Today the newest branch of The Void, an immersive location-based VR experience center, opened in San Francisco, CA.
This newest location for The Void debuts with two of the company’s most popular attractions in the form of Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and Ralph Breaks VR. Secrets of the Empire is featured outside of both Disneyland and Disney World and was created in partnership by Lucasfilm and ILMxLAB as an official part of Star Wars lore. We tried it and really enjoyed it.
Ralph Breaks VR uses a very similar physical space layout but takes place in the Wreck-it-Ralph universe and is a great option of families with younger children. We liked it too for what it was.
There is no word yet on if this location will also get Ghostbusters or Nicodemus, but some of the new, upcoming experiences yet to be revealed for this year and next are likely safe bets. We’re expecting to likely see more Marvel and Disney experiences for sure based on past announcements.
In related news, we’ve been big fans of the work Nomadic is doing as well and they’re expanding to multiple new locations too. Their Arizona Sunshine zombie experience was very impressive with lots of physical object interaction.
The Void’s San Francisco location is on the 4th floor of the Westfield Mall, just off the escalator, at 865 Market St. They’re open every day from 10AM – 9PM and you can buy tickets for either Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire or Ralph Breaks VR, the two experiences on offer at this location, on the official website.
