New VR Experience “Jumanji: Reverse the Curse“ Created By The VOID and Sony

Together The VOID, one of the business-leading companies for VR attractions for commercial locations, and Sony Pictures Virtual Reality created the new VR experience “Jumanji: Reverse the Curse“. The new immersive game is related to the upcoming Hollywood movie “Jumanji: The Next Level“, which is the sequel to 2017 “Jumanji: Welcome to the Djungle“, coming to the theaters in mid-December. The immersive game creates the chance for visitors to fully immerse into the movie and become one of the characters. Jake Zim, Senior Vice President of Sony Virtual Reality, explains: “As the characters in Jumanji are pulled into the game, we naturally had the idea to create a VR experience where fans can do the same. What’s more fun for moviegoers than to have the chance to live in VR as the characters they love – and, like in the movie, players will have to work together as a team to win the game and save Jumanji.“

It is now the second time that both entertainment companies have worked together. Back in 2016 they created “Ghostbusters™“, their first VR experience based on a movie. “Through close collaboration on this project, we have been able to develop a dimension that is more interactive and immersive than any VOID experience has ever been before. Utilizing new technology and more illusion design, Jumanji: Reverse the Curse is a true adventure that travelers will want to experience over and over again,“ adds Curtis Hickman, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer of The VOID. The new VR game will be open to players in selected The VOID locations in North America, Southeast Asia and Europe this holiday season starting on 27 November. (eap)
