Two Bit Circus, an experiential entertainment company has announced that is planning on opening the world’s first Micro-Amusement Park, designed to encourage elbow-to-elbow fun with the latest entertainment technology. This included a number of virtual reality (VR) and mixed reality (MR) experiences that will be sure to help put the park on the map.
The new park is set to open to the public this coming fall and is located at 634 Mateo Street in the Arts District in downtown Los Angeles, California. Over the past few months this 50,000 square foot building has been completely redesigned into a new kind of social playspace with the latest in multi-person VR, MR, and never-before-seen group games, molecular gastronomy, mechanical mixology and more all focused on having fun in nostalgic, traditional carnival ways.
“Each of our games is designed to encourage you to get out of your home, out of your seat, and into the moment with friends or strangers,” said Two Bit Circus CEO and Co-Founder, Brent Bushnell. “After years of bringing installations, attractions, activations, and games to events all over the world, we are thrilled to have a permanent location in DTLA and so excited to welcome guests under our brand new Big Top!”
Two Bit Circus have received strategic investment from CJ CGV, South Korea’s largest entertainment and theatrical company and the world’s fifth largest cinema exhibition company, to help accelerate the growth of the new Micro-Amusement Park.
Featuring multiple zones, each offering a new and exciting type of interactive experience, visitors will be able to enjoy a range of different titles along with uniquely appetizing food and beverage options. Some of which is prepared by house made robots to further enhance the experience that visitors will have at the Micro-Amusement Park.
“We’re excited to be working with Two Bit Circus and to be involved in the creation of the Micro-Amusement Park,” said Jeong Seo, CEO of CJ CGV. “We can’t wait to see how consumers respond to these new experiences and look forward to supporting Two Bit Circus’ growth.”
The Micro-Amusement Park is set to open this coming Fall and until then Two Bit Circus are hard at working getting the final touches in order. “There is a lot to do, and we don’t expect people to be able to do it all in one visit,” said Eric Gradman, Mad Inventor and Co-Founder of Two Bit Circus. “The content will be rotating regularly more like a theater than an arcade. We designed the park to be a fun casual outing, not a place you have to plan a trip to.”
