It was previously reported on by VRFocus that Madame Tussauds opened up the virtual reality (VR) experience Ghostbusters: Dimensions at the beginning of the month, and now THE VOID has released a video of peoples’ reactions after trying it out.
THE VOID created Ghostbusters: Dimensions with its propriatory VR system including a backpack that vibrates, head-mounted display (HMD, and a gun that players use to obliterate the famously featured ghosts from the movie. In the video below you can get a glimpse at what all of this kit looks like on, and how the users took to the immersive and vibrating technology, with the general consensus being that it was “the best thing [they] have ever done”.
It wasn’t only the users who had something to say, but also the creator of Ghostbusters, Ivan Reitman, who said in the video: “I think it’s a pretty remarkable thing for the fans because you redo it. I mean, I tried it this morning and yesterday because you want to do it two or three times.”
There is more footage of what the whole experience is like, including the interior of what looks just like the sets used in the movie franchise, which can be viewed in the video below from THE VOID’s Facebook page.
First there’s the Ghostbusters Experience which starts in a New York City subway station guests will be confronted by Sparky, a ghost that haunts a subway car. The experience then proceeds to the Alridge Mansion Museum where they’ll find rickety doors, spooky portraits and moving rocking chairs while encountering Gertrude, an ill-ridden ghost who spits mock slime at them.
For more on this Ghostbusters experience, whether or not it will be venturing to other cities, and for all the latest news and updates in the world of VR, stay tuned to VRFocus.
