Today, New Yorkers can head over to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Time Square to catch the opening of THE VOID’s “Ghostbusters: Dimension,” a virtual reality experience that lets fans become a ghostbuster. We only get a super short clip of the wireless, full-body experience, but it looks cool enough for me to drag myself into the horrible noisy mess that is Time Square.
Tickets are a bit steep, but it might be worth it for fans who have the cash. Dimension is part of a larger exhibit that includes wax figures of the actors, a sensory experience covering the subway, a haunted mansion, and more filled with spooks, and an Ecto-2 ride (for an Ecto-1 ride, check out the Lyft promotion). While I’ve never understood the appeal of wax figures, their behind-the-scenes gallery looks awesome.
The 15-minute long experience, which allows you to virtually bust some ghosts in groups of three players, includes real-time interactive effects and a physical set. Chief Visionary Officer James Jensen says, “The Ghostbusters world is a perfect fit for The Void because you literally strap our Rapture gear on and it turns into your proton pack and proton gun.”
