Having secured new funding in December 2017, location-based virtual reality (VR) specialist Dreamscape Immersive has opened a new location at Westfield Century City Mall in Los Angeles, California. On show for one month only will be a new experience called Alien Zoo.
The 12-minute experience -allow for around 40 minutes in total – will equip up to six visitors with a light backpack, sensor-equipped gloves, shoe coverings, and VR headset before going on a fantastical journey where they’ll encounter massive beasts, play with adorable and exotic creatures, and fight deadly predators whilst being able to touch, feel, and smell the surroundings.
Suitable for ages 10 and up and at least 48 inches tall, Alien Zoo can accommodate guests who use wheelchairs but they must be able to transfer into one of Dreamscape Immersive’s specially equipped Zoo wheelchairs. Anyone under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
The experience opens today with showstimes as follows: Monday – Saturday: First show at 12:00PM, Last show at 8:40PM; Sunday: First show at 11:00AM, Last show at 7:00PM. Tickets retail for $20 USD each and you’ll need to be fairly quick as slots are selling fast. At the time of writing this week is already sold out and next week only has a few time slots available each day. Alien Zoo will only be open until 2nd March.
The company is collaborating with AMC Entertainment to open up six Dreamscape Immersive VR Centers in both North America and the UK but has yet to give a timeline for these plans. The expansion plans were helped by an investment round that secured the company $30 million.
