Having revealed plans to open what it calls the world’s first ‘micro-amusement park’, entertainment company Two Bit Circus has now confirmed that the grand opening will take place next week in downtown Los Angeles, California.
So what can you expect? Well Two Bit Circus has designed the park as a social playspace, bringing people together to enjoy the ever-changing landscape of immersive entertainment; including multi-person virtual reality (VR), narrative-based escape/story rooms, indie arcades, an interactive theater, molecular mixology, a robot bartender and more.
With 38,000 square feet of play space, guests will be able to play Rebellion’s Battlezone, jump into cooperative, multiplayer VR experience The Raft, enjoy single-player experiences in the VR Stations or play Hologate which features physical guns. Pricing and times do vary depending on the experience, with some details still to be finalised. The Raft for example takes 25 minutes with four players and costs $15 USD per person.
To start things off Two Bit Circus will be having a grand opening celebration on 5th September, at 634 Mateo Street in LA for press and invited guests. The company will be hosting its own version of the traditional ‘ribbon cutting’ ceremony with a few pyrotechnics thrown in. Then on Friday, 7th September at 4pm Two Bit Circus will officially be open to the public.
For those keen on seeing what the Two Bit Circus micro-amusement park has to offer they can book a Sneak Peek ticket on the official website. Select your preferred day between 10th – 27th September and you’ll be able to enter between 4pm – 11pm. The ticket costs $25 and you’ll get a special card at the front desk which comes loaded with $50 worth of games. The card is good for every game and attraction in the park (food and beverages not included) and they do not expire. Don’t spend it all and come back another day.
