With Halloween looming just around the corner, something sinister is getting ready to descend on the streets of Shoreditch and it’s certainly not for the faint of heart. A creepy, surreal experience like no other, the UK’s very first virtual reality haunted house and survivor game experience is about to set up shop in East London and tickets are on sale now.
Using cutting-edge virtual reality technology and their brilliant knack for curating bizarre, unknown content from across the world, the team at Hyper Reality have put together a totally unique and immersive experience that will chill you to the bone. Now you can finally find out how you and your friends would fare if you ever found yourself trapped in an old burnt-down Victorian house crawling with paranormal spirits, or left stranded in an apocalyptic wasteland fighting off rabid, flesh-eating Chinese zombies. With four different worlds to choose from, ranging from fun and bizarre to down-right terrifying, get ready to throw yourself into creepy new dimensions and experience VR like you never have before.
You might not necessarily be a stranger to quirky VR pop-ups but this, a UK exclusive coming straight to Shoreditch, is the very first of its kind. Unlike most VR experiences players are pretty much entirely unrestricted. You’re not tethered by cords or penned into a small confined area, instead, you’re left free to walk around and roam these terrifying worlds for as long as you can survive (or as long as you can stomach.)
The experience will be open to the public from 18th October to 30th November and tickets and more info can be found here. Here’s what Hyper Reality themselves had to say: “We’ve created an environment where all your senses are stimulated in order to awe, shock and immerse – to the point you’re not really sure what’s real and what isn’t. The hyper-reality we’ve worked hard to create is about you and for you, to give you the most amazing VR experience you’ll ever have. Making you feel like you’re a part of something that’s actually happening… and, at times, totally terrifying.”
