Step into a galaxy far, far away with this new virtual reality experience coming this holiday season…
Have you always wanted to step into a galaxy far, far away? Now you have your chance. Joining the announcements of Star Wars themed lands and Star Wars hotels, fans will have a chance to virtually dive into Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire, a virtual reality simulation, announced by Star Wars.com this week.
Curtis Hickman, co-founder of THE VOID, who is teaming up with Lucasfilm and ILMxLAB to bring fans this unique experience, explains what to expect from this new adventure.
"“We combine the magic of illusions, advanced technology and virtual reality to create fully immersive social experiences that take guests to new worlds. A truly transformative experience is so much more than what you see with your eyes; it’s what you hear, feel, touch, and even smell. Through the power of THE VOID, guests who step into Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire won’t just see this world, they’ll know that they are part of this amazing story.”"
As of now, it’s unknown exactly how this experience will go down, but we do know that all five of your senses will be pushed to the limit.
Fans will experience iconic Star Wars characters and worlds in a way that you’ve only once dreamed of.
Located in Florida at the Disney World resorts, as well the Disneyland resorts in California, this new virtual adventure will open to the public sometime later this year, around the time that the Last Jedi opens in theaters December 15, 2017.
