The Void Virtual Reality Experience

Hollywood Gothique Says:

The Void immerses you in an imaginary world where you can bust ghosts with a proton back or track an ancient demon at the 1893 World’s Fair. Either way, you will feel – quite literally – as if you are inside the virtual landscape of shadows and terror, which emphasizes story to create an interactive experience more akin to immersive theatre than video gaming.

The Void Virtual Reality: Information
The Void star-wars-secrets-empire-hero
Four is the magic number for groups entering The Void.

The Void combines VR technology with physical settings to create a unique free-roaming virtual reality experience that includes physical interactivity. There are currently three Void shows running at the Glendale Galleria, one of which is specifically designed as a seasonal Halloween attraction: Nicodemus: Demon of Evanishment; Ghostbusters: Dimension; and Star Wars: Secrets of the EmpireNicodemus: Demon of Evanishment is the VR equivalent of a haunted house walk-through maze, which casts participants as investigators searching for a demon that disrupted a 19th century world's fair.

The Void Virtual Reality: Equipment

The VR gear, including headset and backpack, weighs about twenty-five pounds. The backpack (which occasionally simulates impact from the surrounding environment) can be a little tight for people not in the best shape, but any discomfort wears off quickly after the adrenalin starts pumping. The headset is large enough to accommodate eyeglasses. Lockers are available to store hats, coats, and sweaters.

The Void Virtual Reality: Checking In

The Void Glendale is located inside the Glendale Galleria, near Victoria's Secret.

Advance tickets are recommended to reserve check-in time; arrive early, and allow approximately one hour for the entire experience, which includes signing a waiver. Depending on crowds, there may be wait times.
