New Star Wars experience coming to Disney Springs

New Star Wars experience coming to Disney Springs

This ground-breaking experience will open to the public at two new VOID Experience Centers at Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort and Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort beginning this holiday season.

Lucasfilm released an image of its anticipated Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire attraction. They will move freely, using their eyes, ears, touch, and even smell through this multi-sensory experience. "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 wonderful story". "At ILMxLAB, we want people to step inside the worlds of our stories", said ILMxLab's executive in charge Vicki Dobbs Beck".

The VOID now has four experience centers: Madame Tussauds in New York, The Rec Room in Toronto, Canada, The Beach in Dubai, and its headquarters outside in Lindon, Utah, just outside Salt Lake City. If that's the case, well, Star Wars fans will probably be freaking out quite a bit in a few months when Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire launches.




Anything Star Wars related tends to be big news, so today, location-based virtual reality (VR) specialist The VOID has revealed a major announcement. Featuring a "Ghostbusters" story line and costing $20 a person, that experience allows participants - outfitted with special virtual-reality gear - to feel as if they are searching for ghosts in a NY apartment building. Tickets cost $24-25 per person in Toronto and Utah, and are packaged with Madame Tussauds admission in NY.

Founded in 2015, ILMxLAB, Lucasfilm's Immersive Entertainment division, combines compelling storytelling, technological innovation and world-class production to create truly impactful, immersive entertainment experiences.

The Void is one of a number of startups looking to take virtual reality out of the living room, and into special experience centers where consumers can walk around, open doors, and pick up props. For more information visit ilmxlab.com or follow @ILMxLAB on Twitter.
