Bust Ghosts at NYC Madame Tussauds’ Ghostbusters VR Experience

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.”
