Location-based virtual reality (VR) company SPACES and Skydance Media have announced the creation of a new attraction based on the popular Terminator movie franchise.
Having developed the Terminator VR experience for several months SPACES has said that guests will be able to join the Resistance, infiltrate Skynet, destroy Terminators, and hopefully save humanity in this theme park style adventure.
“SPACES has been delivering immersive VR experiences for years,“ notes Chris Hewish, EVP Interactive for Skydance Media. “When we experienced how they brought the Terminator world to life with their unique brand of multi-sensory VR, we knew this was something that would blow people’s minds. Now fans won’t just watch a story unfold in front of them, they will participate in one.”
To begin with the VR experience will come to a few select locations in the US, with SPACES preparing to announce these locations soon. In preparation for Terminator VR a small number of fans will have the chance to receive an exclusive behind-the-scenes sneak peek inside the Terminator universe, physically entering the world of the movie at an “undisclosed”, secret SPACES location.

“After developing and perfecting the Terminator VR experience, we can’t wait to share this with the world,” says Shiraz Akmal, SPACES’ CEO. “We build SPACES attractions to be limitless, fantastical experiences, allowing people to Go Anywhere Do Anything™. We’re going to issue a small number of special invitations to registered fans across the globe to ‘join the resistance’.”
“We want to push the boundaries of what’s possible with entertainment,” says Brad Herman, SPACES’ CTO. “We build SPACES attractions with the goal of taking guests on adventures with friends that they will never forget. With Terminator, our team of industry veterans has created a special blend of physical props, dynamic movement, and environmental effects for a social experience that fans will not only love but will want to experience again and again.”
In addition to Terminator VR, SPACES are currently working on several other experiences based on existing and original IP, that will be installed in theme-parks and retail locations around the world in the future. For further updates from SPACES, keep reading VRFocus.
