The premiere location will launch at LA’s Westfield Century City this December.
Location-based VR studio and retailer Dreamscape Immersive this week confirmed plans for four new state-of-the-art immersive venues across Los Angeles, CA; Dallas/Fort Worth, TX; Columbus, OH; and the New York/New Jersey metro area.
Launched in partnership with AMC Theaters, the first location will be open to the public December 14th at Westfield Century City in Los Angeles, California and will feature three original free-roam VR experiences for participants of all ages.
In Alien Zoo, guests travel to an intergalactic sanctuary where they’ll have the opportunity to interact with a healthy variety of endangered alien species. Visitors can participate in numerous activities throughout the experience, from playing catch with frogcats, to cuddling with strange-looking beasts; all of which culminating in a fast-paced escape from a terrifying predator known as Sicari.
Lavan’s Magic Projector: The Lost Pearl throws guests into the middle of a feature film where they’ll be tasked with solving a tangled mystery while avoiding deadly traps and collecting clues.
In the final experience, The Blue: Deep Rescue, users dive into a jaw-dropping ocean world where they’ll explore various undersea life before assisting in the rescue of a baby Blue Whale in the hopes of reuniting it with its mother.
The Westfield Century City location will also feature five stand-alone adventure pods with a revolving catalogue of both original and studio experiences.
“What sets Dreamscape VR apart from all others are the magical minds responsible for crafting such captivating, immersive experiences, the likes of which has never been seen before,” said Adam Aron, CEO and President of AMC Entertainment, in an official release. “Audiences have come to expect innovations from our company, and Dreamscape and AMC are going to deliver a next-level entertainment option.”
Tickets for the premiere venue are available now over at dreamscapeimmersive.com. The following three locations will launch as either stand-alone or in-theater venues beginning mid 2019.
Founded in 2016 by film producer Walter Parkes, global live events producer Kevin Wall and his partner Aaron Grosky, Artanim co-founders Caecilia Charbonnnier and Sylvain Chagué, entrepreneur Ronald Menzel, and former Chief Creative Officer at Disney Imagineering, Bruce Vaughn, Dreamscape Immersive has since partnered with numerous high-profile studios and clients, such as 21st Century Fox, WarnerMedia, Steven Spielberg, and Hans Zimmer.
In 2017, AMC Theatres invested $10 million during the studios series B equity round, followed by another $10 million to fund the production of Dreamscape Immersive experiences. This 2018 expansion marks the next big step towards the studios goal of dominating the location-based VR scene.
