The VOID out-of-home VR company is adding an official Wreck-It Ralph experience to four of their locations. ‘Ralph Breaks VR’ officially opens on the 21st of November, next Wednesday. The VOID describes the experience as:
Shoot retro alien spaceships, squash pixel bugs, and fend off hordes of bunnies and kitties in the Pancake Milkshake Diner while you team up with Ralph and Vanellope in a race against time to see who can rack up the highest score! It’s all fun and games until an evil security system shows up and threatens to take you and your new buddies offline…permanently.
The experience was jointly developed by Walt Disney Animation Studios and ILMxLAB (also owned by Disney). It was originally announced in September alongside an unnamed Marvel experience, which is expected in 2019.
ILMxLAB were also behind the existing Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire at The VOID, which opened in January.
The 4 locations Ralph Breaks VR will be available at are:
- Anaheim, California
- Glendale, California
- Las Vegas, Nevada
- Orlando, Florida
With Star Wars, Wreck it Ralph, Ghostbusters, and a future Marvel experience, the VOID now has an impressive lineup up content for their VR theme parks. It seems that major entertainment companies consider the ability to physically move around a large space (“warehouse scale VR”) to be a compelling case for bringing their content to VR.
