Over 200 special guests, including Star Wars fans, gathered for the grand opening where – instead of a traditional ribbon cutting – the opening ceremony was taken up a notch with laser palm pads shooting up beams of light as a nod to the Star Wars universe with representation by the guests of honour to officially launch The VOID with Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire by ILMxLAB and The VOID.

The attendees were awed by the arrival of stormtroopers from a galaxy far, far away who were on hand for the opening. The VOID opened to the public on 6th December after an exclusive preview for partners of Resorts World Genting from 1-5 December. 

Compared with traditional location-based VR, The VOID hyper-reality experience brings a completely new immersive experience. The VOID uses custom VR technology along with physical stages to create immersive experiences that inspire exploration and engagement. And its proprietary designed equipment melds the physical and digital worlds through head-mounted displays (HMDs), backtopTM computers and haptic vests, allowing sensory effects to be felt from multiple points using haptic feedback, that place visitors inside impossible worlds.

The VOID’s hyper-reality experience center effortlessly switches between different titles to bring two of most iconic experiences available at The VOID to guests:

Tickets for Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire and Ralph Breaks VR at The VOID are available for pre-order on www.rwgenting.com.
