“Terminator Genisys” Location-Based VR Experience Coming to Los Angeles, San Jose

June 7, 2018

Los Angeles-based virtual reality (VR) startup Spaces announced Thursday morning that it’s launching a location-based VR experience inspired by the 2015 film “Terminator Genisys” in partnership with Skydance Media, which owns the rights to the “Terminator” franchise.

 

Similar to recent location-based VR experiences such as The Void’s “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire” and Dreamscape Immersive’s “Alien Zoo,” “Terminator” is a modular pop-up that can be set up in existing retail locations.

 

But unlike its predecessors, “Terminator” personalizes the experience by scanning the faces of guests, who play in teams of four, and applying them to their game avatars. Once they have their avatar personalized, guests play as cyborgs sent to post-apocalyptic Downtown Los Angeles to disable a Skynet Communication hub defended by a battalion of by T-600 Terminators.

 

After completing the mission, which features wind, motion effects and scents, guests will be given the option of downloading individual POV videos and automatically-generated third-person action highlight clips that can be shared to social media.

 

“You think of all the theme park attractions you’ve gone to, there’s a photo afterwards. We’ve taken that further,” said Shiraz Akmal, CEO of Spaces VR. “We have all kinds of patents [covering] real-time streaming of everything happening from every headset, with all the audio and video captured, so you walk away with this memory of your experience.”
