit in real time through the blended virtual and physical world.
Ralph Breaks VR
Ralph Breaks VR is an original hyper-reality experience created by ILMxLAB and The VOID in collaboration with Walt Disney Animation Studios, based on their latest hit film Ralph Breaks the Internet. In Ralph Breaks VR, guests will sneak onto the internet disguised as ‘netizens’ to play the newest, coolest video game ever. Guests will shoot retro alien spaceships, squash pixel bugs, and fend off hordes of bunnies, and kitties in the Pancake Milkshake Diner while they team up with Ralph and Vanellope in the race against time to see who can rack up the highest score! It’s all fun and games until an evil security system shows up and threatens to take everyone offline … permanently.
