Experience Star Wars™ like never before in this fully immersive hyper-reality adventure.
This December, unleash your inner hero as you help lead the fledgling rebellion to galactic freedom in this incredible hyper-reality pop-up at Westfield London (Shepherd’s Bush).
Ever dreamt of entering the Star Wars universe? Of course you have! Every child growing up alongside the Star Wars films – and the franchise has been going strong since 1977, so we’re guessing that includes you – has at some point pretended to fight off intergalactic enemies alongside the fledgling rebellion. Gone are the days of jealously coveting your mate’s replica Stormtrooper blaster, because things are about to get a whole lot more realistic…
The tech wizards at The VOID and ILMxLAB are bringing the Star Wars universe to life with a multi-sensory hyper-reality experience unlike any other. They’re pushing the boundaries of VR by incorporating sound, smell and tactile elements to create an experience that actually feels… well, real.
Across the pond, The VOID have already experienced massive success with their Ghostbusters: Dimension experience, so we’re really lucky to be getting access to this new Star Wars offering, developed in collaboration with ILMxLAB. TIME magazine even described it as “the future of virtual reality” – this really is state of the art stuff!
And not only will it feel hyper-realistic you’ll also be experiencing a never-before-seen Star Wars story first hand. The budding intergalactic rebellion is enlisting your help on their mission to the molten planet of Mustafar. The success of this mission is crucial so they’re sending their best recruits (yes, that means you) along with droid K-2S0 to navigate through the enemy facility.
As is a necessary survival tactic in the Star Wars universe, you’ll masquerade as a faceless Stormtrooper behind enemy lines. And it certainly won’t be a walk in the park – you’ll need to solve puzzles and use your blasters to fight off giant lava monsters along the way. There’s danger around every corner!
You can book in for your interactive session at Westfield London (Shepherd’s Bush) in teams of up to four people. Don’t worry if your squad is bigger or smaller than this though, because you’ll be able to embark on your journey no matter what – you’ll just be teaming up with a few other new recruits.
This event is – unsurprisingly – expected to be extremely popular, so if you’re looking to embark on this particular adventure you’ll need to book your tickets well in advance here. It’s running from the 16th December 2017 to 7th March 2018 and will be open from 10am to 9.30pm Monday to Saturday and 12pm to 5.30pm on Sundays.
