Universal Orlando has already received awards for its Halloween Horror Nights, and it seems like it isn’t done with its dastardly deeds just yet. The resort, paired with VRstudios, developers of VRcade, has now announced its new generation of psychological horror with The Repository.
This is a limited-time attraction, as well as limited for youngsters as it has an age restriction for those below 13 years of age. There isn’t too much shared about the actual content of the story that leads this experience, except for the fact it is “an entirely unique storyline that will pave the way for even more brand new, best-in-class experiences across Universal Orlando Resort”. It was said on Universal Orlando’s blog that “All of this is set in a centuries old warehouse where paranormal and supernatural artifacts have been collected and stored for hundreds of years. Recently though, the secretive organization behind this practice has installed state-of-the-art technology that allows spectral transportation into paranormal realms.”
It mixes both VR and real experiences, and is described as an immersive theatre experience, as guests explore in small teams to solve a dark mystery in “highly thematic physical environments and interact with real-life characters”. Universal Orlando describes what VRstudios has designed for the experience as “a first-of-its-kind VR platform”.
The limited time that this experience is available for is during its Halloween Horror Nights, which starts on 29th September and runs through til October 31st, the big night. Those who will be attending those nights can upgrade their tickets to become a part of the experience. These tickets will cost $49.99 (USD) and can be purchased by calling (+1)407-224-7840.
